Half-Caste is the most derogatory term to describe a person of mixed race – Juliet Ibrahim

Published

on

Ghanaian  actress Juliet Ibrahim has taken to the social media to correct the impression that skin colour is what defines an African.

while sharing her view about being an African, referred to a conversation she had with someone who doesn’t see her as a black woman.

According to her, the person argued that she was not a black woman because her skin was not dark enough.

 I had a random conversation the other day with someone and it was appalling when he mentioned passively to me that he doesn’t see me as a Blackwoman.

He argued, you are not “black enough” your skin isn’t dark enough, your hair not kinky enough. And thus my siblings and I do not “count” as Black.” She wrote.

The mother of one stressed that she is a black woman adding that many Africans see her as a half-caste while white people see her as a black woman.

Now, this is exactly, what we are fighting to correct amongst ourselves and the world at large. I am a black woman! When I’m abroad amongst the whites, I am classified and recognized as a black woman, however, right amongst us Africans, I’ll be referred to as a Half-Caste.

Juliet who is of Ghanian and Lebanon descent  added that using the term half-caste for mixed-race people like her is derogatory

This is the most derogatory term to describe a person of mixed race or mixed ethnicity.

We are referred to as mixed-race or multi-racial! Mixed race people are no less black than their dark-skinned counterparts.” She wrote.

He argued, you are not “black enough” your skin isn’t dark enough, your hair not kinky enough. And thus my siblings and I do not “count” as Black. Now this is Exactly, what we are fighting to correct amongst ourselves and the world at large. I am a black woman!

This is the most derogatory term to describe a person of mixed race or mixed ethnicity. We are referred to as mixed race or multi-racial! Mixed race people are no less black than their dark-skinned counterparts. So, let’s all say NO to RACISM, TRIBALISM, COLORISM and SEGREGATION. Let’s teach and train our children to grow up and accept people for who they are and not by the color of their skin.
