“There are some Biracial people who don’t identify as Black. They only say ‘I’m Biracial’ or ‘I’m Black and White.’ If you say, ‘Oh you’re Black,’ they’ll correct you. For me, I feel that there’s what you identify as and then there’s how people perceive you. I may identify as a Biracial person – I’m Black and White – but if people see me as a Black woman, that’s how I’m treated. So I identify as a Black woman because I move through the world as a Black woman.”
