“I was in every activity,” Rashida told Marie Claire. “I got really good grades; I was a mathlete. I wouldn’t say I have mastery in any one thing, but I’m pretty good at a bunch of stuff.”

FYI: Rashida is wearing a Vita Fede ring.

    Its funny how some biracial people decide to identify not as mixed but as only one side of their two races and Rashida has always given me the impression she’s more at home with being white while her sister Kidada Jones seemed to embrace being black just like Tracee Ellis-Ross, Halle Berry, Lenny Kravitz, Shemar Moore and some others do and have stated out loud that they are black/African American. On the other hand, Rashida seems to be in that club shared by Slash, Cash Warren, Wentworth Miller, Van Diesel and Nicole Ritchie to name a few that either who prefer ambiguity which to me says they’d rather be identified as not black imo. I’m just making an observation

    I agree and disagree. I think alot of people believe in one drop theory. I am not one however i am asian and white. You do need to remember her back ground though. Her sister was with tupac and didnt believe in interracial marriages. Rashida wrote an open latter to Tupac about it and how she was a product of a biracial relationship as was her sister. I think she accepts both sides if she clearly stated she was biracial. She is just talking about school. I dont think that is an identifier one way or another.

    Oh I do believe they each accept all of who they are. A more succinct statement from me should have been that in my opinion, I believe there is probably a comfort level/ease that is or isn’t felt depending on the situation. Slash never EVER refers to himself as part black but 1/2 American while Halle Berry considers herself straight up black and I’ve heard her say as much. It’s also about who has accepted them in. I have a truckload of biracial relatives who are not only white, but Asian (Cambodian and Filipino) and my black family accepted them without fan fair but I can’t say the other side of that was so welcoming.
