A nickname given to Black American females who have high traces of mixed heritage (Usually of both Native American and European), via her long - but still soft - hair, light and fair skin complextion, other phenotypes that differentiate her from other generic black girls.
Generic black girls will approach them and give them compliments, tell them how they wished they had long hair like theirs, comb their hair... Behind their backs, most black girls are really envious of such girls.
At first glance, people will automatically assume that these girls are half black and half something else. Though they are of high mixed heritage, girls nicknamed Pocahontas most likely classify themselves as black/african american.
I'm black, but my mom has Cherokee heritage and my dad Irish, so I don't have generic black phenotypes. I have been dubbed "Pocahontas" by a lot of people, and thus, I have been adored and rediculed at the same time.
We can all laugh at HIV, AIDS, cancer, and a legion of other STDs and mental disorders, but - God forbid - we can't ever get away with making fun of some kid saying "FUCKING ASS LICKER" 20 times in twelve minutes.
That's Tourette Syndrome for ya.
a fairly good golfer who cant admit the fact that hes BLACK just like the rest of us, no matter how many races he's mixed with (thats the whole point of being black.)
i mean, the 37.5% Chinese, 25% of African descent, 25% Thai, and 12.5% Native American, OR 52.5% Asian, 25% of African descent, and 12.5% Native American is just to friggin stupid and a sign of desperation to be NOT black. (mariah carey has the same problem and oprah set her straight)
there are a lot of us mixed with native american, white, and asian, but we're black for the most part! your either white or your black in the US! its a one drop system here! Remember, Hybrids are not included in the Census count.
"music" that promotes ghetto hoodrat behavior and gives a bad stereotype toward our race.
should really be spelled "raap" music sense "retarded assholes attempting music" makes a lot more sense.
rap is the most disgraceful and disappointing excuse for "music" ever. if the only thing you do is talk into a microphone about how miserable ur ghetto life is with a dumb beat in the background, then anyone can get money.
another well known mythical creature. the legend of the phoenix has different variation all around the world and appears in many cultures. the phoenix is said to live for thousand and thousands of years. it will conbust each time it feels death and be reborn from the ashes. the phoenix is said to have a bueatiful sound. it gets more mournful as its life comes to an end.
only one phoenix can exist at a time though.
next to the dragon, the phoenix has got to be one of the best myhtical creatures.
another politically incorrect word that is used by ignorant people to clump all asians in one group, much like how the word "hispanic
" is used to clump all spanish/portuguese speakers in one group. to many it is a derogatory word, seeing that 1) there is no actual country, commonwealth, territory or state known as the "orient" and 2) that asians come from different ethnic backgrounds, religions, and speak different languages. ironically, many asians think that the term oriental is parrallel to word "nigger" and some see the word as old fashion. the terms "westerner" and "middle eastern
" follow the same pattern as "oriental" but are less controversial.
if it were up to me, i would eliminate the terms oriental, hispanic, middle eastern, african american and etc., seeing that no matter what common region we hail from, we all have different ethnic backgrounds, religions and speak different languages.
a college in south bend, indiana with a lot of rich wise ass whores who think that theyre all that, but if they were really all that they would gotten into yale or havard. it is also a very, very big gothic style cathedral in paris, france. it was also the setting for Victor Hugos "the hunchback of notre dame".
Notre Dame is technically not pronounced correctly in America, just like alot of streets, counties, and cities are pronounced differently in original French.
