I’ve seen a couple of posts written by mixed race people who are part black saying that they’re mixed, not black. I don’t see these two things as being mutually exclusive, though.

They’ll say “I’m not black. I’m not white. I’m black AND white” (white can be exchanged for another race but the…

But it is. You feel excluded from both races. That’s why you identify as mixed.

But it’s not like you’re either mixed or black - you’re mixed because you’re part black (if you are in fact part black). When you get into multiracial people it gets more difficult but when talking about biracial people mixed with black, being mixed isn’t a standalone race. You are black but you are also [whatever else]. It should be more like: “I am black. I am white. I am mixed.” Instead of: “I’m not black. I’m not white. I’m mixed.” The thing about being mixed is that it’s a mixture of already existing races/ethnicities. You may feel excluded from both races but that’s what you’re made up of. You can identify as mixed, I do, but you’re still made up of those races/ethnicities.

I guess I wouldn’t know. I’m not biracial, but rather multiracial.

The Boreal Forest, Canada

The Canadian Boreal Forest  is one of the biggest forests and wetland ecosystems which are still left on the face of the earth (a Boreal Forests are also known as ”Taiga”). The Canadian Boreal Forest has a very large populations of wolves, grizzly bears, and woodland caribou. The Canadian Boreal Forest contains about 1.5 million lakes which are 80% earth’s fresh water (excluding frozen areas) also some of Canada’s largest lakes can be found there.  In Alberta, around 90% of cutlines (almost a decade later) have not yet regrown and mark the earth as man made scars(Cutlines are narrow and linear features created as a part of geophysical surveys). Instead cutlines accumulate water and become small canals.
