Study: Mixed-race people have identity problems.

A British report has found that mixed-race people have the greatest risk of suffering from mental health problems, in many cases because they are unhappy being mixed, and instead preferring to associate with one of their parent’s races.

Many Black and White mixed-race people prefer to call themselves “Black”, for example Barrack Obama, and find it depressing to consider themselves mixed.

The research, backed by the National Children’s Bureau, also found that other races of people, and those such as teachers, could not understand their background.

The report called ‘Mixed Experiences – growing up mixed race: mental health and wellbeing‘ collected information from many different studies, along with interviews from mixed-race people talking about their experiences as children.
