Mariah Carey talks to biracial teens

Mariah's multiracial heritage isn't something she talks about much - Mariah's mother is white and her father is black and Venezualen. Oprah talks with Mariah about her life and growing up biracial. And Pat Carey, Mariah's mother, and other guests share their experiences.
Even with an older brother and sister who experienced the same pain and torment of growing up biracial, Mariah says she felt like no one could relate to her. Mariah says that out of all her accomplishments, her most important influence has been as a role model to biracial children and teens. Through her music she has been a source of encouragement and strength to those lost in between two worlds.
Eight-year-old Haley says that being biracial is difficult because she feels like she's not black enough and not white enough. Haley's mom Suzanne wasn't sure how to talk to Haley about her feeling of being bi-racial, so she asked her to write her feelings down. Haley came up with an incredible poem.

Bill from UK / Emotions (46,872) by Skip from United States

Thank you, Bill. It was actually me who asked about the Emotions remix. I'm so happy to hear there's a CD out there with this mix on it so I can finally get it in higher quality. And thank you for the smart deduction that those extra lyrics must have been edited or from a different take. Smart detective work there.
