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.

Re: Meteorite (49,505) by NYHotShotta from USA

I also agree Meteorite is an amazing song and it deserved singled treatment with an amazing visually enriched music video. Q-Tip is a producer Mariah should keep around. I also think she should work with Danja, The Neptunes, Missy Elliot, Seven Aurelius, and Swizz Beats again.

YDKWTD, Meteorite, Sony and the future (49,504) by Stacey from USA

I spoke of these two songs awhile ago. I'm just glad to see more fans giving these songs some love. They are pure gold. The thing I love about them both is that have that disco retro feel, yet forward facing combination. MC has been doing that her entire career. She has such a knack for bringing up past grooves while avoiding sounding dated. It's o... read more
