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.

Memories and rants (53,841) by Lee TS from USA

Ummm, I don't think she's really dissing her own videos. Like a lot of people said it's very much "I don't like how I looked in that picture" kind of deal. She's giving these funny little moments that happened and laughing about it. To me, it's a lot like during First Vision when she told the story about how LTT took a lot of time to film because i... read more

Why so serious? (53,840) by Bino from Philippines

And dramatic all the time? Mariah is clearly having a good time "ranting" (i.e., complaining in a way that's unreasonable) about her videos. Cut her some slack. It's her videos, as LC mentioned, her "memories", so she can say whatever she wants about them. I for one am enjoying it, getting to know about these petty things that bothered her. I find ... read more
