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.

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.

H.A.T.E.U - Remix ft Oj Da Juiceman, Big Boi, Gucci Mane (48,023) by Will from England

Shout out to this fantastic remix from Memoirs that sadly never really saw the light. I love that she re-sang that song and the whistle notes in the background. It's just great and I love it. But I wish it was available to buy.
