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.

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 (Friday 29 May 2015; 11:08)
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 (Friday 29 May 2015; 8:37)
