Pretty sure Jennifer Beals self-id's as more black than one might think by looking at her. (She's done interviews and stuff where she talks about this. Also, I love her.) Read: I don't think there's a reason to think she self-id's as less black than Alicia Keys just because she looks less black than AK does.

i don't want to get into a debate about this, not that you do either but I just have not heard any representation from Jennifer about her roots. Black or White. Much in the same way as Slash. They both are very neutral when it comes to their background. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

However, in my opinion and in my reality, white folks treat and look at biracial people like regular black folks. For every biracial(specifically black/white) person there is a black person who has the exact same features who's parents were both black. of course there are exceptions to the rule.

consequently, at the end of the day if genarlow wilson or the jena 6 were biracial(again black/white) they would have received the exact same discriminatory treatment.

Really, she's mixed?  Nicole Ritchie would be another good example.

ETA: Wiki says Biel is not mixed with black: Biel was born in Ely, Minnesota, daughter of Kimberly (Kim) Biel (née Conroe) and Jonathan Edward Biel, an entrepreneur.[1] She is of mixed Native American (Choctaw) and European (German, French, Irish and English) ancestry

Wrong Beal.  UNAS was referring to Jennifer Beals, who is biracial.

thats what i meant thanks

Additionaly, I think if a mixed person has to ask than they already know.

For example, Alicia Keys or Jason Kidd would not hesitate to check black
On the flip side Jessica Beale would probably put "other" or white (no disrespect to her, its just the way I see it)

The only credited response to this question is to click whatever benefits you most when applying.

No, the credited response is that I have no interest whatsoever in helping people who identify as black only for purposes of admissions, nor would I want any such people admitted to my law school by doing so.  Therefore, I will advise "confused" people to check what they identify with most.

Amen

Just thought I would drop this one by.

I have no rage or anger towards this gentleman and I wish him the best. I am just pointing this out. Damn I just realized something, i just wasted 5 minutes that I could have been ignoring legacy admits again to propagate the hyperbole of racial tension cause by AA

I saw an old white homeless guy dying on the street the other day.  Think I can buy his white privilege off him?  He seems pretty hard up, I should be able to get a good rate...  ???

You'd probably be able to find it more cheaply at the same place that sells the +15 black LSAT....

It is right next to the store that sells police harassment, poor public schooling, negative imagery in the media, glass ceilings, institutionalized racism, history removal and distortion and racial superiority. Believe it or not it is actually a pretty big store. It is so massive if you aren't paying close attention you might completely miss the store that sells +15 black lsats.

On a serious note, I went to an HBCU an though white folks received monetary incentives to attend for the purpose of diversity I think it is safe to say that racial tension did not exist. I will also submit those students brought some value added to the HBCU experience because of their difference in background.

On a related note. For racial tension to exist two or more parties have to feel tense. If only one party is tense it is no longer racial tension, but rather racial anxiety. At this point you have to look internally
