Quote Of The Day: Paula Patton Is Offended By The Term “Biracial”

- By Bossip Staff Categories: News, Quote of The Day, Something New

We posted a quote from Paula Patton’s interview with Women’s Health magazine last month about her husband Robin Thicke being super duper proud of his super duper sperm. And here’s another gem from that article where the knocked up banger reveals she’s offended by the term biracial.

“I find [the term biracial] offensive. It’s a way for people to separate themselves from African-Americans….a way of saying ‘I’m better than that,’” says Paula, who is expecting her first son with crooner hubby Robin Thicke this spring. “I’m black because that’s the way the world sees me. People aren’t calling Barack Obama biracial. Most people think there’s a black president….People judged me because I was light-skinned. [They’d assume] I didn’t want to be part of the black race,” she says.
