Mariah Carey Opens Up About Being Spat On As A Child Because Of Her Race!

Hateful behavior is always an ugly thing but it especially hurts our hearts when kids are involved.

Mariah Carey recalled this week a time when she was on the receiving end of a racist attack while riding home on the school bus, saying a fellow student spit on her because of the color of her skin!

What reminded Mariah of the incident was a scene from her upcoming movie The Butler, in which a white woman spits on a black college student during the Woolworth's Lunch Counter sit-in. At a news conference this week, Carey told reporters:

"That actually happened to me. I know people would be in shock and not really want to believe or accept that, but it did. That right there, that was almost the deepest thing to me in the movie because I know what she went through."

That is downright HORRIBLE!

Mariah's mom is white and her father is African American and Venezuelan. Growing up in Long Island, Mimi had to deal with a lot of prejudice from people in her youth, including her maternal grandmother, who Mariah has claimed in the past disowned her mother for marrying a man of color!

No wonder Mariah is so strong today! Look at all she's had to overcome!

We are SO looking forward to seeing The Butler which will feature Mariah Carey in perhaps her most challenging acting role yet - playing a field slave. The movie also stars Oprah Winfrey and Forest Whitaker.

    The best thing about this sad situation is that the spitter is probably fat, bald bum by now. Mariah has class and that idiot can kiss her behind!

    She isn't black, just because you got some African blood in you doesn't make you black. Mariah is mixed or multiracial

    BentleyBanx, you're a fool full of ignorance. You obviously choose to blindness as your ignorance is a poisonous bliss. You don't know your left nut from your right.

    Yeah and Halle Berry is pure White and not more than once race. Boy, you people should jump off a bridge spreading that kind of hate. Mariah is black, venezuelan, Irish… Her dad is black (the woman carries the seed, the genes of the dad proceeds). Yeah go study some science. Have you ever seen a "black person"? Black is the color of a PS3…Ass clowns.

    I don't see why people are getting so defensive.. It's fact. Mariah isn't black. She is light skinned - would probably be considered white by most. However, looking at photos of Mariah as a child, her skin was naturally a lot darker than it is now. Her skin seemed to grow lighter as she got older (isn't it usually the other way around?). And you guys can't deny that Mariah does come across desperate to be considered black. I love her, but it's true. She brings up the race thing at every given opportunity.

    Mariah's father was Venezuelan and was black. What I don't understand is why people of mixed races ALWAYS say they are black. Why not white?

    How old are you commenters? She was born in 1970. interracial children were always considered black and it was hugely frowned upon by BOTH races, the fact she is half white has nothing to do with it, she would have been looked down on because of her black father.

    SO her dad was hlf black/ half latino, so why doesnt she claim that shes latina too?
    I'm sorry but most of the times you are judged by what you look like, and she doesn't look 1/4 black, much less black at all, if she didn't keep saying it, then no one would realise it looking at her.

    MeMe's skin is white-she even has to get spray on tans-this is all a desperate pathetic attempt to make a movie she barely has a bit part in all about MeMe- obviously not getting enough sympathy for her self inflicted blubber related injury even with the ridiculous slings-MeMe is the one always throwing the black card around mostly to get BET awards and to sell CD's to a demographic she feels is easily manipulated and brainwashed by pornnn advertising-honestly the way SHE uses the black community is racist

    Re: Melly Mel – yes and her mom was ALL white so mostly white looks white-maybe Latino-bleaches and straightens her hair and runs whining to Barbara Walters when she feels threatened by an actual black person-I have more American Indian in me and no one thinks I am anything but white-besides the American Indian has much better race stories-ones about genicide-and deliberate infesting of small pox-she probably stole someones seat on the bus and was being a selfish Bee-yotch-it is your nasty attitude MeMe not your skin that people don't like you even now for-grow up whining cow

    if yall do some research you would learn that according to the law if you have .01% black in you then you are considered black and nothing else…if you don't like it then tell your politicians to change the law and recognize multiracial
