In a recent interview with Women’s Health magazine, actress Paula Patton spoke about her mixed background and her identity, She told them:

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. I’m Black because that’s the way the worlds sees me. People aren’t calling Obama biracial. Most people think there’s a Black president.
