Lauren London Reveals How She Struggled with Being Biracial

Whether it’s Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Paula Patton, or other biracial celebrities a common topic they have all addressed are the identity issues they had to deal with while growing up.  Lauren London, who was born to an African American mother and a Jewish father, recently revealed how she struggled with her bi-racial identity while growing up in an interview with Skin Deep.  Read what she had to say below.

Whatever your ethnicity is, in this life you are going to be on a journey to discover who you are and how you feel about yourself. I do remember being teased by my cousins on my mom’s side for not being black enough, and then I’d spend the summer with my dad and be sent to all white summer camps where I was “that black girl.” I struggled for about a minute with that, then I figured it out for myself. What it has done for me is I don’t care what people think about my identity. If someone thinks I’m not black enough that’s their issue. I’m okay with who I am and it is what is. I’m a Black woman like my mother, and I love who my father is, and I love both sides of me. Nobody makes a big deaI about it anymore because I won’t take that anymore.

Read the interview in its entirety here.
