After reading Frances Onipede neo-McCarthyist style smear attack against the TMA. It is obvious that she doesn’t really give care about mixed race people and our struggles.

Onipede’s pretty speech in the TMA guestbook can be interpreted as her defense of the “right” of “one droppers” to discipline those they falsely claim or try put in their place. Amazing. When someone dares have the audacity to criticize the “one droppers” ridiculous logic behind forcing a certain identity for mixed-race people, then they are the bully. However, when “one droppers” threatens them with psychological terrorism as well as character assassination, they must not be criticized. With “friends” like Onipede, who needs enemies.
