Did you know that Michael Scoffield was biracial? Yes his father is a black man. Is that interesting how some actors can "pass" as white. If the world stated that blue people with stars on their bellies would get mre opportunities, would you get a star if you were blue?

I don't think I know who Micheal Scoffield is but I do find it interesting that he is labeled a black man when really he mixed...I'm not sure if that's just to make it easier to label him or if it's b/c of some other reason. I really don't think it's right that any group whether their black, white, brown, red, or blue with stars should get more opportunities or better treatment and I certainly wouldn't get a star just for that reason.

I don't know that Michael is a mixed of black. It's not recognizable in his features. I though he is pure white Americand but I don't mind he still handsome for me.

Yes he is handsome. My question relates to the fact that if you could "pass" and get by better, would you?

I thinks those stars are just making the best of a situation. I'm mixed, but my skin is pretty fair for being half black. A lot of times people don't realize that I'm mixed. If I was given the opportunity to play a character and get as much money as these people do, I would jump on it too. It's just a job. It's like when you have a 25 year old playing a teenager in a movie or show.

Yes I guess so. So you are fair skinned too? Are you as fair as Michael is?

I'm fair like michael, but my eyes and hair are really dark colored. I also tan really easily, so in the summer it's a little easier to tell that I'm mixed with something.

His father is half African American, one quarter English. He said that "My father is black and my mother is white". But I think we should not categorize people with their color or race.

Have you ever heard of the "one drop rule"?
