Whether it's words like "handicap" or "lesser"...the result is the same. Mixed ethnicity can, logically, only be a handicap to racists.
Yes, that's true. However, racists still have power over people in a lot of places - whether it is through overt methods like beatings and Klan rallies, to more subtle approaches like not hiring or enrolling someone for being black. As such, being black or mixed can have detrimental effects in one's life. That's a handicap.

Almost any black person out there will tell you the same thing. Should it be so? No, of course not. Is it? Hell yes.
