About Me

My photo
My name is Frances Rose Agnes Napper aka SmileyRose. I am a friendly and fun loving individual. I like meeting new/old friends. Although I love being with friends, I also enjoy my own space from time to time. I have a number of hobbies. I enjoy taking photographs, going to the theatre, travel (visiting new and exciting places), reading, films and listening to music. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I particularly enjoy it when we all get together. I was a full-time mother for both of my daughters and I did not go back to work until they both reached primary school age. The UK has a lot to offer because there are so many picturesque places to visit. I particularly enjoy the British countryside. My home town was in Stamford, Lincolnshire although I am currently living in Peterborough. My Father was a serving member of the RAF. I'd consider myself well travelled from a very early age (6 months old). Divorced - for 10yrs. Currently single. I am interested in meeting nice folk only. :) Star sign - Leo the Lion. Birthday -July 29th. That's me in a nutshell. :)

Skin Colour!

A person can still be brought up as white British no matter what  his/her skin colour is!  It is all a matter genetics. :)

Two white parents can give birth to a black child if there are black genes in either parents ancestry. The same baby could grow up with siblings who are white! It would not make the baby mixed race! The baby would still be brought up speaking the same language as his/her parents. The child would still grow up as being white British because he/she may/may not be aware of his/her ancestral history.

You could say the same about a child who was adopted. If a child from a different cultural background was adopted from an Asian country, by a white British family, he/she is not going to know his/her birth mother, unless he/she wished to trace his/her birth parents. Even then, he/she may not speak the same language as his/her birth parents if he/she was brought up by adopted parents, who happen to be white! That child would indeed still grow up to be white British, because they would not know any difference!

Also, parents who both have an Anglo (English) and a mixed background, are likely to bring their children up with a white upbringing if they are brough up in the UK, even if their skin colour is not white.

The colour of your skin does not determine your cultural background!  :)
