Halsey is opening up about being biracial and “white-passing” all of their life.

While talking to Allure Magazine, the singer said, “A Lot of people try to write off a lot of my experiences because I present white.”

Halsey adds that they are fully aware of disadvantages and violence they would face if they didn’t pass as white.

They added, “No matter how many tears I’ve shed because I’m not connecting with my family or my culture in a way that I would like to, or because the waitress thinks I’m the babysitter when I go out with my family — none of that would compare to the tears that I would shed for presenting phenotypically Black and the disadvantages and the violence that I would face because of that.”

They also talked about their future child and said because they will be biracial, there will be struggles. “They’re going to grow up in this kind of multicultural home. And I have new challenges because of that.”
