he looks black. he identifies with black. i call him black.
though i agree, dark beige seems more accurate a hue.
i respect that people like to include all of their racial make-ups in how they describe themselves. but if at face value, you don't appear to be anything other than a prodimant race, that's the race i'll be thinking of when i see you.
i was recently watching a documentary about being black in america and saw a clip about a black woman, her white husband, and their biracial son. now, their son at face value did not look remotely black to me. he didn't look like a light skinned black person. he looked mediterranean/greek, from hair to facial features. i didn't see mama in any part of his face. and if most people passed him on the street, i'd imagine that they'd think he was a foreigner, as he also didn't have a "white" look to his face either.
