To me the term "mixed" does imply a racial mix, but more importantly that an individual was raised in a household with two or more different cultures. To me there is a huge difference between someone who can trace mixed heritage back a few generations and someone whose parents are of two or more different races.[/quote]
ITA. My father was born in India.
If I have children, they will be 1/4 Indian, but they won't be INDIAN. You know? I've never been to India. I would hardly think of them being "mixed race." I am Indian by ancestry, and my father and grandparents are part of the Indian culture, which I understand and have been affected by, but ultimately I am American.
I am maybe a drop French, a drop German, but I hardly claim that. I always wondered why people who are 1/16 "Insert Race, Indian Tribe" claimed that.
I am not trying to be nasty. If anyone wants to respond to this, it's fine, but remember I am not being mean!
