This one I find particularly interesting...I think it's what often ends up happening. Parents don't teach their kids to embrace both their "sides" and the world picks as they see fit.
Haha, I love The Boondocks.
The school district I work in also keeps students' race information on file. I'm not sure why it is necessary! Only the child's age and sex really are important to know.

Wonder if I've weighed in here? Hmmm. Well since my opinion changes daily, I'll give it a go.

I use to say no. I'm just black. Because my teasers were black. Then I WISHED I was black/white mixed. (STFU don't judge me. I was a KID!) Then I went through my whole black power phase. All African, baby.

But I'm part Native American. Not sure if there is European in the mix, but there was a known Native American relative.

So a thought occurred.

WTF? So she's not important because people say you're not mixed if it's not direct? 1st generation as the saying goes?

And I changed.

People always ask what I "am". They say Asian. Use to bug the FU*K out of me!

But I'm an adult now... And I'm not 100% African. Is 100% African bad? Of course not. Is mixed better? No. It's not.

But it's not wrong to acknowledge your heritage.

So, yes. I'm mixed. African, Native American, and what may be.

See, this is how i feel. I too am part Native American and part Caucasian even tho it was a few generations back. I feel some type of way just saying im just black when i know my great great grandmother was Cheerokee Indian, full blooded at that. She'd be sad if i didn't acknowledge that she's part of the reason im here.

But at the same time, i don't want to put myself out there like im better than anybody bc i, in a sense, do have mixed heritage. So i just say, for the most part i am Black.

I disagree, mixed doesn't have to mean that you're black and white. It means that you have more than one ethnicity. So if your mom is Irish and your dad is Italian, then you're mixed.

Also, it's so annoying if people ask you, "what are you?" That's so rude. Ehm, I'm a girl?
