How many of you have mixed children? Or are you yourself mix with another race? What do you mark off on paperwork?

  • I am Caucasian and my husband is puerto rican, born and raised in the US....so yeah, we're going to have a mixed child. We already live in a stereotypical world where people ask him straight out if he's mexican...or does he speak 'mexican'...so i am a little apprehensive about everything.

    I'm not sure what we're going to put on the paperwork come January...I noticed on the census this year that Hispanic is no longer considered a 'race' so we had to mark my husband as white/Caucasian, which was odd

  • my son is biracial...so we mark the black box and the white box, or maybe the box that says other then both of the other ones.

  • my husband is mexican and guatamalen. im Caucasian . so when i had to fill out the census it was a little bit confusing. i had to put mexican and guatamalen for hubby, white for me and all three for both kids.
    sometimes the paper work doesnt have anything for my kids race. so i put white and other and then write what it is. good luck

  • Technically he is,but its only a quarter Mexican. I don't know if they even consider that "mixed". My son looks totally white,blond hair,blue eyes

  • My kids are mixed, I am caucasion and my husband is Iraqi and he marks off caucasion on his papers, so that's what I do with the kids too
