my son is 6, he is bi-racial, looking more white than his bi racial father. should i be trying to buy him black action figures, or teach him about black history. he understands that i am white and my hubby is black. i am constantly harrassed by people telling me that my son is "too white" to be my hubbys biologically. this has created a whole sort of stress for me and my hubby, even causing some friends to part ways, because they think I cheated. for the record both of my children are this way and look similar and my hubby is their father, being the only man i've slept with is the only possible father.Answer Question
i am constantly harrassed by people telling me that my son is "too white" to be my hubbys biologically.<,-- I'm sorry you are meeting up with ignorant , insensitive people who would say something like that. Ignore them or tell them to take a class in biology and genetics.

We are white and I teach my kids black history and they had a black baby doll, Spanish, Chinese. We teach people are people some are black, some are white and so on. They don't know racism exists yet, but I am confident when they hear a racist remark when they are older they will be dumbfounded, come home and ask me what that was all about and I will tell them that some people judge others based on their outward appearance and we do not do that in our family.
I've done this already with fat people, handicapped people and so on . ( I am not being politically correct here, but that's just out of laziness and not disrespect, but I trust ya'll know where I'm coming from) So what I'm saying no matter what race one is I think it's a good idea to teach we all bleed red, and buy what ever toys you like, black , white, Asia action figures, and the bonus for the kiddos is they get more toys!!!! YEAY!!!Good luck with everything
p.s. I really hate this 1000 character limit lol
