  • Many forms now have a "multi-racial" box. I'd go with that.

  • In America, most people would mark black. Does it matter? Multiracial works. I always like to write in HUMAN when asked my child's race.

  • no it doesn't matter to me. people that don't know me and see him and his complexion are always so quick to say "is he mixed?" then i was told that his race is determined by what is dad is, so if his dad is mixed then i was wondering what he would be considered. but me personally naw i don't care.
