I was thinking about when I was younger and I asked my parents what we were,you know racially and Dad told me American which was a nice way to say very mixed, my Husband's family is also mixed.
What do you even answer when it asks race and your white,american indian and hispanic(I know that it's an ethnicity not a race but you still have to pick if your hispanic non white or white non hispanic on forms)? I always answer other but it kind of seems like the cop out answer and DH just decided that checking white is the easiest with occasionally answering white non hispanic and hispanic non white just because it's non sensical.
Or you know when you want to know where your families are from and you have to give them a list of 15 different countries. Is there a better answer then my Father's we're American answer in that case?

I also say Mutt. When my son was in first grade, he was assigned a project to make a paper doll that represents his heritage. He's around 9 different ones, and I thought the assignment was incredibly stupid, so this is what we ended up with.
