I'm black, my DH is black, and our children are black

Yea, it sounds just as pointless and stupid when you mothers of bi-racial/multi-racial children do it.

Why the hell do parents of mixed kids feel the need to constantly display their children as if they are in possession of some rare life form? Who the hell cares that you have mixed kids?! Why must we play "guess which race my kid is" games with you?! Why must the first words that come out your mouth when someone compliments your kid be "thanks, she's mixed with..."

When someone compliments my child, I don't respond with "thanks! She's black! "

We get it, you have mixed children... No one cares.

I have a degree in social work. I remember once my professor was sharing a story about a client (child) who was black... a student specifically asked my professor why she felt the need  to say that he was black.........

My kid is mixed by but most people don't realize it.  Doesn't bother me. She is a beauty no matter.

If you care, though, I'm white, my husband is white, our daughter is white, but our dog is totally black. How in the hell...someone has some serious explaining to do!
