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

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
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 agree.  People just want to label everything and everyone.  Just let your kids be a kid.  Leave out the color of their skin, their ethnic background or if they have a disability.  Let them be known for who they are.

If you hadn't posted as an anon, I'd be more specific, but here ya go....    I don't play the "game" - but people ask all the time "what" my child is - and yes, they use "what".

I don't understand where this is coming from. Is this just on the site or in person? My daughter is mixed but i never throw it out there. I'm sure when they see my husband they figure it out for themselves. That would annoy me. I've never witnessed it though.
