My son just asked me what color he is.

I asked him "what color do you think you are?"

He said, "red! Like lightning mc queen!"

Red it is! Lol!!

We don't discuss race much, he's always had a white mommy and a AA daddy. I wonder what it will be like for him in the future? Will most of our country be interracial? Maybe this is a divine plan, wheather you believe in God or a higher power. Maybe the mixing of cultures and genetics was meant to end the racial stereotyping in America.. thoughts?

My dd, if trying to help me figure out which person, will say light or dark. Dark may not be black. The first day of soccer practice, she was telling me names. There is a black (possibly bi racial, not sure) and a hispanic girl. She called them both dark and referred to one with curly hair and the other straight hair so I'd know which was which. If I say black, she says they're jot black, they're brown. She is pretty uneducated when it comes to race

My 7th grade social studies teacher told us that someday everyone would be tan. I think she's been shown to be right.

He's a really good looking boy, btw.

I would just be honest and explain that since he is darker than mommy and has daddy's last name (I am being presumptuous, I know.) That on paper he is considered black, but his actual color is beautiful shade of caramel that some people pay to try and get. Lol explain that most of the time they end up being orange like an oompa loompa :D

Quoting prissypoptart:

Thank you. I think he knows he's not the same color as mom or dad, idk how to approach this. Hes got the best of both worlds? I think, lightning mcqueen red is the best answer. Lol

I love his attitude and that you've taught him not to define himself by what color he is! He's absolutely gorgeous and I'm jealous of his eyelashes!
