Filling out Leilah's Kindergarten registration packet and it says, Ethinic group - please select one... Really?! She's a mutt lol! There was no "mixed" or "other" option so I selected all three. If they have a problem, then they should add other options. :)

She needs to identify with one or two races. She's gonna be confused later on about what exactly to indentify as on her paperwork.

Use the two ethnicities that have the highest percentages.

Why not all three? There's nothing confusing about it, it's who she is.

Here in London they have a ton of options! Even a simple mixed one but they also have all the different mix variations.

I feel u 100% there should b a mixed option or at least make options that say black & white hispanic & white n so on. There r too many different races in the world to just pick one. I have had to change my sons multiple times on alot of paperwork cuz ppl r dumb. They labeled him as white n then labeled him black. The last time I went in I asked do I look like I'm black n asked if his father looked white. They said no ma'am. I get kinda ignorant for them to make his black n white not just one

Exactly. You are what you are. There's no changing that.
