 My granddaughter Mikayla had her birthday party yesterday and it was in a public place. I go in with my son Kevin (he is Hispanic/African American/white) and his GF is African American and of course we had the two kids with us. They ask us at the door what party we were with and we told her, "T" introduced us as Mikayla parents, brother and me, grandma. The girl looked at me like I had a a blue face and no clothes on. I thought it was just me and "T" said to me that she felt that the lady was a bit rude because of her attitude towards me when she introduced us. I laughed it off because I had gotten these looks all my boys life and will for the rest of their lives. In this day and time you would people wouldnt look at the persons skin color but who they were. SMH~~

Any of you that have Bi Racial children get "that look" when you go out with them?

I can not tell you the number of people who ask who his daddy is or if he is adopted....he is 17 now and he just tells everyone he was adopted and his real name is Ricky.

 I still get those looks and questions because of being a quarter filipino. I hate it, but I am proud of my filipino heritage! My and my kids eyes are all slanty like Asians are. W/E!  I'm sorry Dana!

I'm so sorry that in this day and age you have to deal with such ignorance. It's sad because it shows our children that there are still people in their world that are going to judge them or their family for stupid reasons that they probably don't even understand themselves, because its what they were taught.

My niece went through that with her kids. On the other hand, one of my best friends, although her kids are biracial, never did. Her girls may have darker skin and curlier hair, but their facial features are their mom's NO QUESTION. Her oldest daughter in particular has her mommy's rosy cheeks; she is gorgeous!

Latent genes! My oldest daughter Rachel has the lightest green eyes you've ever seen, and yet her dad has brown eyes and mine used to be brown but faded to greenish-brown/hazel over the years. I don't know where the light gray-green eyes came from. Rach also stayed blonde, while Tim's hair is dark brown and Hannah's hair is darkening, so she's likely to be a brown-eyed brunette by the time she hits her teens.

Quoting dana63:
