But this issue of 'determining what race you are' - is so offensive to me. My sons are mixed - they're white and native american . . . they can choose to embrace whatever they want - or nothing at all. It's not for anyone else to decide because it's their life and no one else's. One 'looks' more native american and the other doesn't . . . so this whole 'mixed race - what are you and under what criteria - let's all decide for you' is so pathetic and offensive.
We're so obcessed with rigid broad definitions of race in this nation - it's archaic and immature. To consider my sons who are of the same two parents to be remotely different races is laughable.
