Not necessarily. Let's say a Eurasian [white/Asian] and a Mulatto [black/white] have a kid. The kid will be tri-racial [white/black/Asian]. Bi-racial parents, and tri-racial kid.

You could be a black Dominican. Being Dominican don't make you bi-racial.

Yes, I agree. I have to admit this argument that all african americans are just as mixed as mulatto's is rubbish. Having a great great grandparent who is white or cherokee is not the same as being directly mulatto or having two parents who are half black & white.
all of my great great grandparents were half white (either english, french, or spanish). My parents to this day still look biracial and i look biracial. With biracial being:

I still look drastically different from AAs who don't have significant mixture though, because guess what we're mixed. My dad has an awful identity crisis though.:(

the majority of african americans dont look mixed to me. and for the person saying africans call half castes whites its not true.. we just call them mullatos or half castes. In any case you hear an african calling a half caste white its when the person is know to have a white father, because in community you are what your father is. So yoi would hear someone say something like the " italian kid" or the kid with german dad. So it depends with the context used.

I highly doubt that you have seen the majority of African Americans and ADMIXED people don't always have to be light complexion with curly hair either. Regardless of what you have seen 85% of African Americans have white blood running thru their veins. We come in all different colors and hair textures. Folks can be dark skin and still have a white grandmother. There was/is a great deal of race mixing in america. People may put AA down but their is ALWAYS a white chick chasing after a black man or a white man drooling over a big bounty nice figured black women Always

Both my wife and I have black mothers and white fathers. I first child was born 4 months ago and is the most beautiful girl in the world. Not just saying that as a proud dad. In public we are bombarded by people saying how pretty she is. At this point she even thinks her name is "pretty" and responds to it. Her skin is very fair, pretty much white, light brown eyes, tons of loose curly hair. Though she has more white features as far as lips and nose, she does have the well defined cheekbones of blacks and great glow that you usually see in black babies. But regardless of racial back ground she is beautiful and daddy's girl. We choose white for her race because we live in the south and has a better chance her in south Carolina as a white woman than black.

Having two mixed parents isn't bad because you don't get to choose sides while others force you to. But in my case since my mom is Filipino/White and my dad Filipino/Chinese/Spanish, they want me to marry Asians or Latinos because they were raised in the Philippines all their lives.

My older sister is married to a a mixed race man and she is also mixed race herslef with both of them being half black and white. I am wondering if anybody here is a product of two biracial parents like my neice and nephew and what do you consider yourself. They are what you call second generation Biracial or multigenerational biracial like alot of hispanics and creoles.
I am. And what you call that is just biracial like any other biracial girl or boy but your parents just happen to be biracial as well.

I kinda disagree. Biracial is referring to two back grounds. Both my parents are biracial but from two different back grounds from 4 different parts of the world. Despite people calling me black, my culture is as mixed as I am. Caribbean Mediterranean Irish and African, all of which are very strong culturally. So for me to simply refer to myself as black would be an insult to three cultures that enrich my life. For me its not a question of what I am, more of who I am. I'm very in touch with who I am and the heritage I was born into. And to top it off my girlfriend is biracial also Italian and Chinese. So I don't see my self as black or Mediterranean. I am just me.

I am considered biracial but most people assume I am black before they meet me. I get uncomfortable and frustrated with people. I could have two biracial parents. I am told I am mixed Hispanic. I am a bit dark and my complexion has always bothered me. I try to use skin lightening lotion to help my complexion but my dad and I fight over my usage of it. I used to cry because I get spoken to like an African-American all the time. My hair grows long and they would assume it's weave. I just hope one day I can accept my skin and my hair.

That goes both ways then. You're just as much black as you are white. So then you can label yourself as white just like you label yourself as black. Double whammy.

Yeah they look like theirr parents, which is like alicia keys complexion, they look like typical mixed kids.
I have friends that are biracial. They consider themselves the race they identify with the most. One is Italian/African her father is 100% Italian and her mother is 100% African. She consider herself black. Her siblings considered themselves white and that was the group of people they hung out with.

If your grandparents where mix then your black.

-My mother is black/german/english
-And my father is black/italian
-which means i'm also biraical.

My mom dont have black features. She had golden blonde with green eyes. My father look more hispanic with his dark eyes and hair. So you know if the have children, theres no where in hell the kids are going to look black. But I consider myself black others consider me biracial.
Not true. This is science. It all comes down to dominant and recessive genes and how they are expressed. Genotype and phenotype. As much as we all like to think it's some great mystery a simple trip to the library's biology section would do y'all a world of good. All comes down to personal choice as I can call myself Thumbelina if I do choose. A person with mixed ancestry may identify more strongly with one culture vs another. Or in my case my father was absent and was of Black/Italian/Puerto Rican or some sort of Hispanic descent. We never knew 100% because his mother died when he was 7 and her family disowned her for marrying a black man in the 1950s. So enter my mother whose mother was from Barbados and had a Black mother (who may or May well have had European blood in her knowing the rich slave history of the island, but I digress. And my grandmothers father was a fisherman from Cuba which is why he was around to begin with and they made 4 children back in the 1930s. Guess what everyone considered them then.. YOU guessed it BLACK!! My mothers father was half black half Swedish or some Norwegian ancestry and we don't really know them because HIS mother disowned him when he married and had 3 children with my grandmother in the 50s and 60s ultimately leading to their divorce. Guess what they're children were considered.. I'll wait..... black. This biracial multi racial movement is all relatively new. Until the last 30-40 years people were DISOWNED for interracial marriages and worse. This is a large reason a huge portion of mixed race children call themselves black only. It is what they can IDENTIFY with. Historically the black families were more receptive to these unions than the other races which is why I feel speaking from experience that some of us feel compelled to say we are black. That is the culture we identify with, has accepted us, and that we feel most comfortable around. Not JUST because of that good ole one drop rule. When I was younger I loved telling people about my diverse background until I realized the underlying insult to the question "What are you?" It's saying that I MUST have some other kin because there's no way I can JUST be black with my complexion, features and hair grade. As if there are no cramel colored, curly haired black women with thin features in Africa. LIES. What are you? I am a Black woman with a mixed and diverse background. How tiring it is explaining oneself to strangers all the time. I'm black Bajan, Cuban, Swedish, African American, Italian, and Puerto Rican. Though Cubans, Puerto Rican's, and Italians alllll have history of when where and how their populations were injected with other races' genes whether through rape or genocide or natural assimilation. Most races today can say the same. Why are we so focused on race? We're all gonna be one mixed up ass race across the globe sooner than we think. Race, flags, things like this people have pride over cause division. Separates us. Focus on love, the tie that ALWAYS binds.
