who cares biracial are seen as white in Haiti or Africa doesnÂ’t mean there just white.

and another thing why are people acting like biracial people are some sort of thing you see everyday you rarely see any.

not important???????...government couldn't operate without knowing the number of negros and where they live.
btw, if you don't know if you're a negro or not.........get a mirror and take a look at yourself.
You realize, of course that interracial marriages are on the rise. That means that race, eventually, really WON'T be a factor. Who knows, maybe your kids or grandkids will intermarry. Then what do you do; disown the children? Face it, things are changing. It's entropy. Eventually we'll all be on equal ground.

but you want them to be identified as biracial right?
I want them identified as men,color should not make any difference. But,that said, color is part of who they are, it's what the world persieves of them. Their color is just that,color,has nothing to do with their work ethic,their character,they morals etc. I want them to be happy, not unhappy because because of the ignorance of racism. They are what they are and they will deal with what they've been dealt, with grace. They are loved by their family and friends and will succeed in life because of who they are,not their color.

so you want them to be men of color, yet succeed in life because of who they are,not their color?

It doesn't matter what I want at all, they are biracial men. I just want them happy and to succeed in life. All I meant was that color shouldn't matter a bit. They are who they are, I am proud of who they are. I raised them and I am happy the way they are.I believe they are happy they way they are, this is getting confusing at this point. I really only wanted to say color is just color, it doesn't define who they are.
