I know about the "one drop rule," and I don't support it. I am a BW and my fiance is a WM. We think the one drop rule is ignorant and very old fashioned. So we are raising our kids as biracial...not black..not white. I don't care what society says, I want my kids to be proud of both sides. They should not have to choose a race and deny one parent just to please society.

Anyway, the point I'm trying to make is that we want to have biracial on the birth certificates of our children. We have never had kids and don't know how that works, but we plan on having them in 2 years or so...maybe sooner if God makes it happen. Do the parents tell the hospital what they want the kids to be listed as, or will they just put black and white down...or will they try the one drop rule and just say the kids are black??? Last time I checked it takes two people to make a baby, and I am not going to just say my kids are black because that would not be true. Anyway, please fill me in on how this works. If you only want to respond with negative comments, please don't waste your time. I just want serious replies only from people who are not here to say rude or racist comments. Be respectful! THX!

Your best bet is to contact your hospital, rather than trying to get this information from the "Offbeat Topix Forum".

In Arkansas, the baby would be the race of his/her mother and sister, which of course would be the same person.

Umm, so is a person from Memphis actually referred to as a Memphian? I woulda thought it was a Memphisian or maybe a Memphasite (although that sounds like a disease). I wanna know!

I was told its the race of the father. Which as my oldest sons father was from Spain... made my son spanish. However, I have native blood, and he qualifies for assistance (but his children won't).

By birth certificate is wrong, seeing as my own fathers' father, was black. So by those laws, this lil glow in the dark white girl, is black. Go figure!

So, I vote for Human Race. I hate that we have to *label* ourselves as a race/color. I mean really, my color (baby powder/ivory white) is not even in existence! And my race is VampyrePixie!

Best way to find out, is to call your local Hall of Records, they will have the answer for you.

She looked for the most intelligent people on topix to give her ideas! You should be flattered! Your answer was a good one! Obama would know, he checked it on the presidential campaign job application.
