You shouldnt worry about what you look like. Its whats inside you that counts.

Well, you definiteley have some african but also european mixture.
I personally would NOT call you "black". But out in this sick and full of hate world there are many people who would do.
if i were you i would identify as what i am...a human at first, then as a girl and then as a girl of mixed (european-african) backround. In the end we are all mixed and never feel bad because of your heritage;) It would be sad to think of yourself you are not the same good as others because you have african ancestry..dont let the view of racism and sick people make up your mind.

Actually, I think you look mixed--like me
...I'm a racially mixed Latina immigrant to the USA from Central America and until got here, that's all I was, but occasionally, there are people who I'll meet that will think or say that I look black, exclusively.
I don't consider myself to be black, despite my racial mix...I come from a Latin-Caribbean upbringing and culture, so why would I see myself as black exclusively?...Yet, there are those who see me differently.
It's all about perceptions and limited exposure to other races and cultures. Do you think I look black? http://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h135/exotiq... :) lol ...That's okay if you do, but if you don't, it's just another example of how different people will have different perceptions.
..What really matters in the end is the truth.:)
