That is very arbitrary - They seem to be not able to win - Say mixed and they are betraying their race - Say black and they are a fraud0

I have mixed race family members and friends and the one thing I've come to understand is that, you are allowed to call yourself or refer to yourself as whatever you want. The world will constantly try to define who it is THEY think you are, but for you personally, you are who you want to be or be referred to as and its your right to ask that others call you by that if you're so inclined. Race is still a very difficult and complex issue in the US and globally. We live in a time where there are more mixed race families than ever, and people still dealing with one drop rules, and people not considering mixed race people as the two races. In the long run, its not disrespectful. I'm sure families have talked about it for forever and a day, and to me, let them define themselves.0
