I've always been confused by this question. Some say yes and some say no. So can anyone help clarify?

To me mixed means you have parents from two different ethnicities.
If that's you in your profile pic I would think you were mixed. But if I knew what you were, I'd just say your lighter skinned.
People ask me what I'm mixed with a lot when they don't believe I'm African. My grandfather was half Caucasian abd I have some on my dad's side too. I typically just say I'm just lighter.0

By that standard the average American 'black' is mixed since about 30% of the genes of self described 'black' Americans are European (5% are native American). About 5% of 'white' Americans have at least some sub-Saharan African genes for about about.05% of the 'white' gene pool overall.0
