Well your dad's not very educated on dna.
You are everything they are, yes you are black, but you are also white and lumbee Indian.
You have that illness from your white decent.
So there's no denying your of mixed backgrounds.
You should acknowledge the part or parts you feel best about. Not what your dad wants or what you look like or what society labels you as.
I'm Mexican and italian. But I'm always referred to and usually mistaken for white or just italian. But I say and insist I'm mexican. Born in America and I choose mexican overall because I speak Spanish I have that blood in my veins I enjoy the culture. However. I don't deny that I am a American citizen and have never been in Mexico itself. Nor that there is no Italian in me. Do what makes you comfortable your young you have have a long time to figure that out.
At the end the race you identify yourself shouldn't matter.
But I hope you illness gets better or doesn't worse. Best of luck1
