  •  I have two biracial children. (7+ / 0-)

    They made their own choices about how they would identify themselves, not the same choice either. That is, in our society which cares so much about labels, as it should be. I don't stop being their mother and their father doesn't stop being their father, both heritages respected, but that doesn't mean they should'nt have the right to identify themelves among the available choices, or another, as they choose.

     The days are long gone when my father, half European and half Native American, per family lore, had to move to California, where nobody knew him, and pretend to be Italian, something the look he got seemed to allow, in order to move forward from the place where his brother was invited to move away from the same home town, by a sheriff with a shotgun. His response to that which we were allowed to hear was that the problem with that is that then he had to pretend to love lasagna.
