I am Mother to two beautiful boys; Igor William and Mikhail Isaac. I am Russian; born and raised for most of my life until migrating to the US some fourteen years ago. Their Father and my husband is Black (African-American). It's not a common mixture, to my knowledge, but we love it. We love them.

I am a white American and my husband is Saudi so my son is a Saudi / American.

I am from a REALLY small white town and I would never want to raise my son there but we're living in Saudi Arabia and so far it is fine. We have him in international school so a lot of kids are like him.

I am curious, In your mind, do you think "mix" as in races or "mix" as in tribes? I say this because the Indigenous people of Puerto Rico are the Taino Native's and The Olmecs are the oldest BLACK People in Mexico or USA (politically called United States America btw) so your husband is NOT African really but just Indigenous too. Teach your daughter she Indigenous instead of mix because thats DIVIDED one race people, people of color. That's why you have white and non white people.

I have a degree in anthropology and I work with high risk kids.



I just created a posting on IMBD for some of my teens who like a particular actor who is of multiethnic decent like they are.



Is is specifically on ethnicity and is pro ethnicity since these Kids already know about race. Some of the kids consider themselves BI Racial but are looking for other ways to express themselves due to bullying.



you might want to check it out.

First off, please let me state for the record that I am a 52 year old mixed woman. My mother is Caucasian and my father is mixed (his father was 1/2 white 1/2 black, and his mother was Native American Indian).



Race is not a determinable concept. There's no specific test to determine if you're white or black or anything else. You're whatever you want to be. Once upon a time there were all sorts of classifications based on how many "black" ancestors you had. That's all gone away, although you might run across the term "octoroon" in an old novel.



I would like to offer another answer if I may. The way the question was worded leads me to believe the person wanted to know what "RACE" is appropriate or recognized if the Father is black and the Mother is white. The question of race still appears on Birth Certificates, school entry's, college loan applications, school grants and the Census Bureau just to name a few so it is a very determinable factor. However the Standards of classifications are in the process of being revised with the public's help.



You cannot pick a "race", you are who you are. People of mixed heritage as mentioned in the Standards for classification as of 1989 were able to identify themselves by the race of the Mother. Before this date the race was determined by the Father.



Classifications of race in the US can prove to be very useful for certain individuals in many different instances. The information below comes from the offices at the Whitehouse. This is strictly a quote from the office of Management and Budget and Information and Regulatory Affairs. The title in case you are interested in further reading is called: "Standards for Classification of Federal Data on Race and Ethnicity"



"Since 1989, the National Center for Health Statistics has tabulated birth data according to the mother's race. The racial and ethnic categories set forth in the standard should not be interpreted as being primarily biological or genetic in reference. Race and ethnicity may be thought of in terms of social and cultural characteristics as well as ancestry. The category which most closely reflects the individuals recognition in his community should be used for purposes of reporting on persons who are of mixed racial and/or ethnic origins." There were four public hearings on this issue named Directive No, 15. in June of 1994.



This public issue remains unresolved at the moment and no changes have been documented at this time according to this briefing. It is appropriate to claim the race of the Mother or to go by how they are recognized in his or her community. Both are acceptable.
