Am I Black Or White?

Throughout history children of mixed races have had more trouble than others when it came to figuring out where they fit into society. They've also struggled with figuring out what race to claim. At one point in time people who were mixed with African American blood tried to pass as white (or another race) because they were ashamed. However, lately it has come to my attention that many people, even if they have no hint of African American blood in them, love to claim that they are part African American.

It's actually easy to spot a mixed person. No matter how light their complexion, most of the time an African American does not have to say anything to prove their race.

However, what does a blond haired blue eyed white complexioned child do to prove that they are in fact black?

I'm sure that child is going experience many times where people are going to assume she was adopted.
