What makes someone black?
My sd, the one who is 16, had some friends this weekend and one of them made a joke about the only black thing about her was her nail polish. The friend was black and sd and her other friend are white. So the black friend told sd that the only black thing about sd was her nail polish. Sd told black friend she was as black as her since her mom was black and her dad white like this girl (white mom, black dad). Sd said she was a black girl trapped in a white body. They played around some more and then left for the movies. I asked dh about it and what he considers sd's race. He said white because she looks white. Sd is actually 25% black. Dad is white and mom is half white/half black. I'm curious as to what sds race actually is. She is white skinned with brown hair and brown eyes. I would say she is white but she says to people she is black and then explains her mom is black. Her mom married a black man and her siblings are black. She lives with us 50%. Bm and dh always check white on forms because there is no white/black spot.
