If you are "half" of something, which do you identify with?
Today I was asked if I was “mixed”.
Obviously most Americans identify “mixed” with being half black, half white. However, I’m half “white” and half American Indian.
If you are half of something, which half do you identify yourself?
How do you know what to choose in a job application, census form, etc?
Do people just get to “choose” which half they want to be.. and stick with it?
(Sorry for all of the questions. ‘Just very curious!)
