    I am 1/8th Indian and have high cheek bones and tan skin to show for it I believe but most call me white. I am 1/2 German and the rest is a huge mixture of everything. Why do I get the stereotype of “White” and all the baggage and hatred that comes along with that? I’m not sure why we aren’t able to all be treated like individuals instead of grouped into some racist class to be rewarded or punished depending on the perceived race. I like what the Bible says, “Do not show favoritism”. “The rich and the poor have this in common, the Lord is the maker of them both.”

      …IMO…you are mixed… Native American and German. Many people are. There are plenty of Whites who have a predominance of European Blood who live as Native American on Reservations.

    ..a mutt is a dog..is that what you really are?…I have English and Irish in my relatively recent past..my great Grandfathers. I am fairly dark skinned, kind of medium Brown. Most of my family looks like me because both my great Grandmothers were fair skinned and Married Very Dark men. So on the extreme ends of our spectrum, we have very dark skinned people and very light skinned ones. My Father was slightly lighter than me and my mother slightly darker, yet they had a fourth child my baby sister who was tan colored. That’s genetics. A “throwback” can happen at any time, especially in families that have three or more kids!
