You can’t help who you fall in love with and this American girl fell in love with an African boy. So that makes our son African American. Here’s the catch that a lot of people have an issue with… He’s white. He has blonde hair and blue green eyes and is the reason I have taken out stock in sun screen. For all who claim Africa what country is it that you are claiming? My Husband and son are proud to be South African and they shouldn’t have to deny their roots that are still deep in both South Africa and the States because it upsets the few who claim a continent full of countries.
