White mom of bi-racial child forgotten.

Peggy Person

I have always been so disappointed in “America”, for labeling bi-racial, or mixed race children as one race or the other. I am a white woman, who has had to listen to society brainwash my child into believing that he can be accepted as “anything but white”. I raised him to believe that we are all equal, and then even our president took the title as “black president”, trying to nullify the fact that he is not really black, but bi-racial. Why am I, as the mother who gave birth to this child, and raised him, forgotten, and erased from his identity?
