I’m not half white, still mixed.

I’ve had this debate a lot over the years, where usually white people, will tell me that I’m wrong to consider myself bi-racial, because I’m Black and Latina. It’s the craziest thing. Someone actually said to me that since White is the dominant race in the US, unless I’m half white, I can’t be bi-racial. I’m just a minority. I’ve had a hard time even finding a book about bi-racial people that included people that weren’t half white.
