This form doesn’t have my box

Justin Castro.

I’m multi-racial and growing up, there was never an option for more than one race. My mother is white, my biological father is black, and the father that adopted and raised me was a Mexican immigrant. So biologically I’m half white/half black. Legally, I’m the son of a Hispanic. And visually, everyone has always assumed I’m white, because that is how I appear.
