You must check only one race.

In New Orleans, my children are told by teachers to check one box for race since there is no multi-racial box to check on school and standardized school forms. The teacher will tell my sons what to check based on which race s/he feels is closest to our sons’ appearance. This is very confusing for our children and makes them choose which race (mine or my husband’s) that they prefer to be known as.
