“Mark the ethnicity that applies to you”
Who ever created that question on the application?
Is it ever that easy?
With the amount of diversity in the world, are we ever just one complete race?
It is great to embrace our cultures as a whole. When I was pregnant with my first, I don’t know if it was hormones or just the plight of the unknown. I was concerned about this question.
What box would they check and would they have issues?
Even though I am mixed, I am and appear to be African American(I am very proud of my heritage). So it was easy, though a couple times I did check other. My kids appear to be Caucasian, but they aren’t completely Caucasian. Somewhere between the unchecked boxes and the senseless worrying you realize it’s not the answer or the color of their skin that matters.
It never was about the box.
Its seeing your kids grow, learn, and smile.
It’s knowing that your kids are healthy and that if they are ever haunted by the fear of checking the box that you are there to help them figure it out.
