YesMy father is black and my mother is white. When I was little, I sounded "white" and looked "black". Kids on the playground would ask me to choose a side-- black or white. I couldn't be both. I never picked one side. Instead, I remained silent and confused.
To this day, I cannot fathom that some feel the need to define others by phenotype.
