"Daddy, am I white?
My two sons are biracial, my sife is a Fijian Islander (Melanesian), and I am European (White). My oldest son, 7 years, is light in color, and my youngest son is much darker, both were born in Fiji and spent the first 5 years there.
We had been in the U.S. for about 18 mos. when last week my son came home from school and asked me "Daddy, am I white?" I was floored, and did not know what to say, except to explain that like him our new President had one parent who was black and one parent that was white, that it did not matter what a person's color was, but what was in their hearts. Can you help me with a little bit better explanation?
