    Nice to meet you too ... Just show the paperwork when people ask you what you are:


    ... public records that Eva Beatrice Dykes is my 1st cousin 5x removed.

    ... I got a notification from Ancestry's 'We're Related' app, and that notification said: ...

    angelfrommynightmare. Welcome to the playground.
    Is it important for you to prove your ancestry to others? Or, is it good enough to know who you are? People will believe what people will believe...and accept what they choose to accept. And there will always be those who will challenge anything you have to say. If it is your mission to meet each challenge, you will live a miserable existence. KNOW THY SELF...and LET others LIVE the lie they choose to live. Beyond that, be happy.

    If you look hard enough, you'll find that mixed-race people includes everyone on the planet.

    i think you would be most likely to get help from other multi racial people.

    High Angle. Good to meet you.
    I agree with you that biracial people are discriminated against.
    If I was biracial I would identify as biracial. Who says you have to choose a side. Embrace all of you, and don't concern yourself with what other people think about you, please.

    When you’re honest about who you are, and you’ve got choices, let those who have a problem with your choices, deal with their opinion.

    Nice to meet you.
