HI.I am a single mommy. My daughter is 20 months. I am am American with a mix of other backgrounds, I call myself the mutt. My daughter is dark skinned. The only problems I have had so far are other dark skinned older women making remarks about me nursing her.
I understand the nursing thing. When my dd was tiny, a horrified woman asked me was that my child that I was nursing. My dd is pretty fair and I am more of a caramel color. I politely told the lady that no, she wasn't mine and I just came to the daycare to nurse random children. She laughed awkwardly and said something to the effect of, I didn't know she was Black. Gee, she didn't tell you?
My dd is a host of things, but for the most part, our family identifies itself as Black.
