I love reading the dialogue here ladies. When people see me they mostly think im african American, which I identify but when someone get so know me they realize I'm very mixed up. But as far as my son, we get all kinds of comments, he got several of my Ethiopian features but doused with my husbands mostly German background..... He's a little blondie. Anyway, I do try to assume people are coming from a good place when they ask questions. I also am a very curious person too and I am always asking people what they are mixed with. I don't just walk up to a stranger but if I am in line at the grocery store or something and I'm curious , I ask.
