Inspired by the interracial dating thread, I though that I would start a thread for those of us who are products of interracial marriages. How many of us are there? 1.)What ethnicity is your dad? What is ethnicity is your mom? 2.) How old are you? 3.) What was it like growing up? I'll begin: 1.) My dad is Filipino, my mom is American Indian/French/Chilean 2.) 36 3.) My mom's side of the family always referred to us as "Filipino" and my dad's side always referred to us as "American"; my Filipino relatives were much more accepting of us, so I have always loved that side of my family more, BUT they also always made me feel different. My grandmother would never speak tagolog to me and they always loved to make fun of my height (I'm almost 5'9") In school, I hung out with all of the other kids who didn't quite fit into any single category: the Persian mod, the Filipina skater chick, the irish-latino gay surfer. It wasn't until later that I began to appreciate never fitting into one pat category.
