Mixed People

Black and White Mixed People. I saw the title of this post as hubby was working on it and my response was, "What the heck is that supposed to mean?" The post discusses somewhat the changing attitudes in America towards definitions of race with regards to people of (recently) mixed race.

People like to talk about the one drop rule as the main factor in how race is assigned to individuals. I am of the opinion the that the one drop rule is more important to certain select segments of the American community than it is to the majority of America. I'm willing to bet that a lot of the people reading this post right now don't know what the one drop rule is and would find it to be nonsensical once they learned what it was.
