I know that to get Native rights the tribes make you take a DNA test, but for schools I think multi racial people can pick either box they want. Remember untill just a few decades ago 1/8 black was black for legal reasons with the "seperate but equal" system. You are twice that much of your seond race. I'd say if you look dark with high cheek bones and thick hair you'll not get messed with too much. Just dont be one of those guys who's whitter than bleached paper and bragging about his nonwhite heritage. I see people doing that, it pisses everyone off.(especially if you do it on a casino) I am pretty sure that its your choice though since I have known mixed race people who mark either or as they chose.


I do identify with it culturally, and have somewhat strong ties to it through both sides of the family, but genetically I am only 1/4 NA. Should I still mark it? I did on my UG stuff.

You have absolutely no f*cking clue as to what you're talking about.  Please, STOP providing false and misleading information.  Just STOP.  You're becoming a menace.

The only thing I can do at this thread is to LOL. It's that or cry.

My advice for anyone reading: Listen to MBW.

I'm waiting patiently for JD2013's appeal to authority by claiming his great-grandmother was a Cherokee princess.

If he does that I'll personally kick his ass.

How ignorant do you have to be not to know this stuff? Look, I'm white as wonderbread but my wife and daughter(as I've mentioned before) have color due to their native hertiage. We looked into American Indian rights, thats how I know how that works. As for the 1/8th black thing, yeah dude they had a think on the history channel about segregation in the south and how 1/8th black kids got sent home called "n-word" by their teacher and classmates untill a court ruling said that "octo's" could be legally considered white and go to southern schools. If your too ignorant to believe that there was segregation and that it called itself "sepreate but equal" then phuck you too. Being offended dosnt change history.

Hilarious. WTF does "have color" mean? And "looking into" Native rights is no substitute for living and doing it every single day.

Yeah MBW, stop denying that people of color were treated unfairly in the past!
