The overwhelming majority of people, especially in Western societies, are mutts, even if they "appear" very white or very black.

Never posted in any of these cyclical threads, but felt like doing so this time...

WTF is "mixed-race"?

Do you realize every single guy on Earth is "mixed-race" to some extent?

When does a player "stop" being white and becomes "black" or some other delightful color?

You know, just when I thought I finally understood this race-thing mess -"just look at the color of the skin, they said"- I discover blue-eyed Jason Kidd is black -and my brother here, being dark-eyed, dark-haired and natural-tanned is as white as the princess of Norway or myself.

I wonder how blind people feel about this nonsense.

Jordan Farmer is Jewish, and as such I suppose he doesn't fit into the two-tone perception of society some people have. He's neither white nor black.

Yeah, but those are more distant mixed ancestors. The players listed on the first post have parents who are two different races. They're really really mixed.

Wikipedia states that Lopez twins are half Cuban since their dad is Cuban, but mom is American. Don't know how true that is.
