A term used to describe mixed Americans (some of whom appear White, but may be of African, European, Native American or Asian mixture) whom choose to identify as Black Americans to honor their Black Slave ancestry.
Many appear as "exotic" individuals often mistaken for many different races. Many have tan complexions, Blue or grey/green /brown eyes, Black/Sandy/Blond/Red/ hair.
Considered in many parts of the world as exceptionally beautiful. Some CHOOSE to identify as Black instead of the cultural privileges associated with being identified as a White American. Many prefer to be known simply as MIXED.
