Does biracial mean black or white?
Parents refuse to complete forms that do not include their daughter's mixed-race heritage
By Art McFarland
If you are biracial, are you black or white? The parents of a five-year-old from Staten Island are being asked to make that decision and they don't like having to make a choice.
The school community at P.S. 13 is confronted by the determination of whether or not race should be considered in evaluating the performance of a student or a school. This is especially true of that biracial couple. They have been ordered to complete official forms that do not take into account their daughter's mixed-race heritage.
