I hope you read this dad if you happen to click on this website. My father is Creole and my mother is African American and a third of Native American. So I am a fourth of Indian, and half African American half Creole. I guess you can consider that multiracial or biracial. But I honestly don’t know I like saying what my races are but now I am 19 years old and the only race I’ve ever been accepted in is my African American side I’ve never met anyone on my Creole side I don’t even know how they look (creole people)The only picture I can see of a creole woman is myself it’s been hard growing up trying to figure out who I really am or what I really am. My father never told me anything about myself like what kind of Creole is he. And my mom never told me what kind of Indian I’m mixed of. I wish I knew more about my multiracial roots.
