We are all really biracial, triracial, multiracial humans as well as no race. Since we come from many many ancestors who were all different and from different places, we all can be considered multiracial. Also, race is a made up definition so everyone is of no race as it is created by ourselves. Race is created by the society that you live in and are a part of. So a single person, could be of different race in different societies. An example is my family. Most people in our society here in Gainesville/ America, I would be completely White, even though my family is from Spain and we are Catalan in a Spanish society and thus a different group from that of the Spanish and Basque. One person or family, two societies, two different race/categorization yet all human.

  2. This came up in my sociology class. There are very few people that can really call themselves pure anything nowadays. Multiracial and ethnic blending is more common and I think if people were to really look at their lineage they’d be surprised just how diverse they are and be less close minded.
