There must be a lot of foreigners here because 12% of the posters here identify themselves as mixed race, while in the U.S census bureau only 2% of Americans identify themselves as mixed race.

You should get a job with the Census Bureau since we're all so inferior since we go by their definition of "races". You can educate them.

I'm black Hispanic. My ancestors originally came from somewhere in Western Africa at some point in time, but where transported as slaves to Cuba with the Spaniards. My family lived in Cuba until 1992, when the economic downturn as a result of the collapse of the Soviet Union was too much and they really had to choice but to leave. Both my parents and grandparents had to float over to Miami on a tiny raft... They all became US citizens between 1995 and 2000 and have been a part of the US workforce for 18 years. I was born in 1993 in the US.
