When you look at biracial celebrities like Halle Berry, Tiger Woods, Alicia Keys, and even President Obama what do you see? Most people automatically associate their appearance with their African American background. Even I do it. Why? It's because of their facial features and their skin tone. It's also because that is our perception in this American society.

But the question still lingers, who do they identify with? That varies from person to person. I spoke to Alpha Boy about this and he says he identifies with both sides of his racial mix. Alpha Boy's friends reflect that. He spends a lot of time with kids of different racial background. He plays sports with several black and white teammates. He hangs out with anyone that he gets along with. I asked him if he sees himself as being white or black. He answered that he sees himself as both.

I know that there are more and more biracial kids in this country. Some will choose one race or the other and some will identify with both of them. It's up to them and what ever makes them comfortable. As I watched the Inauguration 2009 coverage on the news, I noticed President Obama was singing to the R & B and Rock. And that's when I got a yahoo message, ?he knows rock, must be from his white family.' I laughed, because I know the words to the song he was singing along to. I know my African American father introduced me to Rock and R & B, so it's hard for me to know if his family was similar to mine.

I'm curious, which race do you associate biracial people with?
