    Here it goes:
    Me: Dang girl, you are so pretty…and look at them curls. I am dying to see what your parents look like!
    Mixed girl: Okay. So, like my mom is Cherokee, Scotch Irish and Black. And uh, my dad is like Black and Chinese. But he’s only one fourth Chinese so that makes me like 1 part Scotch Irish and 2 parts Black and one part cherokee…with a splash of Chinese…bla bla bla bla bla.
    Done.

      Mixed girl: What are you?
      Me: I use to drive a Japanese car. Now I drive a Jeep Grand Cherokee. My daddy just bought a German car and my mommy drive an Italian car. But the police pulled me over because I look like a black guy driving a new car that might be stolen.

      I know a guy who was told his mercedes wasnt his. It had his last name on the plates. Smh.

      The police arrested me claiming my commercial drivers license (CDL) was suspended. Keep in mind, I never had a CDL and I was driving a small Toyota.

    Yeah, I wait till they tell me or it very naturally comes up in convo. If you’re not a census taker, why is it such important info that anyone so desperately needs to know?

    You don’t. It’s rude, especially if it’s someone you don’t know very well. If you’re friends with someone, as time passes, it will usually come up in casual conversation. If you aren’t friends with someone, well it’s not really any of your business, is it?
