  • Darn it.......why does everyone throw around...BLACK AND WHITE...why cant we just call the Baby a person. We all say were not racist...and where all UNITED...so then there IS NO BLACK THERE IS NO WHITE...AND THE WORLD WILL NEVER WORK...when those terms are used....people are PEOPLE...not colors.
  • It's a caramel colored baby.
  • The baby is considered a baby.
  • For your answer, look to your current president. Like it or not, that's how it is.
  • The baby is mulatto. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mulatto Why is this answer getting so many DR's? It's not necessary to agree but WTF? If wikipedia said 9/11 was planned and perpetrated by George Bush and Dick Cheney you nut jobs would be falling all over yourselves to praise the article. I reference documented scientific fact and I'm wrong, wikipedia is wrong, and thousands of contributors to the site are wrong. You people are ignorant racist looking to sedate your own guilt.
  • He/she is a biracial child who is free to choose their own identity and make their own cultural lifestyle decisions when they are old enough to do so.
  • The baby is just considered a baby. If one wants to label it, I guess it would be bi-racial. For the simpletons, it would be labeled whatever it looks like.
  • For the racist POV, please see the following (from Wikipedia): The One Drop Rule The one-drop rule is a historical colloquial term in the United States that holds that a person with any trace of African ancestry is considered black (unless having an alternative non-white ancestry which he or she can claim, such as Native American, Asian, Arab, or Australian aboriginal).[1] It developed most strongly out of the binary culture of long years of institutionalized slavery.
  • It depends on who is doing the considering. If you belong to the KKK or the Aryan Nations Pimply-Faced White Boys organization, then anyone with a sun tan or darker is a black. But the bottom line is WHO CARES?
  • That depends if it has a fro or not.
  • Does It MATTER
  • stripe black/white lol
  • It is considered a baby. Mixed race if you must be pedantic.
  • mulatto
  • Both. But what does it matter? Seriously.
  • I consider the baby.....AMERICAN!!!!!
  • In this day and age, I think it may be more common to identify by culture...and this is what I have seen. Those who identify with the white culture call themselves white and those that identify with the black culture identify themselves as black. I know some people will slam me for this but this is what I know to be true.
  • Depends on who wants it.
  • WHITE!!! MALE DOMINANCE!!! jk. its considered asian. or a towel head, you know... sand colored lawl =D nah guys im just jk'ing it doesn't matter. though most of the people i know would consider it black. though in reality... if you were to mix white and black paint... you get grey... so we must consider it brown paint lol. the mix is not considered white. most would simplify it to brown, avoiding guessing the correct middle tone such as tan, or sand colored. =D
  • Years ago during when blacks where slaves, it was decided by the white man that anyone that was mixed with black would always be considered as completely black and it has been that way ever since. It just was always undestood by blacks and was ingraved in whites minds whether they like blacks or not. It just has never been changed.....If you are any race mixed with black ...Legally your Black!
  • the child takes the father color darling case and point my uncle married this black chick and they've a son he is 6 yr old one day i told him to sit his black ass down and he went off on me he said the baby takes the dad's color so even a child knows that like my mom is white and my dad is peutro rican and mexican so naturally im latino im dark skin and my fiance is a white man and if we have a child the child will take his color naturally
  • I am mixed. I check the box that says multicultural or I check the black box because I am darker than any white person and couldn't get away with checking it. Checking the black box also makes you eligible for certain scholarships in college. Sometimes I choose not to check a box, it all depends on what its for. Your babies are going to be your babies. The box they check will have little effect on the rest of their lives. Its how comfortable you make them with the background that matters.
  • off white
  • Personally I would make no such definition, but I've come across this consideration when I worked for a survey company in New Zealand and one of the statistical questions was race. (It was a question you could decide not to answer if you wished). Usually the answer was fairly clearcut but quite often also it was a question people could not honestly answer, if for example they were born in one country and had lived in NZ for years. Another example was where Maori and European ancestry had intermingled for generations - a common scenario here. I remember one European-born man who spoke fluent Maori and who had been "adopted" as an elder in the tribe who considered himself Maori. In the end the company decided to accept whatever people decided they were and we often missed that question altogether.
  • My 7 yr old son is mixed. His father is black and I am white. He made up his own mind and refers to him self as brown.
  • I guess that depends on the parents and the child. I know plenty of interracial couples with kids and some of the kids refer to themselves as black and some mixed, I've known people that were mixed that felt they had to choose what to call themselves because of society or parental pressure and most chose black..I've never seen one call himself white who was mixed though, I guess that might be against most people's perceptions or need to define a person by color of skin.
  • I believe its considered oreo........if im not mistaken
  • biracial.
  • I heard they are white until a few month later. Then they turn black. This is right?
  • Usually mixed race. The good news is that they are usually beautiful!
  • I personally think the baby got the both. So, the baby is neither black nor white. But I think most people think the baby is black. Look our president Obama. He is half black half white but everybody call him our first black president. I really don't know why..
  • People consider white and black to be mixed, but the father trait is more dominate the mothers trait, if the mom is white but the daddy is black, then technically, the offspring is black and vice versa
  • in the uk one would use the term half-cast. my kids are half whit european and half black-carribean. now i asked their dad and he said people will call them black. i argued they did'nt look dark "brown" like him and that they have a nice sun-tan colour, but he said they had a lot of black features such as the nose, curly hair, dark/black brown eyes and so on. so i think it depends how much/many fetures of what race is inherited, but not from the mother who gives birth.
  • personally , i think this is stupid....what if it is an Indian (apache) father with a white mother...they are not considered JUST INDIAN...... this is a question(race) that is left off now, because it does not matter...... my grandsons daddy is black ,and he has tried to tell him he was Black.....but he will not have it...he will tell him, ADAMAMTLY ,"no daddy, you are black. i am both..black and white" ..this perturbs his daddy, but it is TRUTH ....his daddy is a very vain ,envious person....but his son puts his straight ...my daughter just says , "i am trying to raise a MAN, not a certain culture or color...color does not matter, just "character"...:)justme
  • everyone i know calls them mixed but i dont really seem to notice the persons skin color when i talk to them.
  • The child's black. Consider Barack Obama and Halle Berry. (My spelling may be wrong...) both are children of black/white marriages, both are known as black people.
  • Legally the baby is black for purposes of government programs aimed at black people. . The general population will regard the baby as black if his/her skin and/or features are close to other people considered black. . As an individual the baby will eventually choose an identity that may or may not even have anything to do with race.
  • By whom? For what?
  • Human I believe !
  • they're bi-racial. which makes them not black nor white.
  • Mulatto. Same for White and Native American.
  • uh, would saying "grey" be racist?
  • Well my husband is black and I am white and his family thinks that Obama is black? Go figure. They say that if the dad is black so is the child. I say mixed. It's a baby. Does it matter.
  • Your baby will be a human being , firt of all .In America he or she will be label as black , but in Europe bi-racial , or mixed race , no one drop rule in Europe and other parts of the world, only in America.
  • As much as I feel like I'm trying to mix vinegar and water, I think that your baby has the right to be considered special, beautiful, talented and important. And take from both halves of her culture. They're both hers; whatever other people think is irrelevant. If someone asks you what her race is, just say beautiful or handsome, depending.
  • They would be considered black. I always find it confusing - as in the debate with Obama - because from an English perspective most 'black' Americans are not what we would call black - black in skin tone is what the new Somali/Nigerian etc immigrants we get here are. The vast majority of black Americans we see on screen or in the press look decidedly mixed / more milk chocolate than dark! Look at Obama, or Halle Berry, or Beyonce. So we can take it that black is a cultural label, and because of the racism people with African heritage have had to experience in the past, anyone with enough African heritage for it to be obvious - even if of a much paler skin tone - would be labelled black, probably at least in part because their skin tone then lays them open to the prejudice that people with non-white skin can experience.
  • I am a white woman with a black man. We have a son, he is legally considered white. It is whatever the mothers race is.
  • I was always told that such a child is considered black. Whether or not this is correct or not, I can't say. However, it does seem that these children bear predominately black characteristics.
  • Are you asking what "society" considers the child to be, or what the actual physical race of the child is? It is important to differentiate, because for medical reasons, the child's race is an issue. As far as society goes, who really cares? Most people I know refer to mixed race children as "mixed". I have a son who is half Hispanic and half Caucasian, and I have another son who is half Hispanic and half Afican American. When they are asked what race they are, that is how they respond. It's the truth. Simple.
  • how bout human like us ....I'm just sayin....
  • WHO CARES ABOUT THE COLOR OF THE SKIN?....I NEVER SEE THE COLOR OF THE SKIN..IT'S WHAT INSIDE OF THAT PERSON THAT WE SHOULD FOCUS...
  • In the eyes of the world your child will always be seen as black. I have a bi-racial child and that's just the truth of the matter. Even though he is 50-50. Black/White.
  • Oreos!
  • A coconut
  • its black alryt in the united kingdom
  • The baby is considered "mixed". Who cares, though? Why does it matter?
  • its considered "milado".
  • You can call the baby Bi-racial or black and white or mulatto. not "miliado"
  • THE REAL ANSWER LIES WITH THE MALE, THE RACE IS DETERMINED BY THE MALE'S RACE. IF ALL WHITE MALES BREED WITH FEMALES OF ANOTHER RACE THE CHILD'S OUTCOME WILL BE WHITE OR AMERICAN ASIAN.EUROPEAN AMERICAN.
  • I have 2 biracial children and we dont consider them either race, they are not one race or the other and they should not be labeled by anyone, they have the best of both worlds!
  • This question, the whole topic, is so 1960s. We have a president who has two cultures. Why can't people just accept that Ward and June Cleaver were fictional characters. My grandfather refused to attend my father's wedding to a (gasp) Catholic. He certainly wouldn't have attended my wedding to my beautiful Kenyan bride (double gasp). That was 3 generations ago. Come on, the telegraph is dead. The world's gone digital. My daughter is a member of two distinct and interesting cultures. My wife's Kikuyu clan accepts me. My family prefers my bride's company to mine. Who really gives a sh%t about lineage?
  • probably a mixture of both
