I'm Larry. The forms I see everyday for census bureau never quantify who I am. People see me as hispanic although I am not. I look hispanic. I am a mixed person. Mom was white, she told me my father was black. I never met him. He died before I was born. I grew up with my mom's side of the family. It was sort of rough..now that I'm an adult..they sory of have nothing to do with me. As a kid I was..treated differently for not being 100% anything. Some black people who were my friends I found hated me due to they thought I got treated better than they did. Some white people didn't like me due to they hated hispanics...Hispanics or latin people hated me when they found I wasn't one of them and didn't speak Spanish. Currently being in the mil it's worse. People are uneasy with not being able to label or quantify...so they treat me as what they think I am. I'm tired. When my kids were born their mom was latina so I told her to classify them as that so they wouldn't go thru same crap I did. I have been looking to see..if there is anyone...similar in mixed heritage or has similar issues..I have and do have in life. Well that's my story. unless you can be constructive or supportive...don't respond.
