I am a biracial adult (african-american and caucasian) with a family history of biracial since my great grandmother. I am married to a caucasian husband, so my oldest daughter looks a lot like me and has my hubbys hair and then my youngest daughter has my hubbys skintone and my son is in between. My oldest daughter is having problems at school where the school is 95% white and we live in a community where it is not widely accepted to live in a biracial marriage and she is having problems. I had problems living here as a child as well. Would you consider a move to a more diverse place or deal with it? I really hate to see her having problems at school and dealing with people asking her what background she comes from. She is also 5 feet tall because she gets height from both sides of the family, so she is a head taller than everyone in her class. I told her not to be ashamed of what she is at all and to tell people proudly where her family is from. She still seems to be struggling with it. What would you do ?
