I am creole and am bi-racial. Yet people tend to always ask me what am I?

I don't know....i have the same problem but it doesn't bother me....I'm 100% Mexican...Both Mom and Dad! But people say I look Mixed...Philipino, black, cuban, puertorican, samoan...When I went on vacation to hawaii I was asked a few times from what Island I was from...people thought I was a local! I think people are just curious...Creole people look different too..the accent is what gets me sometimes.....I have a question...don't take offense to it because I really don't know the answer to it...Do creole people consider themselves black? African American?

We consider oursleves human. Most of us anyway. Some of us are looked at as Half_Breed, some of us are looked at as African Americans, and some of us are looked at as Mixed or BI am i-Racial. Some of us do say we are African American. I now say I am Human nothing else.
