Well, I really don't like for this to have any part of the forums, but since you asked me the question, I'll respectfully respond. I am, what most people would call, "full." Although there are a lot of white "bloodlines" that run through my family. As well as tons of Native American. My paternal grandfather was half white. (His mother was a slave who was raped by her master. Not uncommon in those days.) And tons of white and Indian on my mother's side. Tons of people think me and my brother are actually Latino. My brother gets people coming up to him speaking Spanish in the city all the time.

Sharon Pratt Dixon. Yes, I remember her well. She actually crossed my mind not too long ago. I've been wondering what she's up to. Is she still in the area? She was actually mayor in the 90s. (91-95) She remarried soon after she was elected, (Sharon Pratt Kelly.) Very cool info, man. Thanks for sharing.
