So let's say my parents are both white, insofar as they are of European descent and have light skin. I'm pretty white, too; but when exposed to the sun in reasonable amounts I turn a decent shade of brown like my dad. Two of my older siblings have a different biological father of some other ethnicity that has darker skin, but the same mom as me. Also, my dad has a daughter with another woman before he meets my mom (she's fairly light-skinned), and their daughter is white as a sheet and moved to Seattle for what might as well be the sake of her skin. Besides myself, my mom and dad have two other boys, same complexion as me but not nearly as handsome.
Now, the riddle part: What race are they? What race am I?

Sweet Jesus, I really had to get that off of my chest. All that in bold? Yeah, originally it was all in caps because in my brain I was yelling.
Racism is racism, which is just another form of bigotry. It doesn't matter what color the person is who's passing judgment; it doesn't matter what color the person is who's being judged. There is never a good excuse.
