Geographically speaking Latin-America, but demographically considered part of the Caribbean.
She has full African ancestry. Difficult to find out from which country exactly (there are no records of that), but most probably Ghanese.
African culture among slaves was preserved better in Suriname than in North-America.
My father was German.
That's why just "black" doesn't really cover it, especially when some people are trying hard to find the errors in your posts.
But normally I would call myself "black" too, especially since people consider Obama black. I've been raised by my mother alone, so those are the values I've been taught.
Where are your parents from?
