If I have kids with a half Puerto Rican man would they be considered mixed?

He’s half Puerto Rican and half white and I’m white

    Yes they would be considered mixed.

    We're all mixed since our parents aren't/weren't clones. If your kids inherit traits that are rare among people of European descent (such as Afro-textured hair or very dark skin) they'll be more likely to be considered mixed by strangers.

    The Puerto Ricans that are descended from Spanish colonists are white.  Speaking Spanish as a first language does not make someone not white.

    Only if his Puerto Rican side wasn’t fully white

    ahh, who am I kidding, there’s no such thing as a white Puerto Rican.

    Yes, that would qualify as mixed, but who the hell cares?

    I see so many questions like this on this site.

    What does it matter?  Why do people get so fixated about labeling themseves and others according to race or colour?

    If you have children with any man you love, they'll just be your lovely children.

    The bigger question is:  Under current discriminatory US voting laws would they even be eligible for half a vote?

    Puerto Rican is a nationality not a skin colour. As no skin colours in humans can be defined, if you want to call anyone "white" there is no reason for anyone to disagree with you.

      The nationality of Puerto Ricans is American.

    Yes do the fraction. Assuming your respective grandparents have the ethnicity to justify the half and half and your whole, then your children are naturally 1/4 Puerto Rican. Not that it matters since you’ll not have reason to declare ethnicity except for interest. (Assuming you live in a reasonable country)
