Why do people say you don't have to be 50/50 to be mixed?

If your not 50/50 or anywhere near 50/50 you are not remotely mixed race.

Update:

If it's 80% soda then it'd be soda you fkn idiot

    Races are based on their overall appearances. It is not always based on what races some people are mostly mixed with.

    People can be similar racial mixtures and different racial identities. There are different physical extents and gray areas of

    people looking racially mixed with two or several races. Some biracial people or multiracial people who look mostly mixed

    with certain races also look considerably mixed with lesser amounts of different races. Other biracial people or multiracial

    people who mostly mixed with some races look similar to different mixed races or racial groups from their racial makeups.

    In the US if you have 1% of black blood you are black. I don't know why. Seems stupid but that's the law. You don't have to be 50/50% of anything y be mixed. Everybody in the US is mixed with something. We are all mutts.

    You don't have to be 50/50 week to me considered mixed.

    Condoleezza Rice had her DNA check many years ago. She was 51% sub-Saharan African descent and she was 40% percent Caucasian. 

    Percentage in DNA varies from person to person. A person can say they're 50% black and 50% White, but it all depends on your genotype, which can speak volumes as opposed to your phenotype.

      I can't believe people think those test are accurate. If Condoleezza was that mixed she'd look similar to a biracial woman. She looks like the average black woman

    because they falsely believe that there are races of people, and that passing on genetics is like mixing paint.

    You have 46 chromosomes - 23  from either parent - and the luck of the draw decides which 23 you pass on to that child you make

    If your grandparents or great grandparents were of a different race, you are mixed.

    When you make a mixed drink do you mix 50% whisky and 50% coke? No, it's usually something like 20% alcohol 80% soda but it's still a mixed drink you carrot IQ dipsh*t.
