What race category would I fit in?
I am mixed with these various ethnics:
African, European, Southern South Asian,
Southern Indian & Sri Lankan, Chinese & Southeast Asian, Filipino & Austronesian,
Indonesian, Thai, Khmer & Myanma, Native American, Western Asian & North African
I consider myself black-mixed and I am light skinned. But when I go to fill out employment/ doctors applications and etc., do I still choose “black” or “other” or “two or more races?

but racists will categorise you based on your actual skincolour

Choose whatever you like. Employment forms shouldn't be asking your race anyway. I haven't filled out anything that asks for my "race" for years. Medically, they can claim it makes a difference in predisposition for various conditions, but I still don't put it on any form, because frankly I don't need them diagnosing me off of some data point. For employment forms, it's just none of their damn business.
