Say you have a friend (or ex-friend, as in my case) who always told you (and told her now 12yo twins) that her ex-husband, and the twins' father, was full blooded Native American. You happen to find out that he is not Native American, but is Black. And identifies as Black. |
This person has a history of lying, but I was shocked that she lied to her own kids about their heritage. The woman is white.
Does she lie about this man's heritage because she's racist, she wants to make him seem like a "more exotic" PoC, or some other weird reason to lie to her own kids about their own heritage?
Yes, I know it's none of my business, but the motivation boggles my mind.
