Do you think inquiring about someone's race is offensive?


I was in a tl;dr situation where I wasnt sure of someone's racial background- I thought he was perhaps half black/half white but never asked- until someone else asked me if said person was white. I then asked someone who would know if the person in question was biracial like I thought he was, citing the other person's confusion.

I wouldnt be offended if someone asked me, but I'm not sure if I was rude here. Thoughts?
