The recent 2010 Census revealed that 9 million people are of mixed race.  That's a 32% growth rate over the past decade.  And when it comes to multiracial kids, they're the fastest-growing youth demographic in America.  But how do people of mixed race identify themselves?  On his census form, President Obama identified himself as "black" - not biracial.  How do you self-identify?  How do others see you?  Do you look like others of your race, and does that matter?  Las Vegans share their stories of growing up multiracial in America.
