Ten-year-old Trevor Sage-el describes his life at home and at school, his feelings about being the son of a white mother and a black father and what he likes and does not like about being biracial. “Sometimes people ask me, ‘What are you?’,” observes Trevor. “I usually answer, ‘Human.’ I have friends of all colors. I don’t want to have to choose between black and white. I’m both and I like it.”
