A new study says that biracial Americans of black and white ancestry are more often self-identifying as black. The study, published in the Social Psychology Quarterly, finds that the majority of black-white biracial adults surveyed said they called themselves black.
The authors of the study describe this phenomenon "reverse passing."
"Most notably, we find a striking reverse pattern of passing today—while passing during the Jim Crow era involved passing as white, these respondents more often report passing as black today."
