You don't even have to be multiracial to see how problematic pressure to identify with a particular race can be for many people. I know many recent African immigrants for whom the term "black" literally refers to the actual colour of one's skin that also have problems self-identifying as black and would rather identify as a particular nationality or ethnic group.
