Default Biracial players

How many guys in the league are biracial? I was thinking about this earlier today and often wondered. Let me know if I'm forgetting any:

Shane Battier(white mother, black father)
Ira Newble(white father, black mother?)
Tony Parker(white mother, black father)
Jason Kidd(white mother, black father)
Carmelo Anthony(Dominican mother, black father)
Mike Bibby(I think his mother is Panamanian and father is mulatto)

Technically. Dominicans are grouped as Hispanics, and Hispanics and African-Americans are different. Are those two confirmed? I would assume so by looking at them, but a lot of people who look biracial are really hispanic.

Gilbert is Cuban on his father's side, his mom is black (American).

Carmelo's mom is black, his father is Puerto Rican.

Drew Gooden - black father, white mother.

When will people learn that "hispanic" and "latino" are not races but a label based on linguistics?



A black person wether in latin america,the USA,West Indies or Africa is still a black person.

A Native American from peru that speaks spanish is still going to be a native american lol
