Admittedly, I know little to nothing about it aside from "don't be an idiot, disclose if you're unsure," but if you had a justifiable reason and it was a weird situation and you stuck to your guns, how would they be able to tell you otherwise? Would they actually ask for proof of race?
My aunt took the bar in NY and never had to prove anything. She got a scholarship to her school for claiming she was Puerto Rican (latino? don't remember what exactly) even though her dad was spanish and only lived there for a few years as a kid. She felt guilty about it but it was never an issue for her.
I imagine it was not an issue because she clearly looks Hispanic, so people did not question. If OP claimed to be 1/2 black but is 100% Asian, it might raise some more flags.
