Octoroon means a person of fourth-generation black ancestry. Genealogically, it means one-eighth black. Typically an Octoroon has one great-grandparent who is of full African descent and seven great-grandparents who are not.

Hey, if you feel you identify and have always claimed AA status in the past, go for it. If not, work on trying to be a human being.

Isn't there a SCOTUS case on this? Plessy v. Ferguson?
