I Can Identify With Shaun King!

The name that appears on my original birth certificate beside the word "Father" belongs to a somewhat marginal member of  his community who cared a lot about my mother and was willing to  call himself my father to spare her further embarrassment.  The boy whose DNA i carry would become an accepted member of his community without a taint of scandal altough he had committed a violent felony,  The information on birth certificates is provided by the mother and it is rarely, if ever, questioned, even if the mother is a minor and unmarried.

My "sperm donor" was white, but the point is, he could have been of any race.  A birth certificate is only evidence that a mother made certain statements under what might have been extremely stressful and possibly embArrassing  circumstances.  It is not evidence that a competent judge, or even a competent journalist, should take as definitive, and it should not outweigh a person's  own statement about his or her identity.
