The article states that in 1997, golfer Tiger Woods surprised many U.S. citizens when he objected to being called African-American and referred to himself as "Cablinasian," a blending of his Caucasian, Black, Indian, and Thai blood. Woods may be verbal about it, but he is not alone in having a multi-racial background. Between 1960 and 1990, interracial marriages recorded by the Census increased 900%, and from 1970 to the late 1990s, the population of multiracial children in the United States quadrupled.
