    Everyone who is bi-racial is mixed race, but not everyone who is mixed race is bi-racial. Mixed race could mean that someone is 25% Asian, 25% white, 25% black, and 25% Arab. Bi means "two", so bi-racial means made up of two races.

    They’re both different and that’s that biracial means 50/50 parents of 2 different races mixed race means not 50/50 and that you are predominantly a race but not fully like let’s say for instance if someone is 88% black and 10% white they are black but not pure black so they would be a mixed race because they are not pure.

    The difference between mixed and biracial is that mixed is having two or more separate aspects while biracial is of or pertaining to two races.

    neither are accepted in science.

    At the genetic level, there is just one race of humans left. Skincolour is just skincolour. Denisovans and Neanderthals are extinct

    Technically bi means two, mixed could be any amount that's more than one. So, all biracial people are mixed but not all mixed people are Biracial.

    How ever since English speakers are really bad with language, I think most people use them interchangeably.

    Biracial is someone who's a mix of 2 races, while mixed race is more of an umbrella term and means someone who is a mix of 2 or more races.
