I don’t think my friend is who she claims to be

DEAR HARRIETTE: I think that a friend of mine is lying about her ethnicity in order to fit in with our friend group.

She is fair-skinned and has always claimed to be biracial. I haven’t seen her father, but her mother is definitely a White woman.

I understand that mixed-race people can look all types of ways, but I have my suspicions. I think that this girl is 100% White and decided to tell people that she is biracial. None of her social media shows that she has any Black relatives.

What should I do?  I can’t just force her to prove her Blackness … can I?
