Anonymous asked: I'm mixed and I'm either called exotic or a mutt. Like people fail to have good adjectives about me their all ways you describe animals. It's so degrading people say mixed babies end racism. That's bullshit we experience bigotry and racism from both PoC and White people along with fetishation from both.

Anonymous asked: HAve you heard of Steve Byrne? He's a half Korean/half Irish comedian who talks a lot about racism and the inbetween-racism

No I haven’t heard of him before, but I will definitely check him out now..

Anonymous asked: Yes I am a multi-ethnic and multi-cultural person and I get it, that sometimes its hard for some to understand why I look the way I do. But seriously DO NOT call me racially ambiguous. I find it very demeaning. Like I am no longer a person of substance or of value. I am not some some rare foreign bird yet to be discovered or a pretty ornament that you put in a display case. I am a person and I do matter. I can not and will not change who I am. So please respect me as an individual not a prize.

Anonymous asks: The protagonist of my novel is half black and also the daughter of a prominent political family with a white Senator for a father. I imagine her home life as being dominated by white upper-middle class culture, but I don’t want her to be completely white-washed either. What sort of struggle might a person in her position face, and how would you suggest I include this part of her identity when it’s not the main conflict?

Please keep in mind that all of these are possibilities and are in no way meant to be used as hard truths. Using only these traits/experiences could make your character into a stereotype.

Your protagonist could face several struggles depending on her upbringing. Remember that every person will react differently to situations depending on their character, etc, but some things come to mind which might play a significant role in her life.

"Black In Latin America" premiered on April 19th on PBS. This four part series was the latest from Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates, Jr. “It examines how Africa and Europe came together to create the rich cultures of Latin America and the Caribbean.”  I watched the series online on PBS in April and May.  I listed the episodes and links for you to watch as well.
