  1. its weird, in all of these google searches, majority are just plain hateful, but there are a few that are genuine questions. I mean, alot of us Americans are ignorant to anything that pertains to race, nationality, ethnicity, anything in general, so its natural for people to be interested in why Asians eyes look slanted, or why black people have black skin or coarse hair, or why Indians are called Indians.

    now when you did the mixed race one, do you mean mixed in general or mixed as in black/white?

    This is why I wish we could return to the word Mulatto or something to describe black/white, id say that there are enough mixes out there now that bunching us all together simply for being 2 or more races is unfair to the actual mixed person. It certainly makes it harder to find what you are looking for thats for sure.

  2. hey alwaysright- first i searched why are mulattoes… nothing came up. so i switched it to mixed. this is exactly why i use the word mulatto (in print anyway). i really think a big part of this whole “movement” is reclaiming that word and essentially reclaiming ourselves. taking our story off the lips of those who know nothing about it firsthand, and telling it ourselves. getting rid of the stigma. i am not ashamed to be a “mulatto.” i am not tragic. no more than any other “kind” of human being anyway. and if part of my “tragedy” stems from being biracial, it’s because of what that means to other people (who know nothing about it) not by the virtue of simply being biracial.

  3. Stereotypes are so fascinating. My ad agency is leading the creative for the Census 2010 awareness campaign. I am continually shocked and even embarrassed by the statements made by people on agency and client sides:

    “This won’t appeal to the Puerto Rican audience because it’s not colorful enough.”
    “Can we add an athlete? Mexicans love boxing!”
    “I think it’s more appropriate to use something like chopsticks or panda bears to represent the Chinese audience.”

    I know it’s human nature to group and stereotype, but there’s a fine line ……

  4. *claps loudly* Thank you, Tiff! That’s the truth.

    People who are ignorant will always stereotype others. They will always lump people together.

    You are one of the few people I’ve encountered online who cares about the multiracial movement. I’m reluctant to talk about it most of the time because first, race is an awkward subject and second, people tend to believe that you’re “denying” who you are by claiming a biracial/multiracial identity.

    This is why I scoff at the notion of the “tragic mulatto”. There’s nothing tragic or shameful about it. The only tragedy is the way society responds to people who don’t fit neatly into a cookie cutter pattern.
