All Mixed Up

This NPR article is a very good read for anyone trying to have a better understanding on biracial identities.  What always surprised me was the comfort level people had to ask very personal questions soon as they meet me. How my parents met, were my parents disowned for marrying outside of their own race, how do I identify myself, was a bullied, etc.  I am always willing to talk about racial dynamics, but people need to remember just simple human etiquette. Let's remember to get to know people a little bit more before you start getting so personal. Let's start by just asking for my middle name first.  Oh! also, you also see me being featured in this article from the project I was previously part of called, 'Evoking the Mulatto" Check it out :)
