Why Mixed with White isn't White

Why Mixed with White isn't White | Mixed American Life | Scoop.it
"Your child is as white as he is Asian… Why embrace one label and not the other?”

“Why is he Asian but not white? He has white ancestors as much as Asian ones. So if it's OK to call him Asian, it's OK to call him white. Or, if it's not OK to call him white (because he's not completely white) then it's not OK to call him Asian, because he's not completely Asian either.”

“Your child is neither white nor Asian. I once heard this description: When you have a glass of milk and add chocolate to it, you no longer have just a glass of milk and you no longer just have chocolate because you have created something completely different. A bi-racial or multi-racial child is not either/or.”

Japanese, German, English - Julie | Mixed American Life | Scoop.it
"Hi everyone! My name is Julie Taeko Gramlich, and I have always associated more with my Asian side.
..
I love the fact that I can break the barrier of race purely with my appearance. I have no idea how many times I have been asked the question “What are you?” or the more politically correct “What is your ethnicity?” I love it. I thrive on it. I almost beg to be asked."

Marlee Morton's curator insight, October 16, 2013 11:58 AM

This is a pretty good artical about a author who really looks into how the "asian culture" and asian immigrants are a lot like the U.S. people but yet different.

Say Hapa, With Care

Say Hapa, With Care | Mixed American Life | Scoop.it
"If you decide to use hapa in a non-Native Hawaiian context, I urge you to not rush to explain away the problems with it, but hold them in tension. Examine the many ways living in the United States can make you complicit with settler colonialism. There are no easy solutions to this complicity, but it is important to struggle against it nonetheless."

Absolutely correct. Even if your mother, say, was 100% Native American and your father was 50% Mexican and 50% Chinese, that is based only the previous generation's "suspected" blood lines. And even if the assumed blood lines are accurate, does this mean the dominant and recessive genes line up so neatly? Unlikely. Whatever you are, you are 100%. Your background is neither a matter of multiplication or division.
