A few months ago, I not-so-subtly asserted myself as biracial while having dinner with a new coworker.
I used to be the only biracial kid in the room. Now, my exponentially expanding cohort promises a future where everyone is mixed. By Nicholas Hune-Brown |
Mixie. Short for mixed-race person, can be used as an insult or a compliment. When everyone is a mixie, it's no insult.
If you are at all interested in media representations of the Mixed experience, The Neighbors is an important situation comedy to watch. It airs on ABC at 8:30 (7:30 Central) and is in its second season.

"Justin Petrone, like me, is a mixed race person with Native American ancestry, although unlike me, initially, he never thought of himself in those terms. I’ve always known and since I was a child, self-identified myself in that way. Like me, Justin has spent years searching for his elusive ancestors, more often than not, hidden in the mists of time with only suggestions of who their ancestors are by words on tax lists and census records like “free person of color.”
Most of the time, Native people were transparent, until they became at least “civilized” enough to be counted on the census, or taxed or they did something else to bring them into the white man’s realm. More recently, Justin and others like us have been able to confirm, or deny, that heritage via DNA testing. So even if we don’t know exactly who our ancestor is, we are positive THAT our Native heritage is real. In some cases, through DNA testing we can learn which of our ancestral lines is Native."
Sometimes we’ve been doing genetic genealogy for so long we forget what it’s like to be new. I’m reminded, sometimes humorously, by some of the questions I receive. When I do DNA Reports for clien...
Excellent description by scientist Roberta Jestes @robertajestes
Kanye West thinks Kim Kardashian and her family are role models for interracial relationships.
We’ve done posts in the past about the handshake dilemma between Black and White people. When Black people and White people introduce themselves to each other in the office, everyone pretty much sticks to the standard handshake (unless you work for some phone app development company where dudes where ironic t-shirts and everyone wears knitted hats all year. In which case, you can stick to the standard high five). But casual and social encounters between the two parties can result in a catastrophic collision of cultural courtesies.

Before June of 1967, sixteen states still prohibited interracial marriage, including Virginia, the home of Richard Perry Loving, a white man, and his wife, Mildred Loving, a woman of African-American and Native-American descent.
There's been a lot of coverage in the Canadian mainstream media about Canada being a post-racial or post-immigrant country, but Anupa Mistry says Canada is still a racist place.
Oscar award winning actress Halle Berry has also talked about being biracial, “Being biracial is sort of like being in a secret society,” she said.

It takes a clear head to drill into the bedrock of history, especially when that history contains some pretty atrocious acts. Lucky for us, Stephen Fry is up to the task.
Apparently, though, Asian women are preferred by everyone.
