The Stranger Within - New Scientist vol 180 issue 2421 - 15 November 2003, page 34

"There is growing evidence that chimerism in one form or another may not be so unusual at all. In fact, some researchers now think that most of us, if not all, are chimeras of one kind or another. Far from being pure-bred individuals composed of a single genetic cell line, our bodies are cellular mongrels, teeming with cells from our mothers, maybe even from grandparents and siblings. This may seem a little shocking at first. The thought of playing host to cells from other people may offend your sense of individuality. But you may have
those outsiders to thank for keeping you healthy."

U.S. Census: Think Twice, Check Once

U.S. Census: Think Twice, Check Once | Mixed American Life | Scoop.it

"Demonized in the early twentieth century as sexually polluting and culturally degenerate, mixed race people are now all the rage. The New York Times hails them as Generation E.A.: Ethnically Ambiguous and celebrates them as ambassadors to the post-race new world order. With Obama, our self-described “mutt” President, as its poster-child, the “the Mulatto Millennium” is finally upon us…

 

The dramatic increase in public visibility and popularity in the last decade is also due to its appeal as a post-civil rights answer to the "race problem."

 

The widely-circulated manifesto, "Bill of Rights for Mixed Race People," for instance, insists on the refusal to be "boxed" in, on the Census or anywhere else: I can check black today, more than one tomorrow, refuse to check anything the day after.

 

According to some studies, well over 80% of people of African descent in North America are mixed and Latinos also, of course, have mestizo and diasporic mixes."
