W. Kamue Bell is on the right track, but with the wrong wording in his newest documentary this week on HBO. I’m tired of “mixed race” terminology. It lends itself to mixed up kids, which we have all seen in headlines. “Multiracial” is the correct and respectful terminology. It’s even what the government uses when speaking of forms in this country. Mixed is also the opposite of “pure,” and do we really want to go to mixed and pure in this country? Bell led these kids in “1000% me: Growing up Mixed” to all use the term “mixed race.” Let’s give these kids the respect they deserve–Multiracial.
