White actors and actresses are jumping ship from playing “mixed-race” characters so that Hollywood can replace them with Black ones. Kristen Bell will no longer voice a biracial character on Central Park. Jenny Slate quit Big Mouth role saying Black characters should be played by Black people. Her role was as a young multiracial girl. This is the fact: Multiracial characters should be played by multiracial actresses. Bell and Slate bought into the old plantation “one drop rule and you’re black.” It’s not necessary and is racist. These are just [...]

Kamala Harris is no Friend of the Multiracial Community

2019-06-29T14:58:15+00:00June 29th, 2019|

  I always liked Kamala Harris before she became a presidential contender. Now, I’m not so sure. Unless you were under a rock somewhere last week, you knew how she attacked former vice-president Joe Biden for his working with separatists during the busing years. Harris started the attack by stating, “As the only black person on this stage, I would like to speak on the issue of race.” Some people on social media then accused her of telling the story of busing as if she was a black American. She [...]

The Kardashian Doll Clash

2020-09-29T04:49:03+00:00December 30th, 2018|

  I admit to not following the Kardashian family. I may be the only one. But something really jumped out at me in the last few days. Khloe Kardashian sent out a tweet asking for help finding a “biracial doll” for her biracial daughter. Dolls that resemble biracial or multiracial babies are not exactly a new phenomenon, but some do exist. That doesn’t really seem to be the problem. Many, many people started social media screaming about black dolls being readily available and that Khloe should get her “really black” [...]

Dr. Meredith Grey vs Actress Ellen Pompeo?

2018-12-07T07:21:50+00:00December 7th, 2018|

  I admit my favorite TV Show is “Grey’s Anatomy” and one of my favorite actresses is Ellen Pompeo, who stars as Dr. Meredith Grey. Yes, I know Ellen is not a real doctor, she’s an accomplished actress and for that she needs a certain degree of intelligence. I recently found out that Pompeo, who is white, is married to a black man. So far, so good, but then she said that she is a “white lady with a black husband and black children.” She has also been outspoken about [...]

Blacks and Cardiac Death

2020-09-29T17:05:58+00:00November 19th, 2018|

  A very interesting article appeared recently in The New York Times called “Blacks are Twice as Likely as Whites to Experience Sudden Cardiac Death.” The study is seen as extremely well-researched and appeared in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. The researchers controlled for a wide-variety of factors, including education, physical activity, diabetes, high blood pressure, smoking, income, and more. But even after accounting for the differences, they found that the risk for sudden cardiac death was still 97 percent higher in blacks than in whites. Although [...]

Multiracial Numbers Increase

2020-09-29T04:58:09+00:00June 23rd, 2018|

The U.S. population is getting older and more racially diverse, according to new estimates from the Census Bureau. The findings come out as a separate analysis finds that for the first time, white deaths exceeded births in a majority of states. White people remain the majority in the U.S. — but in new data from the Census Bureau, non-Hispanic whites were the only group that didn't grow from 2016 to 2017. Whites declined by .02 percent to a total of around 198 million people. Among other racial groups, Asians were [...]

An unfortunate occurrence

Real American: A Memoir BOOK REVIEW

2017-11-21T09:53:57+00:00November 21st, 2017|

Book Review by Susan Graham Real American: A Memoir I read a review of Real American: A Memoir by Julie Lythcott-Haims in The New York Times yesterday. It said Julie Lythcott-Haims’ new memoir is about growing up biracial. It’s not. It’s about growing up black. If you want to get really angry, read this book. In fact, it should be required reading for anyone even thinking about being in an interracial relationship and especially parents of multiracial children. In so many ways, it’s a primer on what not to do. [...]
