New York Times uses “Multiracial”

New York Times uses “Multiracial” The New York Times published an analysis on August 24 titled, “Even With Affirmative Action, Blacks and Hispanics Are More Underrepresented at Top Colleges Than 35 Years Ago.” They made their affirmative action arguments based on the results. We are very glad that the Times used the term “Multiracial” when describing students who utilized either a multiracial classification or check two or more races. One of the goals of Project RACE since the 1990s has been to work with schools, companies, medical institutions, and other [...]

Project RACE Denounces White Supremacy

2017-08-14T06:03:52+00:00August 14th, 2017|

Project RACE Denounces White Supremacy The Board of Directors of Project RACE denounces white supremacy, white nationalists, and neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klan, white nationalists, and the “alt-right” for their blatant racism and hate rally in Charlottesville, Virginia over the past weekend. Project RACE will always stand against any persons who threaten the multiracial community and any other minority group. The hateful speech and deplorable actions by a few resulted in deaths and injuries and must be stopped before they are allowed to thrive and spread violence. We acknowledge President Trump’s [...]

FAMOUS FRIDAY: Kamala Harris

2020-09-30T00:33:55+00:00November 18th, 2016|

Most of the world was expecting November 8, 2016 to mark the election of the first female president of the United States.  It did not. Many believe, however, that it was the day when America met the woman who could "shatter that glass ceiling"... perhaps as early as 2020. Kamala Harris is California’s new Junior United States Senator-Elect. Harris is both the second black woman and the first Indian-American ever elected to the Senate. Yes, she is multiracial, the daughter of an Indian-American Hindu mother, Dr. Shyamala Gopalan Harris, a breast cancer specialist, who [...]

Getting to the Essence

2020-09-29T04:50:36+00:00September 4th, 2016|

Getting to the Essence I don’t read Essence, Ebony, or any of the other popular lifestyle magazines for black females. I am not in their demographics in any fathomable way. But, every so often they publish something so offensive that it gets my attention. Once in a while they have a commentary that casts multiracial people or parents of multiracial children in uncomplimentary light. The dis pisses me off. Quite often, they take the self-identity of a multiracial person and make them black. It’s bad journalism, not to mention that [...]

Our sons

Our sons are biracial and their lives matter, too My son will be 32 years old this week. When he was three, I took him to nursery school one day and he said, “Mom, I’m black.” I looked at him in his car seat and took a deep breath. I had been practicing the story since the day he was born about the fact that his father was black, and his mother was white, and that made him biracial/multiracial. I began my story and he was silent. I didn’t hear [...]
