Project RACE Update August, 2018 Census Undercount of the Multiracial Population – IMPORTANT! The US Census Bureau does not want multiracial or biracial people to be counted as multiracial. Numerous organizations both non-profit and governmental do not want the multiracial population counted as two or more races. They want to count us, but as single-race individuals. Outreach programs have been started that systematically omit the multiracial community. This will continue until the 2020 Census. Every community has been asked to be a part of the efforts to count their population [...]

Enemies in Love: A German POW, a Black Nurse, and an Unlikely Romance By Alexis Clark Book Review by Susan Graham Enemies in Love, published by The New Press, is hardly a typical romance novel. It’s the story of Elinor Powell, an Army nurse and Frederick Albert, a German prisoner of war in the 1940s. The first part reads like an academic book and the second half you might think is fiction, but it is very real. The first surprise is that German POWs were held in camps in remote [...]

Lupita Nyong'o  Box office sensation Black Panther has been in theaters for a little while now. I saw it twice opening weekend and am hoping to see it for a third time this weekend. As I believe everyone has either seen for themselves, or heard from others, the movie is great. But, it wasn’t all about, Chadwick Boseman, who played Black Panther. A large portion of the movie’s great success, earning well over 900 million dollars worldwide to date, is thanks to the movie’s stellar supporting cast. This group of [...]

Don’t Get Conned

Don’t Get Conned There is one whale of a story going around online today on CNN called “The blurring of racial lines won’t save America. Why ‘racial fluidity’ is a con.” Don’t get conned by believing the article by someone named John Blake. Shame on Blake and CNN for this lopsided story. It’s below, if you really want to read it. The article itself is prejudiced against multiracial people who choose to identify as multiracial. Everyone in it identifies as black, so Blake has lots of friends who are multiracial [...]

Famous Friday: Trae Young You’ve probably heard of the Oklahoma Sooner who is taking his sport by storm.  No, I’m not talking about Baker Mayfield. I’m talking about the stellar shooting guard who is leading not only his team, but the entire NCAA in points and assists per game. He’s even drawn comparisons to one of the NBA’s most talented point guards, Steph Curry. As well as getting praise from the two time MVP himself.    Curry Said, "I call it the flair, but it seems like he's always composed and knows what [...]
