An excellent article on mixed race Japanese. It states, “There is no box to tick on census forms for people of mixed heritage, says Shimoji, from Ritsumeikan University. Japanese census forms do not, he says, ask respondents for their ethnic and racial backgrounds nor for the nationalities of their parents not registered in a family unit.” https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/22/asia/japan-mixed-roots-hafu-dst-hnk-intl/

Will I ever be an equal citizen? This article was written by Laila Lalmai for The New York Times. It is an excellent article about how Muslims and Arab American have fought unsuccessfully to be recognized as an American classification by the U.S. Government and Census. It reminds me of the struggles of the multiracial population.

2020-06-25T09:35:26+00:00June 25th, 2020|

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 [...]

TO THE NEW YORK TIMES: AN OPEN LETTER TO THE ETHICIST I wish I could thank Kwame Anthony Appiah for setting the multiracial movement back over fifty years, but I can’t. He is “the ethicist” for the NY Times and wrote a column this week titled “How Should I think about Race when Considering a Sperm Donor?” Basically, it is about a White, Jewish woman who is considering sperm donation and cannot decide if it matters that the father could be a donor of color. First, Appiah manages to turn [...]

How to be counted as multiracial on the 2020 Census. We have been advised that another multiracial organization is putting out incorrect information about counting as multiracial on the 2020 Census when you are part Hispanic. They are saying that you can check Hispanic under the ethnicity question, check a race under the race question, and then write in “multiracial” under some other race. That will NOT get you counted as multiracial! You must check two or more races under the race question to be counted as “two or more [...]
