“What am I?”
Here on my blog you will read about my “Biracial Experience” and my opinion on controversial issues with being mixed. Race and racism did not become an acknowledged part of my life until my middle school year. I knew my father was white and my mother was black, and I was beautiful creation of the two somewhere in between. But that was okay, it made sense to my family and I . On the other hand my classmates were the ones who simply did not understand, that a lucky girl like me could have the best of both worlds! :)
I was inspired to blog after stumbling across Tiffany Jones, of Mulatto Diaries on Youtube. Her vlogs opened my eyes to the huge Biracial Community that is out here. It is hard to find individuals that can relate to the “Biracial Experience”, especially when you grow up in a area of a predominate race.
Since I began blogging I have connected with so many other inspiring Biracial individuals such as Heidi Durrow and Fanshen Cox of Mixed Chicks Chat, a podcast about being racially and culturally mixed.
