I don’t know the exact number or anything (Google it and get back to me), but I know the number of biracial kids is up — a lot. Born to my Mexican-American husband and me, an African-American woman, my three sons have a heritage that is part Mexican, part black and totally American. Our Dudes have faced numerous situations where an unsuspecting person (surprisingly usually an adult, not another kid) says something insensitive to them about Hispanic people, not realizing that their father is Hispanic. They’ve had another child tell them that they shouldn’t let other people say they’re black because it’s rude.As my husband and I do not have overtly strong cultural ties to our own heritages, our children are living a similar existence. They hear more than a kid whose race is readily-discernible.The couple were hauled from their house and thrown into jail, where Mildred remained for several days, all for the crime of getting married.
I was just wondering if anyone else is expecting a biracial baby, or has one. She says shes OK with it but that I should watch out because my father is going to be mad!

The more white supremacists can convince non-white people to remain divided the stronger the racists become.
