About

Fight racism and bias by always questioning race

We curate and share photos, articles and videos on the topics of mixed culture, mixed heritage and mixed identity; whether mixed by proximity, relationships, or adoption. We also post unique articles by various bloggers, and we especially like to discuss intersectionality.

All this blends with our mission of reducing xenophobia and hate which we blog about at Community Village, which then lead to starting the blog OppressionMonitor to expose those against peace, multiculturalism and pluralism.

For an academic view of mixed heritage life in the U.S. and beyond, check Mixed Race Studies, managed by Steven F. Riley.

    I wrote a private message on the League blog but I don’t think I posted it right because I don’t think anyone’s seen it. I wrote to the members of our group that I’ve simplified how we manage the league blog. Basically, we no longer have to add new posts to it unless you happen to get a chance. I’ve noticed that there hasn’t been a lot of blogging on it and it may be because it’s a bit tiring to maintain multiple blogs. So I decided to make the blog more of a place where people can get info about our group, a sample of our work, and links to our personal blogs. Not too much different, just hopefully less time consuming. Every one in awhile, I’ll reblog stuff from each member’s personal blogs so readers can get more stuff from us without each of you needing to post unless you get a chance. How does that sound?

    Great, i just dis covered your site, we’ve come a long way bebe
    When younger people use to ask me what are you, polynesian, ieast inie, hawaian, siamese, pacific islander?, i’d reply i’m the pot that melted, as in america the great melting pot.
    Unlike my mum, who would say when showing photos of lily whit or native amer. family members and all who “passed” into the mainstream, “if you have one drop your black, i refuse to deny any of my bloodline- hebrew-african eur-asian( the native americans considered asian, although were until mixed – very “negroid appearing pacific islanders types).
    For the past 35yrs. i have quietly litigated my “New root race” heritage by checking all applicable boxes on all leal forms, applications etc. (the clerk often changes them – in front of me)
    I was reared in both worlds in cleveland ohio in the 50s,60s, thus loved and abused by all three species; it was when my sisters by another mother became of age and were so lost as to whom they belonged, because to be ‘accepted” in both-all the groups you have to deny one and beccome locked into whatever the current mindset/agenda of the groups priorities, and i have always refused, We are Not a Fixee people-as are many, WE are fluid, a bridge to all peoples, our reason for being brought forth at this time.
    My spelling has become horrid due to blood glucose issues, and i’m too old to care, so bear w/ me, as typing is not my forte’
    schell and i’m lazy.lol

    I created a petition on change.org to my local school district to remove the song “Pick o’ bale o’ cotton” from the 7th grade curriculum. They said no. They also said that my biracial son could be excused from class while the rest of the class 99% White students sang the song without him. And they also told me that there is nothing wrong with the song because it is just a song workers sang to make their work less tedious. http://www.change.org/petitions/oshkosh-area-school-district-remove-the-song-pick-a-bale-of-cotton-from-the-curriculum

      Also, Steven F. Riley of MixedRaceStudies.org does not consider himself mixed 🙂
      And actually, I consider myself mixed – just a different kind of mix 🙂
