Check out this article about the mixed race movement in the New York Times. It highlights the efforts of mixed race youth in defining their identity and calling for a celebration of ethnic diversity. I think the ending quote from the student president of this college’s Multiracial and Biracial Student Association is very telling of the attitude of young mixed people today:
“I don’t want a color-blind society at all,” Ms. Wood said. “I just want both my races to be acknowledged.”

I thought this was a really interesting article, too. I didn’t quite agree with everything, but it was great food for thought!
