NY Times: Young and Mixed in America

News & Links

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.”
