NY Times: Young and Mixed in America

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.”
