The Bi-Racial Tag

Posted by Jack Stephens on April 2, 2007

Rachel, in her blog Rachel’s Tavern, writes about her dissertation and arguments against her dissertation concerning racial identity and multi-racial people:

Dave’s belief is that mixed race people mixed ancestry should organize their own groups, and they should see themselves as distinction from African Americans. I have no objection to organizing some multiracial groups, but I also thinking that many of the needs, concerns, and issues overlap with those of other people of color. Personally, I do not think it would be beneficial to try to create a new racial group akin to the “colored’ population in South Africa.

The Black Baby “Mistake”

Posted by ritualground on March 24, 2007

Over at Racialicious, Carmen discusses a lawsuit resulting from an error at a fertility clinic. From the New York Post excerpt:

A Park Avenue fertility clinic’s blunder has left a family devastated – after a black baby was born to a Hispanic woman and her white husband, the couple charges in a lawsuit. The mistake, made during in-vitro conception, wasn’t discovered until Jessica Andrews was born – and it became clear she didn’t look anything like her mom, Nancy, or dad, Thomas, the suit says.

As Carmen points out, one can only guess what future effect this legal action will have on the child:

Wonder how Jessica is going to feel when she grows up knowing that her darker skin caused such panic for her parents, and landed her family on front-page news.

Mixed Race Movement

Posted by Jack Stephens on February 27, 2007

Marco Hewitt blogs about his discovery of a mixed race movement in the United States:

Since I’ve been here in the US, I’ve discovered that there is actually a Mixed Race movement here. Wow! I was so impressed when I first heard about it. We need that shit in Australia. I would love for there to be a forum where mixed race youths can get together and discuss their identities, and bring their unique subjectivities into the realm of grassroots activism.
