Trigger warning: image contains experiences of racism:
Let’s talk about being mixed race.
‘What are you?’ is a question that is asked all too often when people can’t quite put their finger on ‘what’ we are.
Of course, it’s a pretty objectifying question- I’m a who, not a what.
Sometimes people even suggest that mixed race people will ‘bring the world together’.
Yeah, that’s not how it works.
The drawing above illustrates some of the all-too-common experiences of racism, and hopefully some of the complexity of being mixed race.
