Interesting piece! I am curious, however, how kids like Shea’s and mine own (who are also biracial) will view themselves as they grow into there own. As a Chicano I am proud of my heritage and am blessed to be able to impart the culture to my children. Yet, kids from biracial homes have a dual identity and it seems (at least to me) that one portion of their birthed DNA gets suppressed. This reality sadden’s my heart as I think of my own children neglecting either the culture of their mother or of their brown skinned taco loving father. Not sure how Kaep truly defines his own cultural identity and I do not wish to assume. I do know though, that in our biracial home, different perspectives are voiced, at times misunderstood, and ultimately considered. For this reason, I feel that each member of our household is better at viewing the deeply layered world and hopefully more apt to be understanding and considerate to all — especially to those whom we may disagree with.
