An Open Letter to the Future Mixed-Race Generation

Appearance is always the first thing that people will see when they look at you and I could have never changed that.

“One-in-seven U.S. infants (14%) were multiracial or multiethnic in 2015, nearly triple the share in 1980, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of Census Bureau data”

“In 1980, 7% of all newlyweds were in an intermarriage, and by 2015, that share had more than doubled to 17%, according to a recently released Pew Research Center report. Both trends are likely spurred in part by the growing racial and ethnic diversity in the U.S.” (Pew Research Center, 2015)

Don’t lose sight of where you came from. Don’t lose sight of the past. It has made you who you are today.

“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” — Søren Kierkegaard
