As a professor and author who studies diversity and communication, not to mention a multiracial individual and future parent, I'm interested mostly in what's hiding behind questions like "what are you, exactly?"
I'm used to checking "other" to describe myself. Still, imagine my surprise -- not at the recent headline that interracial marriages are at an all-time high -- but that my marriage is included among them.
It is easy to see how making racial victims or racial healers out of multiracial people really only serves to let everyone else off the hook. We as a society need to realize that racial reconciliation is everybody's job.
