Bi-Racial…Tri-Racial… And the American Melting Pot

Herman Cain says that racism isn’t a significant factor in America anymore. Unfortunately, like much of what Mr Cain claims about race (and politics) in America, that isn’t true.

What is true is that race, and racism in America, sans a few Tea Party bigots, has become far less “in your face” – thanks to the many black and white folks (unlike Mr Cain) who marched, and after the marching was over – chose to live their lives rejecting one of the the very core premises of the founding America…race.

This family’s experiences aren’t any different than a majority of mixed race families in America, where their children struggle with a sense of belonging, acceptance – and sometimes the racism of their peers and peer’s parents.

In Strangers’ Glances at Family, Tensions Linger

The question tore through Heather Greenwood as she was about to check out at a store here one afternoon this summer. Her brown hands were pushing the shopping cart that held her babbling toddler, Noelle, all platinum curls, fair skin and ice-blue eyes.

The woman behind Mrs. Greenwood, who was white, asked once she realized, by the way they were talking, that they were mother and child. “It’s just not possible,” she charged indignantly. “You’re so…dark!”

It was not the first time someone had demanded an explanation from Mrs. Greenwood about her biological daughter, but it was among the more aggressive. Shaken almost to tears, she wanted to flee, to shield her little one from this kind of talk. But after quickly paying the cashier, she managed a reply. “How come?” she said. “Because that’s the way God made us.” Read the rest of this entry »

Bi-racial… Y’er A**

Playa Play-on… Indeed.

Nature’s Latest Creation – the Zedonk

This week, the Chestatee Wildlife Preserve in north Georgia, United States, welcomed the first zebra-donkey hybrid in America. The “zedonk” has a donkey for a mother and a zebra stallion for a father and it is quite a rare animal.

// <![CDATA[//

The animal is a mix between a zebra and donkey. With black stripes prominently displayed on her legs and face, her zebra heritage is readily apparent, but her slender face and spindly legs are more donkey-like.

Preserve keepers were rather surprised when the new “baby” was born. But contrary to what people might think, this is not the first time this has happened in the world. Apparently in 2005, a zebra gave birth to a zedonk in Barbados, and three zedonks were born in a European zoo, back in the 1970s, from a female donkey.

White tigers are more of our calling card, but this is one of the most unique animals that has ever been born here,” C.W. Wathen, the preserve’s general manager and founder said. “The animals have been running (in the fields) together for more than 40 years, but this is the first time that this has happened here. We never suspected that they (had mated), so it was quite a surprise when the zedonk was born.”

Actress Says “Biracial” is Offensive

Actress Paula Patton Says The Term “Biracial” Is Offensive

In a recent interview with Women’s Health magazine, actress Paula Patton spoke about her mixed background and her identity, She told them:

I find (the term) biracial offensive, it’s a way for people to separate themselves from African-Americans, a way of saying I’m better than that. I’m Black because that’s the way the worlds sees me. People aren’t calling Obama biracial. Most people think there’s a Black president.
