Anonymous asked: Is it rough for mixed children to grow up in america? I ask because My girlfriend and I may be expecting and I just want to know what to expect.
You could also just read the blog, like mixed people from all over (including mixed people from America) are participating here. The childhood tag was literally right in our sidebar, please don’t treat us like google.
And not only that, are you living under a rock? Have you seen any news coming out of America right now? Is it not really obvious that America has a GIANT problem with racism? How could a child of colour not be affected by racism in America? Even if you don’t pay attention to current events in America, look at any American made media meant for children and you’ll immediately see an extreme lacking in representation for children of colour. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg, children of colour are forced to mature and learn about racism 1000x earlier than their white peers (if their white peers even learn about racim (doubtful tbh)). - Melody
