A feature in National Geographic‘s October 125th anniversary issue looks at the changing face of America in an article by Lise Funderburg, with portraits of multiracial families by Martin Schoeller, that celebrates the beauty of multiracial diversity and shows the limitations around our current categories when talking about race.
In many ways race is about difference and how those differences are codified through language, categories, boxes, segmentation, and even the implicit sorting that goes on in our heads in terms of the way we label others and even ourselves. Appearance and identity are most certainly linked when it comes to racial categories, but there is another important ingredient in that stew: Experience. For three years now I have been collecting stories about race and cultural identity on the Race Card Project, and it has provided a window into society like no other I’ve ever experienced in more than three decades of working as a journalist. More amazing is how the exercise, over time, has opened a window for people to share much more than just their six words about who they are and what they are feeling.
The Pew study found that among newlyweds in 2010, 36 percent of Asian women married outside their race, compared with 17 percent of Asian men.
The six-word tales that have poured into the Race Card Project create a portal that allows us to dive beyond the surface into the deeply nuanced issues of racial ambiguity and cultural identity. There are also those who don various identities based on convenience, advantage, or comfort. Blue-eyed teenagers who grow outsize afros to win easy (or at least easier) acceptance on the basketball court.
Asians with Irish last names who delight at seeing the faces of potential employers when they show up for job interviews.
I’ve been in journalism long enough to know that people who are exceedingly happy with their lot in life are less likely to share their stories if given the chance. I think of the six words submitted by Phyllis Kedl, of Minneapolis, who could not be more proud of her multiethnic brood that includes fourteen grandkids, only five of whom are ethnically related to Phyllis and her husband. If you don’t know what I am talking about, think about the phrase “post-racial,” with its suggestion that we could take some kind of express elevator up to the top floor where the view was great, the air was clear, and no one would make you feel icky or uncomfortable.
In any case, Ali Berlinski says she uses prickly humor to talk about her eclectic upbringing. Navigating cultures is something that National Geographic and the Race Card Project have in common, and we want to include you in our journey to better understand the changing face of America. Michele Norris is a host and special correspondent for NPR and the curator of the Race Card Project. What I don’t understand is how someone can cry over what box to tick about their race, get over yourself.
I alwas thought for the longest time that I was purely black, as I knew superficially that both my mom and dad were black. I am glade that the census show that blacks are still marrying blacks but interacial marriages is on the rise .Men care less than women when it come to the race mixing it is rising with females to. As much as I like this piece, and I really do think that it along with The Race Card Project really hit the nail on its head when discussing how nuanced race is, I wish there was more emphasis on ethnic identification and how that in itself is a manifestation of race. I’ve been considered Rwandan (I am currently in Rwandan), Burundian (because I speak French), Congolese (again because I speak French), Ugandan (because I speak English in a non-Anglophone country), Kenyan, even French Guyanese (because I was black), Surinamese (because I spoke English and was black), Guyaneses (because I was a black anglophone), Brazilian, and last but not least Trinidadian. Like I said, I bring this up just to illustrate that it is not only people who are visibily racially ambiguous who feel the identity struggle. I am white meaning Scottish, Irish, German, American Indian…and other things I am sure.
Yet, people tend to think I’m Persian, or Lebanese, or Syrian, Middle Eastern in general. Here in the US people are like i am irish, i am cuban, i am jewish, i am strong black woman, i am puerto rican, i am white.
Race; each of the major divisions of mankind, each having distinct physical characteristics. I hate it when people say mixed is better, when you’re more likely to be fetishized and pushed away by your own culture(s), not to mention you experience racism from more than one race in different ways.
A great man, but we should never forget his descendants, one of whom was a successful businessman and did well during the US Civil War – Colonel John Wayles Jefferson.
My mother was an award winning Siberian husky, and my father was a flea bitten Labrador mix, I was adopted from a pound to a family who adores my mixes heritage.
My paternal grandmother was said to have really dark parents, both of whom were part Jewish and part African. The New York Times had an article some years back about doctors treating patients and subscribing medication based on race. My nine yrs old son is mix of Turkish ( Georgian, Russian, Turkish) and Italian (Jewish, Portugese, Italian) he has light skin but not fair and getting tanned very easy, has high cheek bones and slightly slant eyes but looks like a one line when he smiles :)) also tall for his age. I have brown skin, type 4 hair, and was born in America so automatically people will call me African-American though I in no way identify with or hold the same cultural values from any group of people belonging to one of the countries in Africa.

Identity is not always a concrete concept but rather something that is situational, or shifting, based on time, place, growth, or circumstance.

Those who have something to get off their chest are more likely to sidle up to the keyboard.
In matters of romance, I have also repeatedly heard the phrase that “the heart perhaps is the last frontier,” with the idea that a rainbow generation would lead us to a promised land where race was at least less prickly than it’s been in the past. We want to see and hear how you identify yourself in terms of culture, race, or even region. Please read the book Working Toward Whiteness – How America’s Immigrants Became White – The Strange Journey from Ellis Island to the Suburbs by David R. Check out the human genome project and genetic research which have scientifically proven that races do not exist.
Also, remember “whiteness,” like “race,” is a human invention created and perpetuated by society. I want to live and associate with my own tribe and have my children and grandchildren look like me as well as have them be self-sufficient, hard-working individuals that grow up with values and a sense of tradition. Homo sapien is one species (out of other homo groups now extinct) with varying geographical adaptations and even more cultural (group rules) variations.

Ninety-nine percent of the time, our outward physical appearance provides neither a benefit nor disadvantage in nature.

I will write about beautiful princesses, with pretty clothes, met prince charming, but every love story have their own challenges and flaws, every pretty things will have another sides which might be not so pretty. To put that in context, one of out of every seven new marriages is among people of different racial backgrounds. But the six-word stories present a broad mosaic that informs us in these times and will serve as an amazing archive in the future as we try to understand the years when America was steaming toward a majority-minority status. Nina Boyd Krebs, whose book of the same title explores how people form diffuse cultural boundaries in the new Global Frontier. At one point, a shoe store manager assumed she was Hispanic and fussed at her for not knowing her own language.
It heralds progress but not without pain for those who live on the knife-edge of multiple cultures. To insist otherwise is to dismiss the observations, views, and experiences of the thousands of people who have shared their stories with me.
Differences in these [abstract] concepts can manifest as a simple slur all the way to genocide. What I don’t understand is why people keep referring to me and my children as looking Asian because my eyes are slightly almond shape.

That will become evident if you spend any time scrolling through the stories that my project, the Race Card, has received. Do you have siblings who identify themselves in different ways, even though your biracial background is the same?

As Anglo-Saxons migrated from the German Angles and Saxon tribes west to the British Isles. Everyone is made up of the various people their families have married and produced children with over the entire history of this planet.
I did learn one thing the stats show even though white men do not marry black a lot but when they do it last the most than any other race they never talk about that race mix ,that when they do it last not so much with black men and white women are divorcing the most Asainsbmix race couples divorce a lot check the stats I did .
