Welcome to My American Meltingpot. This is my space to devote to what is both my obsession and my life, those things called Race and Culture and Identity. I am a Black woman married to a Spanish man with two SpaNegro children. My best friend is half-Japanese and half Irish. My godchildren have a Kenyan mother and a Jewish father from Detroit. I used to live in Brooklyn where my son's pre-school playmates weren't considered normal if two languages weren't spoken in the home. I love this part of America. The funny thing is, usually Race and Culture and Identity are always considered PROBLEMS. And sometimes they are, but a lot of times they aren't. I'm here to chronicle them all, as I see fit.
Expect to find commentary on political events, news stories and my kids' playdates. I'll also throw in a book review, interview and maybe even an amazing photograph here and there. If, of course, I can figure out the technology of blogging. I'll admit this right now, I am a major technophobe, but I'm trying to turn away from my Luddite past. So let the games begin.
