Okay I'm showing my pop culture roots, but it's for a good cause. The Benetton-ad-come-to-life couple, a.k.a. Seal and Heidi Klum, just announced they are expecting their second child. Why is this worthy of mention you ask? Well, the way I see it, since we are such a celebrity obsessed culture, believing in things only after Madonna or Britney or Julia Roberts deems them worthy, then we have to take note when the gliteratti do something that might be considered racially progressive. You know, like marry and procreate across racial and cultural lines...especially if they seem both happy and drug free.
Honestly, I don't put any hope or belief in the durability of Seal and Heidi Klum's holy union, nor should I put them on any kind of pedestal. By hooking up they didn't sign on to be the spokes-couple for multi-culti living, but at the very least they are giving a very public face to the melting-pot family. And maybe other folks will see them and realize that we can all just get along. Hey it could happen.
On the other hand, if you want some real spokespersons or support for your Rainbow-licious family, check out this organization I just stumbled on called the Mavin Foundation. They're all about empowerment and support of multi-culti families and individuals and they have a super-cool, informative and user-friendly site. Check the link on the side.
Peace Out !
