beeduh - I hope you didn't think my comment was directed toward you! omg - that is so not what I meant. Absolutely not - in any way. I loved what you wrote, and it gave me a new way of understanding why others may be curious about heritage. Our current pathetic political climate is making everybody a little paranoid, I think, myself included. When I read your post I realized that in a "melting pot", everyone should take an interest in the history and stories of others. When you said how a lady asked your husband if he was mixed, I saw it as a way of connection; breaking down the ridiculous barriers set in place by colonialists.

I'm sad that you live in a place where race is a "huge issue", because that sounds like there are a lot of difficulties and pain, and you are obviously way above that nonsense. You're a classy woman with beautiful curls!
