The fascination people have with finding out the race of your partner, and the assumptions they make based on that information are the subjects of Jen and Carmen’s joint rant in this episode.
MIXED MEDIA WATCH NEWS UPDATE
Jen and Carmen discuss three recent posts on their blog, Mixed Media Watch. First, Jen questions the premise behind a new book titled Breaking the Bamboo Ceiling: Career Strategies for Asians . Carmen discusses the case of an interracial family in a town near St. Louis, MO who are facing eviction because of a law that prohibits more than three people from living together unless they are related â€œby blood, marriage or adoption.â€ The couple is not married, but are raising 3 children and have been together for 13 years. Is this really about marriage, or about race? Finally, Jen discusses the racism that black athletes are facing from white fans in the World Cup .
