"This is the place where no man or woman judges by race ... In this planet, racism doesn't even exist ... Who cares if you're Asian, African, Caucasian, etc.? Heck, we're so color blind here that we dont even pay attention that at all! That's why we all get along so well on this planet."

Heather Young's Homepage on Interracial Relationships 2001 Oct 03
"The topic I have chosen to research for my fall assignment is interracial relationships. It is a social issue that interests me because of how it affects society and how it affects me personally. This is important to me because I am currently involved in an interracial relationship that has progressed over the past two years. Interracial relationships reflect society's culture and values, and I thought it would be interesting to explore other people's views on this controversial topic. More specifically, I wanted to learn what factors lead people to become involved in interracial relationships. I wanted to see how the opinions of society affect the couples' relationships. I also wanted to explore the comparisons that couples make between interracial and non-interracial relationships."

Mothering without a Compass 2001 Jan 26
"In 1997, Becky Thompson began parenting nine-year-old Adrian at the request of his mother, and her life changed forever. Mothering without a Compass is the moving story of her first year as the white lesbian "sudden-mother" of an African-American boy. From the everyday yet sometimes overwhelming tasks of finding Adrian a school and debating the significance of action figures, to unexpected discussions about who pays whom at the sperm bank, to the more complicated matters of racism, sexuality, nontraditional families, open adoption, love, and loss, Thompson gives us an absorbing and often humorous account of her attempt at antiracist, multicultural parenting."

Cihldren's and Young Adult Books with Interracial Family Themes 2000 May 09
"Some children of mixed-racial descent identify themselves as members of one group or another. Some proudly proclaim their multiracial identities. And still others switch their declarations at different times in their lives. When you think about, even those who aren't of mixed descent have some diversity somewhere in their family. At most, it's just a question of degree. And ever more families are adopting children of different hues, both from their own home countries and internationally. Many of these parents and grandparents make that extra effort to offer children the gifts and insights of their own cultures while respecting and fostering a sense of appreciation for the child's own ethnic culture and country of birthday. As the population increases, we've seen a slight growth in the number of children's and young adult books published that explore mixed-race family themes. However, the need persists and will grow with each passing generation."

What Are You? 2000 May 09
"... is the result of Pearl Gaskins's years of in-depth interviews with eighty mixed-race young people. In their own words -- which are at times defiant, humorous, and insightful -- they address issues such as dating, family life, prejudice, and racial identity. At the same time, they celebrate the unique hope and possibilities that come from living life in multicolors and multicultures. Combining interviews with poems, essays, and insights from experts, What Are You? reveals what it means to be living proof that America's ideas about race make no sense. The book includes an extensive bibliography, resource guide, and photographs of young people who contributed."

Blind Heart 2000 May 05
"We know how hard it is to find products for interracial and ethnic weddings and special occasions,first hand. After planning our own wedding, we were inspired by the difficulty we experienced in finding an interracial caketop. We also noticed the lack of caketops and accessories representing the various ethnicities and their traditions. As a result, we decided to provide a central place for people to obtain these items. A place where people can feel secure that the product they select will not only be of quality, but also an elegant reflection of who they are. Blind Heart specializes in caketops, accessories and favors for interracial and ethnic weddings, as well as, for such events as Las Quinceaneras." 2000 Mar 11
