A few posts ago, I read a comment that included these words: "half breeds".
No, I am not rallying for angry responses because 1) it's obvious that there were no malicious intentions and 2) she may be referring to what OTHERS say. It wasn't clear as the words were not in quotation marks but I am not going to pretend to be a mind reader.
In fact, I should thank her since those words got me thinking about self-identifying labels for my biracial daughter and others like her.
Half. And other pesky fractions used to describe people. I get lost as the denominator gets larger and larger... it's what, 2, 4, 8, 16...? Isn't there a name for this kind of mathematical progression? I should know, right? Riiiiight.
Anyway. Back to the point of this post.
