Going Back Like Babies and Pacifiers; Why I Love Mariah

Sometimes it’s hard to tell who is a bigger hater on mixed people, white people or unmixed people of color. The predicament of mixedys is we’re either justifying our presence to the people of color caucus or we’re being melted down by the casual racism of white people. Equal parts humiliating.  Whatever, potatoes gonna potate.

As I began to learn that I didn’t have to be either white or Asian, as I was learning that it was ok to just be everything that I am, I listened to The Emancipation of Mimi on loop.

I had a similar relationship with Nicole Richie and The Simple Life.
