Multiracial Parents synopsis
Views and experiences of multi-ethnic persons as parents The world's multi-ethnic population is one of the fastest growing groups of all ethnic groups. In the United States alone, it is estimated that more than 20% of the population will be considered "mixed sex" by 2050.
Public figures - such as former President Barack Obama and Hollywood actress Ruth Nigga - highlight more diverse backgrounds of those classified under the term "multi-ethnic "He said. Multi-ethnic parents consider how parents who are mixed with their cultural backgrounds are attracted to their children's education and socialization.
Mary Sung offers a pioneering research on how to pass the meanings and practices surrounding the definition of multi-ethnic across generations. A multicolored image of how multi-ethnic identity is transmitted and not transmitted to children, multi-national parents focus on single-white and other non-white couples, often the "mixed first generation", placing their findings in a transatlantic context.
Drawing on a detailed account of the lives of parents and family life, this book explores what it means to be multi-ethnic, and whether identity and multi-ethnic status will be of importance to the children of multi-ethnic peoples. Many couples suggested that their presence (and their children) was a step towards breaking the boundaries over the meaning of race and that the idea of mixed populations in race became more normal, despite existing concerns about racism and racial prejudice within and outside different societies.
From a critical perspective to contemporary multi-ethnic families, multi-ethnic parents raise fundamental questions about the future importance of racial boundaries and identities.
