I am also dating a wonderful mixed man (Mexican and Irish)
and I so glad to be a part of this group.
I have like 3 other people that I can truly talk
to about issues of race and mixed heritage and it
makes me so happy that my circle has expanded.
I look forward to reading your emails and
having great conversations with all of you.
