    No - I was not saying that you thought I was his wife, I knew that you were asking about me being his sister. I was trying to let you know that I am a Johnson

      I was trying to let you know that I am a Johnson by marriage,
      and the Johnson I am married to is "full" Black :)
      I did look him up after you sent me the
      e-mail, looks like a good read.

      Hi, Trisha. I was thinking maybe your were Mat Johnson's sister,
      not his wife b/c he's married to a "full" Black woman.
      But anyway, for those of you who haven't heard
      of the novelist, Mat Johnson, he's really good!
      I highly recommend his book, Hunting In Harlem.
      He writes with real insight, and humor.

      Trisha, you wouldn't happen to be
      related to the novelist, Mat Johnson?
      I ask b/c he is also biracial.
      Although, this may be a silly question since Johnson
      is one of the most common names in the U.S.

      Good evening,

      My name is Denise Baker and I am a senior currently attending Kean
      University in New Jersey. I am of biracial descent, as my mom is
      Swiss and my dad, African American. I am writing to ask for your
      help with a survey I am conducting of biracial persons in America
      and their thoughts on biracialism as its own race. I am taking a
      poll to determine whether or not there is a need and a desire among
      the biracial community to be specified as such on the US Census.

      In an effort to collect this data, I will send you a copy of my
      questionnaire. All information received will be held in the
      strictest of confidence. Please note that I am being guided through
      this process by my Sociology professor, Dr. Francis Naughton,
      former Chair of the Anthropology and Sociology Department
      who can be reached at fnaughton@ or 908-737-4055.

      Feel free to contact either myself
      or my professor with any questions.

      Thank you for your time and assistance with this matter.

      Respectfully,
      Denise Baker
