Re: [Generation-Mixed] Re: Biracial Survey-Participation Greatly Needed!!
- 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 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.Trisha

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.

Johnson is my married name.
My maiden name is Suggs.
My husband is "full" Black :)
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.

I can help with your survey.
My mother is white and my father is black.
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.
