Human Race

I listened to NPR this morning highlighting Michele Norris's "The Race Card Project".  Using six words distill your thoughts, experiences and observations about race.  The audio program  "When you are mixed race, Just one Box is not enough" was very moving - especially at the end when Dave Kung related his feeling about checking a race box.  "If you were told to chose just one - do you love your mother or your father what would you say? .......  Every time they said check one that's what they were asking me. 

I couldn't resist and submitted my (or should I say Susan's) six words on the web site:

"Check box "other" -  write in "Human Race".

PS.   I can tell my blogs are becoming redundant. See April  9, 2010  "Codes"
