Come Join the Biracial Family Twitter Party

Join Us for Our Biracial Family Twitter Party


Place: Online via Twitter

Date: Friday, March 26, 2010

Time: 9p-10p EST

Hosts: @euphorialuv , @Quiskaeya and @Jamericanspice

Topic: Teaching Biracial Children About their Identity. We hope all multiracial families (Black, Asian, Latin, White, Other) will join us as we discuss political, social and parenting issues related to being a biracial or parenting a biracial.

Purpose: To provide parents & biracials an opportunity to talk about biracial identity to help build a stronger multiracial/multicultural community. Some questions open for discussion are:
  1. As a parent of a biracial how do you help your child self-identify? Ex: books, events, playgroups etc
  2. If your child chose one identity over another would it offend you?
  3. Are your children equally accepted by both sides of the family?
  4. Do you feel the one drop rule is still widely thought and accepted with regards to biracials?
  5. Do you consider how society will identify your child? Does this effect how you teach your biracial child to self-identity?

RSVP: http://twtvite.com/6a0u27

Even if you do not have a twitter account you can still join the conversation. The discussion will stream through tweetchat (http://tweetchat.com). You can set up an account with them and jump right into the action.

To participate be sure to follow @euphorialuv , @Quiskaeya and @Jamericanspice. Also be sure to tweet with the hashtag #BiracialFamily between 9:00 and 10:00 p.m. EDT.

Please feel free to spread the word to other multiracial/multicultural groups. Hope that you will join in for a time of learning and sharing.

Looks good. By not taking the name off the image , aren't we giving them props? Isn't that how it works? Or should it not be on the photo?

I don't see anything wrong with it unless they have a problem with us using their images.
