I was listening to a discussion today on opb about how portland, oregon is pretty gosh darn white-washed. i'm a transplant here (portland) and am half white and half mexican. i found that in california, where i grew up, i never fit in completely with one side or the other, socially or even in my extended family. all types were around me but where i lived and went to school was mostly white, closely followed by mexican, then asian, then black.
i don't fit in that much here in portland much either. the mexicans are looked down on as illegal immigrants (i never heard so much disdain for mexicans in my life). the whites are scared of offending anyone not white, trying to be pc or whatever, and being totally stupid about it.
who's bi or multi-racial?
what are your experiences?
i dunno if i posted this in the right place, it didn't seem to fit anywhere else.
