On Parenting and Race

The interview includes some solid advice for parents raising children of all racial and ethnic backgrounds. This is part one of a four-part series of interviews.

  • Great interview. Totally agree with the kid part. Parents just don’t talk to their children about race. Maybe they just don’t think it’s an issue. I was a pretty confused child growing up. When I was very small I ran to my (Mexican) grandmothers house and yelled “Grandma, grandma…Nella (my older sister) is playing with Mexicans!!!” She asked me what I thought I was, and I told her I was white. I had no clue I was half Mexican.
