Have you seen the organic section in your local supermarket? The ethnic section?

HumaniTeens: Biracial Students Share Their PerspectivesAugust 24, 2017
In this growing international community, biracial and intercultural relationships have skyrocketed. The amount of people who are biracial is at an all time high. However, these students face conflicting issues of identity and acceptance from an early age. Racial tensions within America have contributed to a rough experience. Additionally, within the families, there is a matter of acceptance from both sides. We spoke to three biracial students in an attempt to more deeply understand the struggles they experience as young Americans.
