Mixed Race With an Ethical Obligation to Identify as Black

  Broadcast in Entertainment

Call in to speak with the host

In this episode we will discuss an New York Times entitled, "As Black as We Wish to Be" written by Thomas Chatterton Williams and published on March 16, 2012. 

In his article, Thomas states that "Mixed-race blacks have an ethical obligation to identify as black — and interracial couples share a similar moral imperative to inculcate certain ideas of black heritage and racial identity in their mixed-race children, regardless of how they look."

We want to know what you think. We will be discussing this article with Sociologist & Professor Cheryl King and want to know your opinion: Do all mixed race people have an ethical obligation to self-identify as black even if they have no cultural connection or association with either or both of the racial subcultures of their parents?

Join us on Wednesday March 21 from 12:00-12:30pm to discuss this interesting and controversial topic.
