We probably see it everyday but do we really put any deep thought into it? We have not one but two White mothers of Black children to share with us their challenges, issues, triumphs and disappointments of raising their biracial children. These two women are Patty Candell and Leah Wagner and they are gonna put us onto a perspective that is rarely considered by the browner side of us. Well, maybe it is considered but other shows don't have the balls to do it like Urban Therapy with SUN will.

Do we care about their challenges? Are we aware of their challenges? Do we consider the way that they raise children who look like us to be the same way that we raise our children? Do they feed their kids the same things that we eat? How do they deal with disciplining their children? Is it all calm talk, reasoning and time outs?
How do they do their daughter's hair? Where do they get their son's hair cut? What happens when their children ask what race they are and why mommy and daddy look so different? What happens when deeper cultural, heritage and identity questions and issues arise should they come up? How do White mothers deal with their children's peer pressure to date, dress, talk and act BLACK so to speak? What happens if they talk WHITE?
How does the White mother handle the looks and stares that some may give when they go to register their children for school or when they have to interact with other parents who have not been in interracial relationships and may be negatively judgemental about this?

On this show we will hear firsthand the way that a White woman feels when she is around Black women who may feel some kind of way about them "taking" their Black men and if that is even the case?
