Join us on WednesdayAugust 1, at 9 pm eastern with Professor Tanya Hernández, recently named to Fordham Law’s Archibald R. Murray Professorship. Her upcoming book, Multiracials and Civil Rights, shows that people of mixed race experience the same kind of discrimination as any other non-white person. That is, they suffer bias not because they’re multiracial, but because they’re perceived to be non-white. “Their personal racial identities are somewhat novel, but the discrimination they face is not,” says Hernández. “It’s still a skin-based hierarchy.”
