Bill of Rights for Racially Mixed People
By Maria P.P. Root

 

I HAVE THE RIGHT...

-Not to justify my existence in this world. 
-Not to keep the races separate within me. 
-Not to be responsible for people's discomfort with my physical ambiguity. 
-Not to justify my ethnic legitimacy.

I HAVE THE RIGHT...


-To identify myself differently than strangers expect me to identify.
-To identify myself differently from how my parents identify me.
-To identify myself differently from my brothers and sisters.
-To identify myself differently in different situations.

I HAVE THE RIGHT...


-To create a vocabulary to communicate about being multiracial.
-To change my identity over my lifetime -- and more than once.
-To have loyalties and identification with more than one group of people.
-To freely choose whom I befriend and love
