A light brown child ... right? Why is this?
I spoke to someone last night who claims dual heritage and who also objects to the term being used. He said the reason was that it causes more discrimination for his daughter (who incidentally does fit the image that may have popped into your mind upon hearing that phrase); nevertheless he himself is dual heritage.
His father is Polish and his mother is English. He is what most people would term ‘white’.
What? You many protest. That doesn’t count. If not, why not?
Or are all terms of identity, apart from the term ‘human being’ used to further separated, delineate and decimate social cohesion even further?
