“I never thought I’d find so many people who get these jokes and understand what it’s like to be mixed.”
“Exploring what it means to be “mixed” by questioning, redefining ourselves, and celebrating the beauty of multiethnic identities.”
Visiting this blog in particular is always an enriching experience. There are always well-researched stories that deal with mixed people or people of color throughout history scattered around the world – you can find yourself in these stories from decades or even centuries ago and feel a sense of pride in shared multiracial experiences.
Now this one is a personal blog by a beautiful 21 year old mixie named Lyann who shares her life story as well as those of others through reblogged photos, gifs and article snippets relating to all our mixed up experiences.

How the 4 moderators describe their site: “This is a blog for those of us who are forgotten in the mainstream anti-racism movement. Those of us who are biracial, multiracial, and multiethnic and have struggled year after year with establishing our identities. This is a safe space for all mixed people of color..
This space encourages stories, submissions, art, poetry, photos, research, links to articles, questions, and whatever else you would like to submit!
We hope to create a space that highlights that not every person of color is monoracial and not every problem we face can be looked at through a monoracial lens.”
We love this site. We love our curls! No matter your curl pattern or texture, this site celebrates us all and plainly shows how beautiful diversity truly is!
