An article in Salon reports

An article in Salon reports that California now has more mixed-race children than Black or Asian children. As one University of California administrator points out, that makes checking the "race" box on government forms absurd or impossible for many people. Richard Rodriguez, one of my favorites essayists, was recently interviewed on the Lehrer News Hour about his book Brown, about growing up not falling into the black-or-white racial categories that America has defined, and how more and more we are becoming a nation of brown people. Anyway, we clearly still have a ways to go in accepting people of mixed races for what they are.
