Being Biracial in a One Race Society

By Amaya Lewis Web Content Contributor In society, when people first look at or meet one another, most people form a conclusive judgment within the first few seconds of interaction. For me, I know that feeling well. As a biracial American mixed with black and white, my darker complexion makes me an easy target against racial prejudice. When people look at me, they don’t see me, but rather my skin color; they see my pigment as a representation of everyone […]

A street in a well-kept suburban neighborhood taken at sunset. The colors in the sky blend between a pale orange, a pale pink and light blue with few clouds. There are cars or trucks in every driveway and there is a silver car parked on the right side of the road. Each yard also has a tree taller than the houses. On the right side of road, there is a boy in a red shirt on the sidewalk walking away from the camera.

They called it a celebration, bringing a happy community together over music they listened to when they were sad and alone. […]
