Repost @chellyjin
Maria PP Root created a Bill of Rights for People of Mixed Heritage.
In response, I created 100 handmade letter-pressed cards of my favorite 4 statements to share.
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 identity myself differently than how my parents identity me
* to identify myself differently than 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 identify with more than one group of people
* to freely choose whom I befriend and love
