Biracial Family Twitter Party! - Come ask, learn, share and enjoy!

We have so many multiracial families and we are all trying to make our way as a family unit in a society that doesn't readily embrace what it deems non - traditional. I know many of us have our joys and struggles and even questions, so come join the party and let's talk. Anyone can come and learn and take part.

Where: Online via Twitter
Date:  March 26, 2010
Time: 9pm-10pm EST
Hosts: @euphorialuv , @Quiskaeya and @Jamericanspice

Topic: Teaching Biracial Children About their Identity

Purpose: To provide parents & biracials an opportunity to talk about biracial identity to help build a stronger multiracial/multicultural community. Some questions open for discussion are:
  1. As a parent of a biracial how do you help your child self-identify? Ex: books, events, playgroups etc
  2. If your child chose one identity over another would it offend you?
  3. Are your children equally accepted by both sides of the family?
  4. Do you feel the one drop rule is still widely thought and accepted with regards to biracials?
  5. Do you consider how society will identify your child? Does this effect how you teach your biracial child to self-identity?

RSVP: http://twtvite.com/6a0u27

Even if you do not have a twitter account you can still join the conversation. The discussion will stream through tweetchat (http://tweetchat.com). You can set up an account with them and jump right into the action.

To participate be sure to follow @euphorialuv , @Quiskaeya and @Jamericanspice. Also be sure to tweet with the hashtag #BiracialFamily between 9:00 and 10:00 p.m. EDT.

Please feel free to spread the word to other multiracial/multicultural groups. Hope that you will join in for a time of learning and sharing.

  2. Wow, these are questions that I have asked myself and have tried to work through, great stuff.

    It does matter and it should be discussed.
