About

With me you never know what you’re going to get. As Forest Gump once said (paraphrasing, obvi), this blog “is like a box of chocolates.” I cover everything from race and pop culture to food and books with a little insight into my life and the inner workings of my mind in the middle just to keep things interesting.

Disclaimer: I welcome discussion and enjoy hearing the thoughts and perspectives of others, but miss me with the ignorance and any -isms you could possibly think of. I don’t have the time to entertain such foolishness and will delete any such comments with a quickness.

Disclaimer 2: I do not purport to speak for everybody or any group of people. I can only speak for myself and to my own experiences. If you “have a friend that’s [insert identity I happen to share with them],” don’t assume that my experiences will align with theirs. 

 

Welcome!

    Hi Molly!

    I have added your blog to my blog roll at Mixed American Life under the section ‘Zee Blogroll’ which is my catch all category.

    One article I’ve been looking to hear about is “Do Mixed People have Beauty Privilege?” And if so, what does that mean?
    I think a favorable bias for beauty is one of the least spoken about privileges even though it may be one of the most common.

    People say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, which has some truth, but also, the culture we live in pushes certain beauty standards over others.

    What do you think? Would that make a good article?

      I think that’d make a great article! I’ve often told people that I benefit greatly from beauty privilege, not because I’m stuck-up but because I acknowledge that I have been afforded certain opportunities and situations because of the way I look.

      As for mixed people having beauty privilege, overall I’d say yes simply because of the “exotic” label that society tends to place on those who don’t neatly fit into a box.
