Welcome to Mixed Up, a series looking at the highs, lows and unique experiences of being mixed-race. Mixed-race is the fastest-growing ethnic group in the UK. It means your parents hail from two or more different ethnicities, leaving you somewhere in the middle.
The term mulatto is now chiefly considered to be derogatory or offensive.
When I was in my early 30s, I started making a list of every child I could think of who had a black parent and a white parent and was born between and the mid- to late s. It was a collection of people like me, who grew up and came of age after the Supreme Court decision in that overturned the laws in more than a dozen states that outlawed interracial marriage. I was thinking of people I knew or had heard of, so of course the list included actors like Tracee Ellis Ross born and Rashida Jones ; athletes like Derek Jeter and Jason Kidd ; singers like Mariah Carey and Alicia Keys ; and, eventually, politicians and public servants like Adrian Fenty and Ben Jealous It made sense: The people I could think of were the people who were the most publicly visible.
