Hi Meltingpot Readers,
I am entering the final week of writing madness. My manuscript for the updated version of Hair Story is due a week from today. Yikes! Please send me good writing vibes and any recipes to feed a family of five that requires exactly five minutes of prep time. Is it wrong to feed your kids a steady diet of sandwiches for dinner?
Meanwhile, speaking of families. Have you all seen the new website, We are the 15 Percent?” It’s actually a Tumblr site started by an interracial couple in response to the negative backlash to that adorable Cheerios ad. The website features photos of interracial families and simply exists to show the haters that multiracial families live, love and eat cereal just like everybody else. If you’re so inclined, send in your family photos. Or, if you’re like me, just use the site as a procrastination technique, scrolling through and looking at all the adorable pictures.
That is all.
