  •  I was thinking of any children my sister may have (10+ / 0-)

    Her husband is hispanic, his mother from el salvador and his father from mexico, both immigrants and both very in touch with their culture (his mother doesn't speak any english, his father some.)  One of her husband's sisters lives in Germany.  I live in New Zealand and am am proud of the integration of Maori and Pakeha culture, that should be a role model for the US.  My family is of european mutt variety (with strong irish dominance) however my father was born and raised on the Zuni reservation and I was born while my parents were living on the Navajo reservation.  Respect and reverence for these cultures was always emphasized in our house, as well as an understanding of the dominant european culture and the effect it had on other cultures.  My father knows more about being zuni then he ever would know about being irish.

    My sisters children (should she have any) will not be "bi-racial" (I'm not using that as a derogatory term.)  They will be multi-cultural, which I think is an extremely good thing for this world.
