MIXED RACE CHILDREN
One in ten British children now is mixed race and as some of you know my son is mixed race too. I'm from Hungary and his daddy is from Nigeria. When I look at my boy, I can see his beautiful brown skin that is darker than mine and his hair that is quite straight, not like most mixed race kids I know. Those kids have a slight curl/wave to their hair texture but they still share in the same ancestral history as other white people.
Apart from that I love the fact that my son has mixed heritage. I recently watched a documentary on Channel4 about mixed race people and I learnt the following:
"Mixed-race children make up one of the fastest growing ethnic minorities in the UK. According to some census experts the number of mixed-race people in Britain will double between 2001 and 2020, when demographers predict it will reach 1.3 million people.
Mixed-race people are among our most famous and high-achieving citizens - there's Sade Adu, Chuka Umunna, Lewis Hamilton and Leona Lewis to name a few.
The British regard people of mixed race as the most attractive and successful, say psychologists."
I like most of the points that they have raised in the documentary and I hope my son will feel blessed being mixed race and become as successful as he is attractive.
