As a Transracial Adoptee, I Wish My White Parents had Talked to me about Race

This article speaks to “color blindness”, the problematic racial stance that doesn’t see someone for their whole being. The author explains their experience as an Asian American woman being raised by white parents and how she had to navigate many identity hurdles on her own. As the idea of Critical Race Theory being taught in schools is brought into question in our country, this article spoke to how her and her sister would have greatly benefitted from open communication about who they are racially to help her navigate life in her adolescence and adulthood.
