Bill of Rights for Racially Mixed People

Authored by Maria P.P. Root

I HAVE THE RIGHT…

Not to justify my existence in this world. 
Not to keep the races separate within me. 
Not to be responsible for people’s discomfort with my physical ambiguity. 
Not to justify my ethnic legitimacy.

I HAVE THE RIGHT…

To identify myself differently than strangers expect me to identify.
To identify myself differently from how my parents identify me.
To identify myself differently from my brothers and sisters.
To identify myself differently in different situations.

I HAVE THE RIGHT…

To create a vocabulary to communicate about being multiracial.
To change my identity over my lifetime — and more than once.
To have loyalties and identification with more than one group of people.
To freely choose whom I befriend and love.
