Multiracial Parents

Will the children of multiracial people be subject to forms of racial prejudice and discrimination? How do parents teach their children about the realities of race and prepare them to deal with potential forms of discrimination and denigration? Existing studies of mixed people in Britain rarely explicitly address their experiences of racial stigmatization or denigration, and even less is known about how they, as parents, regard the racialized experiences of their children. In this chapter, I examine how multiracial participants’ own experiences of racism (or lack thereof) influence their expectations and concerns about how their own children are treated in the wider society. This chapter also documents the ways in which parents foster racial awareness and coping.
