Fitting in

1 Jul

I had the honor of being interviewed by Dr. Beth Erickson, host of “Relationships 101” the other day. She has a way of shedding light on some important but esoteric issues.
Mine of course, whcih we discussed deals with identity politics. The question raised for the segment dealt with “What if you descend from several cultural groups, and yet feel you don’t fit in anywehre?”

In my own personal experience of being Afro-Indian-I’ve been called “Heinz 57 varietes,” directly by the ill educated. And that is the key, the more information you have about the ancestral groups you descended from, the more you will feel comfortable with who you are.

I hope you’ll tune in on July 4th to listen to Dr. Beth expound on this issue. http://webtalkradio.net/shows/relationships-101/
