About This Blog
This page was born in late May 2010. I didn't research it, or exactly plan it, and I'm no expert; I just jumped in. Learn more by reading from one of my first posts. I began by including topics on this page as part of my Knoxville Mamabelle blog, but doing so was not in the best interests of readers unless they happened to be similar to me--interested in both couponing/saving money AND in biracial and interracial topics. Unlikely! Eventually, I will repost the topics from Knoxville Mamabelle and move them here, but until then, you can read them here on Knoxville Mamabelle.

I do not believe in "race" as a biological phenomenon. I believe it to be a complete social construct. I will write about that in the future, but for now, I just want to make sure readers know that I only use terminology such as "white," "black," "Asian" so that we can communicate.
Some people feel strongly that we should abandon even these kinds of discussion and only discuss being human, but I find that to be a stifling viewpoint. How can we discuss the implications if we can't say the words? For example, some people don't want to ever hear or see the word "nigger," me included, but that doesn't change the fact that it's splattered all over some of my favorite literature, or that I've been called one. It's ugly, but it's the reality we live in.
