Radio Thursday: Yes, He’s Mine

We’re taking a break from Thursday videos this week, and listening to the radio instead! NPR’s Tell Me More has a great segment in which several mothers of multiracial children share their personal experiences being asked if those are their kids, or if they’re the nanny or babysitter. It’s a great piece, so check it out:

I think one of the most interesting things is the difference in the experiences of the white mother and the mothers of color: “where do you get them?” versus “are you looking for more work?”
