Interview at Upper House

Ethnic identity is more than appearance. Much more. It is a confluence of ancestry, place, culture, and heart language. It is a mix of assertions and refutations—the discernment of what is true for the self and push-back against stereotypes. For multiethnic people, there can be infinite answers to this question, as well as ambiguity, frustration, and joy.

That Makes Total Sense! Mixed Blessings-One of my favorite aspects of the book is how Chandra points out that Jesus was ethnically mixed! We read about his genealogy in the gospels, and even with as many times as I have studied the women and men who were included in his ancestry, somehow I’ve always managed to miss that amazing point. You don’t want to miss this conversation with Chandra!

All Shall Be Well: Cheerfully Defying Stereotypes. “If someone is asking me to be more like the dominant culture and saying, ‘Your identity is in Christ,’ and what they really want is for me to be less loud or wear smaller earrings or to be more quiet and feminine, they’re not actually asking me to look more like Jesus, they’re asking me to look more like them.”
