The Tyra Banks Show will air a segment today featuring biracial children who hate one side of themselves. Hate? Really? I am hoping the title of the show is just a tease to attract viewers. I would like to see it and tried to set my DVR so that I could watch. I want to hear why these young people hate one part of themselves so that I may help Simone and Nadia avoid feeling the same way as young adults. I am also curious whether the show will feature experts who have studied racial identity. So many times a little perspective is needed to show how parents and others can help their children form a healthy identity. I would be heartbroken if Simone and Nadia cast aside any part of themselves. Heartbroken.
ETA: I failed DVR 101 and did not view the segment.
