The reaction to Meghan Markle's engagement is in, and it's not pretty. Christopher and Jeanette spend most of the podcast discussing the reaction from a variety of racial perspectives. There's also some chat about the value of identifying as biracial, and a recent piece from the New York Times about a family that adopted and soon after returned a baby they didn't know was black before they met her.
- This whole episode is about perspectives on biracial identity. No need for timestamps this time.
