The Complexities of Mixed-Race Identity

The announcement of Kamala Harris as the US Democratic Party's nominee for vice-president has brought to the forefront her biracial identity as a woman of Jamaican and Indian descent, in both positive and negative ways. We discuss the complexities of coming from a background of mixed heritage, and how it translates into a Malaysian context.
