Experiences of racism have been found to be inversely linked to health and mental health among racial minority individuals, including those who identify as biracial or multiracial. Mixed race theorists have suggested that biracial adults with an integrated racial identity (i.e. viewing one’s own racial backgrounds as complementary and non-conflicting) may experience less pronounced ill-effects in association with encounters with racism. Thus, the goal of this study is to promote understanding and awareness of discrimination against biracial and multiracial individuals in the interest of anti-racism advocacy.
The study is expected to take about 20-30 minutes. To participate in this study, you need to:
- Identify as biracial or multiracial or
- Have biological parents who have different racial backgrounds from one another and
- Be at least 18 years of age
