Have you seen the social media tags & accounts dedicated to "pretty mixed kids" & "beautiful mixed-race babies"? Where is the boundary between being proud to share your child with the world and exposing, objectifying & capitalizing on their beauty?  

SOUND
FAMILIAR?

“Mixed babies are the prettiest babies.”
“I want my kid to look like Drake's baby.”
“I hope she looks more like her mom.
“You're mixed though, your kids would be so cute.”


The Mixed Space is Proud to Present
