Such a lovely sentiment! And she's very much correct!
Mariah Carey recently opened up about her pregnancy, and revealed that she's pleased that we live in a time now where people are accepted, even though their parents may be from mixed heritage!
"Having Obama in office and bringing a child into the world at this point is totally different than me feeling like an outcast when I was growing up and not feeling like it was okay to be ethnically diverse, and I can't believe that we have arrived at this point within society. I think it's a little bit easier now because the world has changed just in terms of identifying yourself. That always felt like a strange thing to me as a child, not looking the same as your own mother of father was a very different thing back then."
But we think it's important to keep in mind that although we've grown leaps and bounds in that respect, there is still quite a bit of prejudice and hate in the world, and we must continue to fight for EVERYONE'S equality!
We're getting there! But we need to stay vigilant, and fight for what's right!
