I am sure you are right ladygoeth33. Do you have any references?

Hi Kathy,
I am the mother of two biracial daughters,they are now in college. I was wondering how you dealt with prejudice against interracial marriages and their children. You have obviously done a tremendous job raising Justin but was wondering if you encountered any problems in the race area. I am sometimes asked if my kids were adopted since I am blond (my husband is African American) but if he is not with me, people have trouble and there still is alot of prejudice. We live in a mostly white area so my kids have always stuck out as different. Congratulations on the great job you have done with Justin, he is a remarkable young man!
Sincerely,
Karen aka Moms 4 Justin

Karen,
I really feel we avoided any serious problem with Justin because we lived in a more diverse area..first Atlanta, Washington/Northern Virginia, then suburban philadelphia. I remember Justin asking me once when he was about 6, if he was more like me or more like his Dad in atlanta (we had divorced by that time)..I told him he was more like himself..in fact there was only one person like him..he had many nationalities and was like the United Nations. Kids can be so cruel, I always tried to instill in Justin that he was teriffic and be happy within himself.

Ok, I will sign off for now....thank you all again for writing and your interest in Justin. We are going to Florida to see him for a couple of days and will tell him you all said hi!!!!!

Take care,
Kathy Guarini

Justin Guarini: You know, Iím fortunate Iíd sayÖ My father is Black and Irish and my motherís Italian. Itís a very interesting mix but I donít see myself being other than what I am. Itís going to be very interesting in the next 50 to 75 years to see more people that look like you and me and you know, I love it.

He makes my Top Ten Least Attractive Men of All Time list. Really, he's right, though - he is the new American.

He has had his nose surgically altered to mask his negroid heritage. False advertising....

I doubt that he had surgery because of that.....he's visibly a man of negroid ancestry, even without the hair...

There are a lot of people who are proud of their mutliple-race ancestry.

he is obviously proud of his heritage, other wise he wouldnt have his hair like it is.
