Plight of the "Other" Race: Black and White America As Seen Through Biracial Eyes
After having the question of "What Are You?" posed to him as a kid by a curious child, Tyson began a lifelong journey of biracial enlightenment in search of the ultimate answer to that question. After teetering on both sides of the threshold of lower and middle class life with his white mother and her family in a world where the Caucasian race was supreme and saw no equal, Tyson was sent on a turbulent quest of self discovery, to live with the previously unknown, black parents of his permanently incarcerated father and was abruptly thrust into the antithesis of his previous life. After adjusting to his new identity, he was ripped from comfort and thrown into the tumultuous environment of the foster care system where he experienced a racial roller coaster ride from ashy to classy, below the poverty line to the lap of luxury and back again to the median of the two. The Plight of the "Other" Race offers an eye opening perspective on Black, White and Multi Racial America.
