    Why “gag” about how beautiful the population will look in 2050? As a biracial woman, who will someday have biracial kids of my own, here is my response: http://womenworthy.blogspot.com/2014/03/biracial-beauty-is-real-message-to-my.html

    “between sixty and seventy-five per cent of them were involved in “contraband smuggling and/or having sexual relationships with inmates.” According to the government, Tavon White had sexual relationships with four guards and fathered five children by them. (One of the guards had “Tavon” tattooed on her wrist; another had the name on her neck.) An inmate and gang member named Jamar Anderson was involved with five guards.”

    Prisoners can’t have sexual relations with a prison guard. That is rape even if the guards are never prosecuted for it and they probably won’t be.

    Thanks for rephrasing the bit about the kids in 2050. I would still like to share my thoughts as biracial woman, and the future parent of a multi-racial child, for whom the idea of biracial/multi racial beauty might still not be enough to combat the negative stereotypes she will be inevitably face.

    so here is my link to the piece “Biracial beauty is real. (A message to my future kids) http://womenworthy.blogspot.com/2014/03/biracial-beauty-is-real-message-to-my.html
