Multiracial Entertainers: The Male Edition 1

If you’re a regular reader of KolorBlind Magazine, then you’ll be familiar with our tagline which is:

“the promotion of the Interracial (KolorBlind) life through culture, fashion, language and food…”

The KolorBlind life consists of those in an interracial/interethnic relationships and those who were born as a result of such relationship. Over the last two or three decades the number of people who are described as being of mixed race has risen tremendously. We see them on TV, we see them in magazines and we hear them quite a lot on the radio. The United States even has a president of mixed race heritage.

The terms multiracial and mixed-race describe people or groups of people whose ancestries come from multiple races.
