I Am Invisible
~by Haley Thurman
I am invisible
I hate to be invisible
I am invisible
Do you think I am invisible?
I think you think I am invisible
You can’t see me
You can’t see Haley
I am a girl
I am biracial and half white
Is it the white in me you don’t like?
Is it my black that’s invisible to you?
I have brown hair and brown eyes
My lips are red
My shirt is yellow
But you don’t see me because I am invisible
Or are you blind?
This was originally on Oprah in November, 1999. Below is the video and interesting segment of being biracial in America (includes singer, Mariah Carey). Maybe we can get an update on Oprah’s #wherearetheynow. I find it sad that there are still such negative comments written today…your thoughts?

We have been given lots of favor in the last 24 hours! We are going to be able to move forward with our manufacturer with a smaller budget AND Indiegogo truly wants us to succeed! They have allowed us to cut our goal to $10,000!! This is AMAZING NEWS! Please help us continue to get the word out about this great teaching tool! Every little bit helps! $1, $5, truly anything you can give!
Will you help us keep this work going? And share it with friends?
(might I add that crowdfunding is definitely not for the faint of heart!)
Today, I will be on a local radio show with Beatrice Johnston from the YWCA and the “Reading to End Racism” program. Tune in to AM 1140 at 2 PM or listen to the podcast online here! Did you know that the YWCA’s mission is: “Eliminating Racism, Empowering Women”? Contact your local YWCA and see how you can get involved!
It’s encouraging to meet others who share similar experiences. Will you please tell us a little about your multiracial family? Where are you located? How did you find us?
