Our Mixed Chicks History Month person of distinction today isn’t a person but a family. We decided to highlight New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s beautiful mixed family! We love how he celebrates his unique family which includes his wife, activist and poet Chirlane McCray and his two children; daughter Chiara and son Dante. As the newest Mayor in one of the world’s most populous cities, de Blasio is a testament to the changing culture of acceptance and love towards interracial marriages and families that is spreading across our country.
We love that he is fearless in his convictions about his love for his wife and children and that he showcases his family every chance he gets. As the world continues to change and becomes the melting pot it was meant to be, there will be more and more families like the de Blasios and soon enough being mixed race will be as American as apple pie and baseball.
We champion those who are courageous enough to live their lives fearlessly and out loud for the entire world to see.
