WHAT: This new documentary explores the social and political impact of adding a Multiracial Category (the fastest growing demographic in America) as a stand alone racial group on the US Census. Different racial and cultural groups see multiracialism differently. For some Whites, multiracialism represents the pollution of the White race. For some Blacks it represents an attempt to escape Blackness. And for some Asians, Latinos and Arabs, multiracialism represents the dilution of the culture.
