Is America truly ready to embrace biracial identity and interracial marriage?

If you ask Taye Diggs and his ex-wife, Idina Menzel, they may have a mouthful for you (and it won’t be nice, either).

Diggs recently sat with Steve Harvey to discuss the flack he has been receiving about his children’s book, Mixed Me, which centers on his bi-racial son, Walker Diggs, and his acceptance of having two heritages.

According to the full story at Hello Beautiful, Taye discussed with Steve Harvey the mixed (no pun intended) reactions he received from social media, including the idea that he wanted his son to identify more with his Caucasian heritage as opposed to his African ancestry.

To make matters even more alarming, Taye discussed the death threats his ex-wife received in regards to her marrying outside of her race. See the sit-down below.

What are your thoughts? Is America ready to embrace someone who truly identifies as bi-racial? Or will the one-drop rule always apply?
