That is precisely what they’ve at all times been afraid of! On the plus facet, younger individuals of coloration rising up might cease receiving and internalizing the message that White = regular, and that they, subsequently, are ‘different.’ For all of us, White and non-White, there’s an opportunity that we’ll start to focus much less on race and extra on our widespread humanity. There are such a lot of ‘multiracial’ individuals now, all around the world, that the entire idea of race appears to be like more and more ridiculous.
