Finally, here's the concluding part of this blog post where I asked some 'cool kids' to share their experiences growing up in a mixed home and their thoughts on inter-ethnic marriages.
As I've probably said before, it's one thing for 2 individuals to get fall in love based on their own interests. But what if it's not the best circumstance and environment for the kids?
It's a bit of a stretch but sort of like two AS genotype couples ignoring the fact that they could potentially have SS kids and that wouldn't be best for the kids. Thankfully, judging from the responses of these four (and the earlier four)... i think inter ethnic homes are thankfully safe, and sound like so much fun.
I must admit some of the stories clearly got me laughing & wondering what it'd have been like if I grew up in a mixed home. I guess our kids will be lucky and hopefully have such fun stories to share!
I spoke to Viv whose dad would almost twist his tongue trying to speak her mum's language; and to Olive who considered getting married to a Hausa man just to complete the circle. Lamide shares the one food he thinks we shouldn't eat & Sogie says she often uses a common opinion held about Bini people to her advantage!
