Is our language outdated?Posted: May 27, 2011
Is ‘Mixed Race’ a term you would use? Dennis, above, and his partner Jane discuss.
Dennis: Jane would use that, I wouldn’t. I shift with the times.
Dennis: That’s a very 80’s word
Jane: What’s the new word then?
Dennis: Dual heritage, that’s what they use at the moment, but I’m sure that will change at some point to something more politically correct. I don’t know who (my children’s) long-term partners will be, and who they decide to have kids with, and they could be from another culture so again, it will shift and change.
