This is a special Q & A segment of The Hamster Village, called “Interracial Inquiries,” where host Nathan Brannon answers a question from you, the listeners! Nathan enlists the help of previous guests, to chime in with their own perspectives and experiences. This is our third installment, and last question with Shain and Sarah; an interracial couple from the episode “Half & Half.” Here is the question that we attempt to answer:
“Nathan. My child’s hair & eyes are more like my wife’s (Who is White) than they are like mine. It seems like those features are what garners the most compliments. It feels kind of like a backhanded comment towards me sometimes. I know I shouldn’t take it that way, but I do sometimes. Am I overreacting?"
