Dalmage examines the challenges faced by people living in such families and explores how their experiences demonstrate the need for rethinking race in America. She examines the lived reality of race in the ways multiracial family members construct and describe their own identities and sense of community and politics. She shows how people whose own very lives complicate the idea of the color line must continually negotiate and contest it in order not to reproduce it. Their lack of language to describe their multiracial existence, along with their experience of coping with racial ambiguity and with institutional demands to conform to a racially divided, racist system is the central theme of Tripping on the Color Line. By connecting the stories to specific issues, such as census categories, transracial adoption, intermarriage, as well as the many social responses to violations of the color line, Dalmage raises the debate to a broad discussion on racial essentialism and social justice.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/1013154<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/oclc\/606395299<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:name<\/a> \"Tripping on the color line : Black-white multiracial families in a racially divided world<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:productID<\/a> \"43936887<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:publication<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/43936887#PublicationEvent\/new_brunswick_n_j_rutgers_university_press_2000<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:publisher<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/1013154#Agent\/rutgers_university_press<\/a>> ; # Rutgers University Press<\/span>\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/digitool.hbz-nrw.de:1801\/webclient\/DeliveryManager?application=DIGITOOL-3&owner=resourcediscovery&custom%5Fatt%5F2=simple%5Fviewer&user=GUEST&pid=1375909<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780813528441<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780813528434<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0wdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/43936887<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.<\/div>
