Sample text

In the UK, mixed-race people were not even identified and counted prior to the 1991 census and the full extent of the changing circumstances have only recently begun to emerge. England and Wales had nearly 700,000 mixed-race people in 2001 and this had risen to nearly 1 million only eight years later in 2009 (ONS, 2011). This is a huge rate of growth and it would appear that this category is the fastest growing of all minority groups, with around 9 per cent of children now living in families that contain mixed or multiple heritages (Platt, 2009).

Many of the previous markers of social divides, such as those based on language, accents and dress codes, have all but disappeared in modern Britain at least. For example, the ‘proper’ language of the BBC has been supplemented and supplanted by regional accents, and in terms of dress, the establishment of a huge range of high street fashions – often based upon global brands and the ‘casualisation’ of clothing – has removed many of the visual cultural codes. More markedly, the end of deference to our class ‘betters’ has long since removed visible class-based social hierarchies and repositioned them, for example, in respect of celebrity status.

Transracial adoption has been bound up with concerns about national and ethnic identifications and has assumed, in particular, that Black people have a different and bounded culture, derived from distinct ‘roots’ that are different from those of White Britons (Suki, 2003, p. 8). However, it is based on an even deeper sense of division too, in which it is assumed that people of one ‘race’ cannot provide love and support to a person of another ‘race’ and that their identity will be in some way compromised or confused, leading to psychological problems.
