Concert of my Life

Pats posts stuff sometimes, mostly reblogs and likes other posts, usually cats or important issues but often pop culture too.

Some personally written posts are big blog post style, so a "Read More" link is used to shorten posts for browser feeds. (sorry mobile users)

I write a lot about social/political/world issues and you may or may not agree with my opinions. I am not and do not claim to be an expert on any of the topics, and am only presenting my thoughts formed from knowledge gained through research or school. Feel free to let me know what you think, I am always open to new ideas and perspectives.

Any statements made on this blog are my own personal opinions and do not reflect the views or stances of any organization, company, or peer that I am affiliated with.

    of-praxis:

    The experience of 1.5 generation immigrants, a term used to describe people who arrived in the U.S. as children and adolescents, is a unique one. Unlike their first-generation parents or U.S.-born siblings, their identity is split. They are American in many ways, sometimes in most, but not entirely.

    Depending on how old 1.5s are upon arrival, where they grow up, which ethnic group they belong to and a host of other factors, their American/immigrant identities vary wildly, as do the roles they play within immigrant diasporas. They can play bridge-builder and cultural interpreter, helping parents and grandparents navigate their new home. Or they can feel like outcasts, neither here nor there. Then there are complicating factors like legal status, with some undocumented 1.5s growing up side by side with U.S. citizen siblings and peers.

    I’ll read this later but hooray for 1.5’s!
