Mr. Chin!? Mr. Lee?! Mr. Wong!?: Gavin Goodall
“I grew up in Jamaica, in Kingston and in Jamaica 96% or 98% of people are Black. And so even though I am mixed Black and Chinese I identified as Chinese, because that is what told me...Like, people that didn't know me would say 'Hey, what's up Mr. Chin, Mr. Lee, Mr. Wong.'”
Gavin Goodall grew up with two mixed parents of Jamaican-Chinese decent. In this episode Gavin dives into his experiences as a MIXD person which includes the immigrant experience and learning overtime how racial identity and oppression has impacted our African American/Black American family differently.
Topics from cultural differences, feeling a sense of belonging, searching for who to identify with, confronting stereotypes, immigrant perspectives, and relationships are all topics that we touch on today.
