Hi, I'm evilprodigy on LJ and have a Dreamwidth account solely for commenting on DW feed posts that show up on my flist. :D

I have a question as to the Blog Carnival. I'm half-Korean, half-white, and was thinking of making a post either on the personal issues of racism and Orientalism in the complicated relationship between my mother and father as a thing that became more of an issue as I grew up, or on the experience of being disbelieved or considered "inauthentic" by fully white people. But I'm not certain if I'm an appropriate voice in this carnival, being as it's for PoC, and while I self-identify as Korean I would not like to discount the privilege of having a white first and last name and being able to pass in a number of settings.

I'd love to participate, but I don't want to barge in on anything that doesn't and shouldn't include me, basically. :) What's the policy on inbetweeners like me and our experiences with Asianness and racism?
