CULTURE CONFLICTS: WHEN BORN INTO TWO, ONE USUALLY WINS

“One wins,the other loses.”


best of both worlds

What happens when you grow up in a biracial household and you are introduced into to different cultures? Well, what usually happens is that you find yourself having to figure out two paths to navigate. And the ultimate reality is that you usually grow up and choose one of the cultures over the other. It is not because you don’t respect the other culture, it’s just that one typically resonates over the other. Something you get that is coming from one usually feels more connected to where you are going in life, or the culture is more symbolic to you. Meaning, if you grow up in a household where one parent is Jewish and the other Hindu, rarely do both hold weight into adulthood. You will be both, but you may choose to practice one over the other is an adult.

wanting to keep it in-house

A lot of people would prefer their children to keep the culture within the realm of their own people. And the reason being because it is too easy to lose the identity of a people. And marrying someone of another culture could easily cause that to happen. Meaning, if I as an African American marry someone Chinese, that child typically will choose one over the other as an adult. And that choice is the defining moment of what will happen to the history of that group from there on out. Because let’s say that kid chooses to marry Chinese, then the connection by the time my grandchild comes along is lost forever to Black people. And from this people tend to b protective of their cultures.

in a shrinking society

What will happen the more America becomes this biracial melting pot that it is becoming? For starters the physical embodiment of the country will change. But another thing that will take hold is the conservative landscape that has made America what it is will start to diminish as well. So the relationships may sound like ti could be better because we are slowly becoming more of one nation. But the problems surmount because new boundaries and alliances could form. So the change could be something that could help the culture of hurt the future.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
