White-Passing Episode 2: The weight of a name

Welcome to White-Passing, where I, Ali Juell, and Jillyan McKinney, the Ethnic Studies teacher at Granite Bay High School, discuss being White and Latinx. This podcast series will focus on ethnicity, race and what it’s like to be (you guessed it) white-passing. New episodes every week.

In this episode of White-Passing, we discuss how a name affects someone’s perception of their origins and how the desire to fit into American culture can cause a disconnect between past and present.
