My children are people not flavors.

Dionne Bensonsmith
Pomona, CA

Mother of 4 transnational, multiethnic and multiracial children. My husband is Russian with two children from his previous relationship, I am African American with one child from my previous relationship and we have a child together. Our children are not mocha, java, vanilla or chocolate swirl…they are Russian, African American, So. Cal residents (saying otherwise strips them of the distinct cultural and ethnic heritage from which they came).
