Why Not Double?

This work ‘Why Not Double? ‘ Is my response to mixed-race people being described as ‘half’ using a mass-produced figurine to stand for mass-produced ideas about race. To quote @salenagodden: ‘But hang on a minute. Surely if I am from two colours, two races, I am two shades, and therefore not half-caste, not half anything, but whole, I am double caste. But half sounds shadier. Half is best because half means less. You lose. You are half a person. We don’t want you getting all empowered, now do we.’
