Harris Interactive, the producer of the Harris Poll which undertakes market research and consulting globally has recognized multi-racial identity as a separate classification on their online polls when asking respondents about race.  The term ‘Mixed Race’ has been added to the standard racial categories.

The journal Multiracial Activist, however, prefers the term ‘Multiracial’, but views this step by Harris as a significant development.  Additional information available from James Landrith Jr at   or
