    Mixed race MC's...do it?

    I have a YA/coming of age novel and I originally made my MC Filipino because I am Filipino and wanted some of his stories to relate to the Filipino/asian youth.

    I decided to change his ethnicity to half canadian/filipino because one of the core themes in my book is about cultural/individual identity, so I thought a mixed race MC would be perfect.


    What do you guys think? Should I keep them bi-racial? I wish I had the guts to go all the way...make the MC Filipino and the LI full arabic, but I have the same hesitations about diversity in my books everyone does.
