What was life like for Doria and Meghan growing up?

Doria being African-American and Thomas being Dutch-Irish, led to the family being racially abused when Meghan was younger. Meghan revealed that while growing up she was questioned a lot for her looks as many asked her if her mother was, in fact, her biological mum due to her skin tone.

In her interview Meghan recalled how her mum was taken for the nanny; “I was home in LA on a college break when my mom was called the ‘N’ word. We were leaving a concert and she wasn’t pulling out of a parking space quickly enough for another driver.” She added;  “Being biracial paints a blurred line that is equal parts staggering and illuminating. “While my mixed heritage may have created a grey area surrounding my self-identification, keeping me with a foot on both sides of the fence, I have come to embrace that. “To say who I am, to share where I’m from, to voice my pride in being a strong, confident mixed-race woman.”
