This chapter explores how race operates in everyday life or "how race is lived in tensions", by looking at the everyday lived experience of race and racism among nannies living in Paris, a global city that appears to manifest a public embrace of diversity and multiculturalism. It pays particular attention to the complex interplay between the experiential texture of everyday racial relationships and the use of new digital technologies; how migrant nannies as racialized and marginalized members of particular social groups attempt to make themselves at home and create a sense of home and belonging through transnational media and communication practices and mundane experiences of the online ethnic media in particular. It also argues that the digital media's capacity, or the nature and significance of the ways in which migrants maintain perpetual connection with their homeland through digital media, is both enabling and constraining their actions in the new society.
