Being hapa.   This is the subject that began this blog in the first place.  The following posts cover a wide range of topics on race, ethnicity, identity, culture and on being hapa. These are just a few of my thoughts and life experiences on the subject as well as a series called “what hapa means” from guest bloggers and writers.
