hapa
 adj.— «Sometime during my sophomore year I stumbled upon MiXeD at UW which lead me to my exploration of Mavin Foundation. I was incredibly excited to hear that there’s a magazine on multiracial backgrounds. I have a vague memory when I was about 10 years old and imagined what it would be like to have a country dedicated to all of us hapa kids. I discovered that Hawaii is as close as it gets.» —“More About Hapa” Picolute (Seattle, Wash.) Feb. 7, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
