hapa
 adj.— «As far as a hapa person sharing my experience, of course there are going to be some things that we both understand, and some that only one of us understands. For example, I couldn’t understand the extent to which a hapa person might experience an identity crisis in terms of having parents of 2 different colors. But that doesn’t keep me trying to understand, and listening to whatever they have to say.» —“Re: Truth and beauty Re: inter-racial dating” by Sally Oey Usenet: soc.culture.asian.american July 28, 1989.
