I do not know why… I always thought “Hapa” meant being half Asian and half White. I guess because I don’t personally know any Blackanese folks who self-identify as Hapa.
BUT I just saw a definition of the word “Hapa” that says it means mixed…Asian and …whatevs.
(singing to the tune of Pharrell’s “Happy”)…
“Clap along if you feel like HAPA-ness is da truth!” ;o)
