The Hapa Project showed up on one of the pre-show ads at the SF Int’l Asian American Film Festival last weekend. It was cool to see the word Hapa again, I had heard the term but had forgotten. It’s slang for (a person) of mixed racial heritage with partial roots in Asian and/or Pacific Islander ancestry, and the project is a book of photos (and an exhibit) of people who self-identify as Hapa.
Reminded me of a spirited and interesting discussion on Metafilter recently about racial identity and racism, epitomized by the What Are You? question.
