when someone

says they're Japanese, it's not necessarily talking about culturally or language. when i hear someone

tell me that they're Japanese, i'm thinking immediately they're talking about their genetic

heritage.[/quote]

I think this depends

on your personal belief and experience. As I have been repeatedly saying in several of my posts... I don't

believe in biology giving us the world. I consider culture as giving us the world.

But if you think

it's race that gives you the identity of being a haafu, then that's that. I don't have any problems

with that. We all have different points of views.

But I don't. Simple as that... if you think genetic heritage is

what you conjure up when you hear words like Japanese, Chinese, French etc. then that's how you think.

It's interesting to know how people have different understanding of a given

word/event.

well, first of

all.. there's no such thing as "half American". American is a nationality, not an ethnic group or

a racial group.

you're either American or you're not.<!--QuoteEnd--></td></tr></table><!--QuoteEEnd-->

oh really? Maybe I don't quite understand this bit ..

how is it

inappropriate?[/quote]

I'm not a

chocolate bar where 50% is milk and 50% is cacao. I'm a <i>being</i> with mainly Japanese culture and some

foreign influence. That's why when I refer to myself as "half American (50%) and half Japanese

(50%)", this has a racial connotation. In fact anything to do with race, biology or genetics I personally

dislike them... I am not forcing my opinion to others.

But hey we all have different views. It's only

natural. Please don't be upset just because I have different veiws...
pineapple and peanut butter rock!
