Have you ever filled out some type of form where you have to indicate your race? As a halvie (half Japanese, half English) I have a struggle as to what put down, am I white or am I asian? If I put down one I feel guilty for ignoring the other. Therefore I smoosh my white/asian description in the ridiculously tiny line and call it a day. But when I walk into Asia Mart, I get my asian on like nobody's business. There are just somethings you can't get at Safeway.
Don't worry I get my English on at 3:00 everyday when I have my tea english tea with milk and sugar and Sunday night when masterpiece theater is on. Oh yeah, halvsies are the best!
