Default HAPA: Half Asian Half Pacific Islander
all of these are HAPA. I'll choose a HAPA after a pure Asian. I grew up hearing the joke; what do you get when you crossbreed an Asian and a white person? you get a Mexican.

Hapa means half Asian or Pacific Islander and half anything else, not just half white. Half white and half Asian is Eurasian.

Oh, my bad.

I don't like the term Eurasian.

Also, I forgot to highlight that the only half Asians considered hapas are those who are half Far Eastern. Half Pacific Islanders are also included as hapas, though.

Not true.

Any touch of Asian in your blood, you are a HAPA.

Never mind, I was mistaken. It's not her. I confused her with Andi Muise, who is a mestiza model from Canada.

He's quapa, not hapa. I always thought he was half white English and half East Indian, but he's not.

I was reading up on the etymology of hapa, and it originally meant half Native Hawaiian. Today, it has extended to mean half Pacific Islander or Far Eastern. If it didn't only mean half, then there wouldn't be words like quapa as well. Also, there has to be a cutoff point. For example, I think it would be silly to refer a person who is 1/16 Vietnamese and 15/16 Euro as mixed-race or part Asian.

I wonder what I am? I'm multi-ethnics?

I'm part Mongolian, Han Chinese, Tibetan, Austro-Asiatic(Mon-Khmer/Vietnamese), Austronesian.....

Hey, I could be biracial too!! Part East Asian and part Austronesian.

I read up on this a while ago. Hapa was an original Hawaiian word for half-breed. Quapa is some made up crap. Not to mention it sounds like Quapaw which was an actual Native tribe in Arkansas. Anyway I can understand people using Hapa, especially in Hawaii where it is from the native language, but why invent silly terms like quapa? I can be a quarter-breed, Eurasian, Amerasian, off-white, mixed-race, Anglo-Jap, etc. I don't need new invented silly words.
