Identity Crisis Alert

In the hapas community another identity crisis:

http://www.livejournal.com/community/hapas/139934.html?nc=11

These "kids" don't know who they are. It's sad because they cling onto a Hawaiian word in order to find themselves at the expense of Hawaiian culture and it's people. They should be digging their roots. Not stepping on ours. However if and when they stop being lazy and start digging their roots that's when they will know who they are and when they find out... oooh. They will not want to look in the mirror. By the way these "kids" are about age 16 to age 28.

It is sad when people are not sure of what they identify as and feel the need to co-opt that which is not their own. It's important to know who you are where you stand. Well, fuck that. It's not sad...it makes me angry. Hahaha.

I have a lot of friends who are and know they are "mixed up mutt Americans"and "euro-mutt american" and are just fine with that. Often those interlopers into other cultures are of the above culture. If you have to LOOK for your identity then it is not YOUR identity. It is someone else's that you LIKE.
