I’m half Japanese-half Filipino and I am proud of it. I get disappointed at times when biracial people only acknowledge the other part of who they are. I often see Hollywood Fil-Ams who do that on interviews. When we’re all aware that the other parent is pure Filipino, they would usually say, “But it’s a mix of Chinese, Spanish and all other races” basically getting away and much as possible detaching their association with their Filipino race. Shame on the people who do that. I am a Filipino and I am damn proud of it.
