I look white, I’m also Japanese.

I am mixed race. My mother is half-Japanese, my father is white. I was raised in a Japanese-American household, but sometimes people struggle to grasp this or accept me as Japanese-American because of my blue eyes and brown hair. I am so proud of my culture that I refuse to sink to their labels or negative comments about how I’m a “fake-Asian”. I am white and I am Japanese. That’s all there is to it.
