Yellow outside, white inside, adopted Twinkie.

Adopted from Korea at 4 1/2 months old, I was raised in an entirely Caucasian family and community until I went to college. I often struggle with not identifying with my Asian exterior (yellow), which is how the world around me sees me. I find I identify so much more with my Caucasian interior (white), a testament to nuture versus nature I suppose. I, and many others in my situation, call themselves bananas or Twinkies. Can it be classified as a race?!?
