AND THE WINNER IS . . . . US, ALL OF US! On the day after all the celebrations of the end of the Second World War, let’s remember what fueled that war: a vision of an all white, all right world, without a shade of gray, devoid of differing colors of opinion or people, bereft of doubt.
No nation has ever fallen because it was too free. No nation has been anything but strengthened by the infusion of the new. New people and new ideas never threaten good people and good ideas. Those who have everything are often wary of those looking for something. For those without a generous saving spirit, wealth and power corrupt and make small what was once great.
So I salute mongrel America, one of many dogs in a wondrous mongrel world. We are not alone in having many different dogs in our house. Randy Paul of Beautiful Horizons has written about Argentina and its mixed people most recently here. Most worthy of a visit.

Hapa is a Native Hawaiian word, originally meaning simply "part" or "mixed," with no racial or ethnic meaning. It became associated with the phrase hapa haole during the influx of European immigrants, many of whom intermarried with the ali’i, or land-owning class, of Native Hawaiians. Later, as Japanese immigrants were imported as plantation labor, the Japanese Hawaiian population adopted the term hapa, mostly to refer to people of mixed Japanese and European heritage. Today, the word hapa includes AfroAsians, EurAsians, Latin Asians, Native Asians and mixed APAs. The hapa communityalso includes trans-racial adoptees, such as Koreans or Chinese raised by white parents.
Mixed-race is defined as having one parent of Asian or Pacific Islander descent, and another of some other race, such as white, African American, or American Indian. As of the 2000 Census, which is the first to define Asians and Pacific Islanders as being of different "races," someone with one Asian parent and one Pacific Islander parent, is also technically mixed-race.
Mixed-ethnicity is defined as having parents of more than one Asian or Pacific Islander group, but not some other "race." Thus, a Pakistani-Chinese or Tongan-Hawaiian would be considered individuals of mixed ethnicity, but a Pakistani-Hawaiian would be considered someone of mixed-race, according to the way the Census divides Asians from Pacific Islanders.
Amerasian is a term referring to people of blended "American" and Asian ancestry --- with the assumption often being that the American side is European American or African American, and from the father who was in the military and served in a war in Asia --- usually in Korea, Japan, or Vietnam. The relatively high number of enlisted people of color, and the diversity of "American" ethnicities, is often ignored. This term has occasionally been used as a catch-all for Asians of mixed heritage, but is now often used with specificallyto refer to the groups outlined above. THE HERETIK SALUTES ALL AMERICANS.
Wherever we come from, whatever we have left behind, we can all look forward to a future free if each of us guard that freedom for all. VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE ALL AMERICAN MUTT TODAY!
