    I'm chinese, but not full.

    My mum's side is 100% Chinese, but my dad's is something like a mix of Spanish and Welsh blood. So in the end, I am 15/16 Chinese, 1/32 Spanish and 1/32 Welsh XD and 100% Aussie!

    I don't know if people would actually care.

    I'm not just an Asian. I'm Chinese. And a banana at that. Why? because I am yellow on the outside but white on the inside. I don't know my native language. it's a real shame I know but what to do ?
