Diversity in Life

We hear so much about diversity in literature. Mostly about how we need more of it. Diversity has always been a double edged sword for me. As a person of mixed descent, I've almost always been forced to relate to my Japanese side. Not that this is a bad thing but I am half Caucasian and half Japanese so I feel like I'm divided in half. I can't pretend to relate to one side more than the other because I am split equally. But I think that because I don't look the "normal" white person, I must be more Japanese (to others).
