  • Yeah, because even though it's just a very small part of you, you still have some Chinese in you, just don't say it like you're 100% Chinese.

  • Yes, you are of Chinese descent, of course. But, it is far from being a significant proportion of your ancestry.

  • Yes. But it would be so insignificant that it would be silly of you to start saying that you identify as Chinese and that you understand what it's like to be Chinese.

  • That means you're only 1/32 Chinese. Mention it if asked about your ancestry, but don't proclaim yourself to be of Chinese descent in normal conversation. You have one Chinese great great great grandparent.

  • Your parent would be 1/16 Chinese. You would be 1/32 Chinese.
