What Does BANANA Mean?

BANANA means "Westernized Asian Person." It is a pejorative term.

Because bananas are yellow on the outside and white on the inside, banana is used as an offensive term for ethnic Asian (e.g., Chinese, Malaysian) people who live in the West and conform to the culture and values of their adopted country, rather than those of their "homeland."

Banana is not only used to insult first-generation immigrants, but also their offspring, who may have little or no experience of their ancestral culture.
