Blackanese

noun; blending and clipping
biracial person of African-American/Black and Asian heritage The term Blackanese derived from the need to characterize or group people from African-American (Black) and Asian decent. As the numbers of interracial people grew throughout America and other countries, people felt a need to recognize every race that a person belonged to (not denying one). For example, Tiger Woods, a professional golf player declared his race a Cablinasian, a term meaning Caribbean, Black, Indian, and Asian heritage. The term Blackanese can also be used as an adjective, blackanese, to describe someone who appears to have physical features characteristic of both African-Americans and Asians.
 
That guy had to be Blackanese. He had this whole African-Asian-American thing going on.
Etymology : Black (denoting the race) + an (clipping of and) + ese (clipping taken from Asian races such as Chinese, Vietnamese, Japanese, Taiwanese, etc.). The term Black denotes Americans of African descent, and can viewed analogous with the term African-American.
