Want to ask some questions.
Is Hakka language a separate language from standard Chinese? Can non-Hakka standard Chinese speakers (Mandarin) understand Hakka speakers? How different is it?
Do Hakka people identify themselves as Chinese or Hakka first?
Are Hakka ppl considered outsiders by mainstream Han Chinese?
Is there a lot of intermixing between Hakka and non-Hakka (especially marriage)?

Hakka are Han Chinese. The Guangdong Hakka dialect is bit similar to Cantonese. I think other Hakka dialects spoken in Jiangxi and Fujian are more different from the Cantonese dialect.
There are different types of Hakka dialects, and one Hakka speaker from one province may not understand a Hakka speaker from another province. Yes, more Hakka people are marry other non-Hakka people and that's a good thing.
