    Irish, German, and probably a bunch of other things. If I were a dog, I'd be a mutt.

    We've got a bunch of happenings and famous people, but no one that's done anything interesting in the past 50 years. Well, and class and nationality were both far more prominent than they should have been in my hometown, so I feel extremely hesitant about sharing the exact pedigree-- nothing personal, of course.

    100 percent Kenyan as far as I can tell. I was born in Kenya as were all my siblings, and a large majority of my extended family. I have a decent amount of of family who have since moved to England and Canada, however. So culturally I guess you could say they have inhabited those respective tendencies.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    Welsh, English, Scots & possibly Irish; here since early 1700s. On the other side, Hispanic (maybe even Basque via southwest texas) since mid-1500s and Native American. I consider myself truly American and do not consider myself to have any other ethnic identity.

    I am descended from Mongolian invaders.* I come from a sturdy stock.

    *And when I say "Mongolian invaders", I mean Genghis Khan.

    Are you sure you weren't born in Hawaii and then switched immediately?

    The only thing that makes any sense is to have your genetic code read. Then you will discover that you only have to go back a few generations to find a large mixture of genes from all over the world.

    The genetic fact is that we are all part of the same gene pool that has been mixed and mixed and mixed again, to get you.

    To talk about race in this naive way is like talking about personality in terms of MBTI.

    Both are naive, gullible and popular.

    And to be that naive, gullible and popular is a little dangerous. For to talk about 'race' without mentioning genetics lays the groundwork for racism. And to talk about personality and MBTI without mentioning that you can actually have your personality measured with a valid and reliable personality test by a qualified psychometrician, leads to the cult of personality.

    However if you take MBTI and 'race' to be on the same level as astrology, then it becomes a conversational piece, suitable for a bar or a chat forum.

    ^Believe it or not there is a lot of racism still going on.. and plenty of it where I am.. has been towards me.

    To me, my race is what makes me who I am because I have pride in the race that I've grown up in, I enjoy my traditions. But I also enjoy people of all races and I am open to them even if they ain't towards me.

    But to say that it doesn't make ME who I am would be lying. People can pick and choose who they are, who they want to be.. and if that's how they want to be seen.. no one needs to follow a set plan.
    But for me no matter what my looks and my skin color will always group me in a group to (some) people.. so why not be proud of the group I'm placed in while I'm there.. the sad truth is that there are still people out there who haven't over came the racial grouping and barriers.
