    I don't like the term bi-racial either. I have a diverse heritage, as do most people. If race is defined by ethnic group, then almost all of us are multi racial.

    Yeah it can be confusing because people define it in different ways. Whenever I hear "race" I always think of the four races: Congoid, Causcasoid, Mongoloid, Australoid, which is doesn't narrow things down very well when there are well over 6 billion people lol.

    I know mulatto is non-pc, but its such a wonderful word. It makes it sound a whole segment of the population was carmel flavored and served with whip cream and biscotti.

    Thats because race in and of itself is a vacuous concept. Its only meaningful insofar as it defines someones experience.

    I am the WASP of your nightmares! Tiny Army says that I was a nazi experiment gone wrong (I have hazel eyes instead of blue, and have a bad habit of thinking male WASPs are all that guy from Bladerunner) and that my parents got me from a mail-order catalogue.

    "Medley", that's nice.

    I'm okay with "mutt" honestly. Sounds like a cute puppy.

    I'm all white European. I don't even know what specific concoction I am. Different ethnic groups raped and pillaged their way through here in the past. Maybe there's some Viking, Scandinavian blood in me I have sort of fair-haired-blue-eyed-pale-skin-gets-burned-easily-in-the-sun thing going on

    I'm the same. English is dominant in the mix.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?
