    I agree...I find learning about people's individual heritages interesting. There's a lot more than meets the eye to most people, including their ethnic background.

    Different ethnic slurs and everything!

    EDIT: I might as well contribute here, even though I'm sure I've mentioned my race and ethnicity many times before.

    I am super caucasian. The only thing that would make me more caucasian is platinum hair. Ethnically, I go back a few generations in the USA, and then it all becomes western/northern Europe. I'm a mutt of virtually every nation in that region, and I am apparently Jewish, though that was kept secret.

    I think I go back in the states as far as is possible-- the family started in the US sometime in mid-1600s Virginia. Scary, right?

    I did find myself wishing to be other things as a child. Black, because the community seemed more supportive; biracial (yes, I know the term is questionable) because they always turned out so pretty and had the best of two worlds; Indian, because I wanted to get my nose pierced and loved the history; Italian, because then I wouldn't be under so much scrutiny when I got angry, and their skin turns such a pretty color in the sun; Jewish, because I liked the tradition of knowledge; Irish, because the culture seemed poetic...

    I'm sure I had a reason to want to be anything but what I am. The most depressing thing about race as a cultural influence, at least when I was growing up, was that it made everyone feel like this to some extent.

    Do you know anything about your family's history? A family going that far back in the US probably has some seriously interesting people/happenings in its past.

    Qre:us - my parents moved to Canada in the late 70's. Like all good immigrants, they wanted to do their best to fit in. So of course, once they had kids, they also had to fix their teeth!

    I get mistaken for as Asian. I have come to terms that it is my eyebrows. Also, my hair is very dark brown.

    Anyways, I am like, 90% European.
    That's interesting, how did the maybe gram of Mongolian come about? Or is that a joke?

    I remember an acquaintance of mine, I could have sworn she was hapa/mixed Asian but she is 100% white. Someone saw a picture of her dad and said her father also looked "ethnic". Some people just got that look. (I'm gonna guess it's the Portguese)

    Why was this thread deemed two star worthy?

    I mostly don't understand the way the rating system is used around this place.

    25% scottish (by way of canada)
    25% irish (by way of england
    my father's side is trickier, because of the question of.. uh.. infidelity
    let's say it's about 50% english (by way of east texas), with strong suspicions of native american blood.

    people often ask if i've got asian blood, but this is probably because i grew up in a very asian area.
