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.

INTP. Type 1>6>5. sx/sp. Live and let live will just amount to might makes right
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.
I am 1/4 Russian, part Irish, part Portuguese, part German, maybe a gram of Mongolian. Oh, and Jewish.
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)

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.
