    No. I'm pretty much a WASP.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I'm all white. I did speak to a non-Caucasian once. It went fine.

    But since a young age, I've found Caucasian culture perhaps the least interesting (bar the folk music), and have striven to learn about everyone elses more so than my own.

    (should have done anthropology )

    That's because you are English and not Irish. Seriously, though, I've taken a lot of Anthro and History and Sociology and World Music and Cultures (which was crosslisted between Music and Folklore/Folklife). It's very interesting. Europe has a LOT more culture to explore than just mainstream popular culture and old-school art and architecture.

    Bi-racial. I was raised in a home with parents of two different ethnicities and brought up in a very racially diverse area. I've always had a mixed pack of friends, ethnically. It's essentially been a non-issue.
    It only comes up as a problem with the one-drop rule people. I'm not "white" and I'm not "black", it makes me uncomfortable when people try to peg me as one or the other.

    When you live in an area that's fairly diverse, it always feels strange to go somewhere with a population that's 99.9% white, even if you're white. Here in N. Florida, nearly 40% of the population is African-American, and there are sizeable Indian and Chinese communities in the cities, so it's always a little odd when I visit my dad's family in the Indiana countryside.

    I'm certainly not bi-racial or anything, but I do have a few Native American ancestors, and there is a line that I heavily suspect is either Cherokee or African in origin (marked as "mulatto" in a census). Unfortunately, mixed heritage was not too popular back in those days (1850s-1930s), and so none of my family members who have this background were told anything, and even if they knew, I doubt they'd answer my questions. (I'm the only family member currently persuing the information; haven't told anyone but my mom about the "mulatto" census thing yet.) They called themselves "Black Dutch" to avoid suspicion about their darker coloring. Because of the heritage hiding some families did, it's interesting to wonder how many white people are not as white as they think in the U.S.

    What sort of sucks about the U.S. is that, unless you have a specific ethnic affiliation, you won't feel tied to any group in particular. All of my ancestors' culture has been lost in the span of a few generations, at it's kind of sad when you think about it. I look at my friends (Vietnamese, Puerto Rican, etc) and think that though their recent heritage can cause alienation and stress at times, it must be nice to be grounded in some sort of heritage/culture that is still accessible through the parents or grandparents. And so now I'm an anthropology major, trying to make up for my own lack of culture by learning about everyone else's, heheh.
