I am 1/2 Filipino, 3/8 Hispanic (from Spain), and 1/8 Moroccan.

 

But I am extremely ethnically ambiguous and the closest most people would say about me is that I'm Mexican just because I'm fluent in Spanish too (grammar-wise, but never vocabulary-wise). That 1/8 Moroccan makes me black.

I'm just black. Nothing special.

 

people mistake me as caucasian on the phone, and one person thought I was Jamaican.

i'm malay (the majority race in malaysia) but i'm 1/4 chinese because my grandma was chinese. she was left by her parents when she was a baby to a malay family because they wanted to go back to china and couldn't afford to bring her back too. :crybaby:

 

among my family members, i have the most chinese look, especially when it comes to my eyes. all chinese strangers who wanna speak to me will speak in mandarin instead of malay/english. i tried to learn mandarin to hopefully fool some people and embrace my lost identity but i never got too far with it, alas. :/

After my family moved to the states from Germany in the early 1900s, our bloodline has been watered down to the point where I have no idea what the combination is. People either assume I'm Romanian (because that's where I live), or a Spaniard (because Spanish is life).

 

No one ever assumes American until they hear my English.  :lol:

100% white bread. I'm so white I can trace my family tree back to the 10th century, after that it's not very reliable. By blood I'm central Western Europe white, but people sometimes mistake me as Russian/Eastern European. No idea why, I don't have any blood from that region in me afaik.

At first glance, I assumed you were Russian.  :lol:

I think it's your facial structure, eyebrows, and hair that give that vibe. It definitely isn't a bad thing, Russian/Eastern European women are some of the prettiest I've ever encountered!

Oh man that's actually pretty cool :o

 

Are there any famous historical figures/families in your bloodline?

Oh I'm definitely not offended if someone says that! Quite the contrary.

It is, it's fun looking up your ancestors on Wikipedia and finding out what giant dicks they all were.

Well, the most famous one is Charlemagne, but he doesn't count because almost everyone in Europe has him in their blood. One great great......great grandmother back in the 11th century was the sister of Pope Leo IX, and the rest were all knights, lords, counts etc. No one uber famous unless you're hardcore into European genealogy.

I'm not THAT into it but Pope Leo IX is one of the reasons for The Great Schism, interesting tidbit haha

I'm white. Ancestors were from Europe. Not too surprising. Great great grandmother game from Germany around early 1900s. I like to use it as a fun fact because my great grandfather - her son - is still alive and kickin'. Anyway yeah, most of my family is from Germany or Sweden. There's more but I don't feel like rattling them off and revealing just how much of a mutt I am. 

 

I get mistaken for nothing because I am very clearly white.

That's always the worst, very sorry to hear that.

 

I'm ethnically chinese but no one seems to realise that. They think i'm either japanese or korean, and at a club, people will rudely say "konicchiwa" to me for no reason....

I'm pretty clearly Black, but I've had a lot of people assume I'm not American. I've been asked if I'm from Kenya, Bermuda, Ethiopia, and Brazil. This one guy legit tried to argue with me saying that his friend knows Bermuda girls and that I'm definitely from Bermuda.

1. I honestly don't even know where Bermuda is

2. I'm from LA
