You know I"m curious it seems a lot of people really don't know what they are. The only one is a black person they are called African American (keep comments to yourselves folks at least this is one race that is a fact) anyway moving right along then you get the ones that say Native American well to me that is a person of Indian descent. You know Cherokee, Blackfoot, Sioux etc... Caucasian is a person who is white not of color. A person who is Indian is in my opionion from the Philippines, India etc. So what do you think?? How do we determine what our race is, when no one else seems to know?? Personally I"m caucasian all white except for the freckles i have left. But even our spammers don't know the difference

Now I'm NOT trying to be a trouble child here seriously look at what people send you and look you have a white man saying he's native american.

I've wondered that before. You see somone's pic and then they say they are Native American and Hispanic and look white

I'm just caucasian - with lots of German in me. Probably a mixture of some other shit I don't know about too.

At this point I really don't think it matters...a spammer is a spammer. As far as ethnicity is concerned...at this point someone from some group of people has been intertwined with one of another group and some have been intertwined with many differents groups, so i say we are people of many recipes. Ones with more predominant color in their skin, just shows us that a particular color popped in for a bit and made part of the mix more obvious. I am a mix of many. I only know of three, but I bet there are more in my recipe than can be guessed. To truly know we would all have to be tested...and I bet that would get a stunned look out of some!

With those spots on you, do you think maybe your part Lepard ?

My self it does not matter because most people now-a-days are mixed race.
I beleave we are all one race. The Human race. I look at people for what's in thier
hearts, not the color of thier skin, or where they are from.

I remember in my previous job having to determine ethnicity. I asked what race is a arab. After some research we found that anyone in Pakistan or east of there is Asian. Anyone from Afghanistan west is Caucasian. If a north African country borders the Mediterranean Sea, the people are Caucasian, otherwise African. If they reside in Antarctica they are a penguin.

Physical anthropologists have determined over the last few decades that using traditional scientific methods of ethnography and DNA tracing, it is impossible to create a taxonomic system for different "races" among people. At this point there is pretty much no one left with exclusively the genetic makeup of one original race (this is by the way, only a few dozen bits of genetic code out of several billion, and they're considered "characteristic" of a race, not essential). And there likely hasn't been since not long after the ice age.

Ethnicity is equally impossible to categorize because it's completely set by free will- for example, Lakota woman marries into Huron tribe, she is now Huron, and their kids are 100% Huron. Just think about how many completely made up terms there are for different Latino "breeds" based on what portions of Native, Spaniard, and African you have.

This is going to sound like it's just playing up to stereotypes, but it's pretty much the only way to define people's ethnicity, if you must. You have to go by the culture they identify with. It's messy, but going by blood is much messier- and not really accurate.

My mother was full blood Cherokee and my father was full blood Blackfoot...So I guess that makes me a Native American!!

Almost everyone you know actually qualifies for at least two of these "slash American" sobriquets. And the majority of those initially using a "slash American" term to describe their extraction qualify to use "Stupid-American" as the second.

Well I was born in America....that makes me an American...end of that story.

As for heritage, I am Scottish/Irish on Mom's side and German on Dad's. So where did my dark complexion, brown eyes, dark brown hair (nearly black when I was young) come from....

We're all Heinz 57 variety...and no one that I know of makes a partner fill out a resume before we procreate with them to establish their ethnicity.

I do know this. My great Grandma many times over came from Ireland and worked in the fields. She had a tormenter that pushed her too far and she killed him with a scythe and they smuggled her out of the country. My point? Don't fuck with me...

Funny.....google "ancestry test" and see how many places offer services.
And validity in question or not...many groups and instituitons are accepting the results, even in minor percentages, even as little as 2% .
