Oh wow!! I am so pleased to see that most people here are not "white"! As a white boy from the U.S. I just assume that every collection of people that I don't know about is white. That is so stupid, and I am so glad to see how things shake out here, because it pointed out to me how eurocentric my thinking really is, in spite of watching nothing but asian dramas and anime for two years!!

It's funny though, when I go to Korean restaurants, Korean people speak to me in Korean. When I go to FIlipino restaurants, Filipino people speak to me in Filipino. (I love Korean and Filipino food!) But when I go to Japanese restaurants, Japanese people speak to me in English! :lol Lots of my Japanese friends from Japan say I don't look Japanese though.
lol that's funny!!! Haha. I get spoken to in all different languages. It's hard to tell a person's ethnicity sometimes. I'm Korean, btw, but I think I answered this poll already... but I just laughed when I saw this post :D

Yes interesting poll, maybe a bit unfair for those not listed, but otherwise if everyone could list his own ethnicity it'd become a neverending list ^__^

Italian, 100% as far as I know... proud of it, but I also envy those who have lots of bloods in them!! :-)

I hope my children could be 1/2 italian and 1/2 japanese eheh!! :wub:

This isn't really ethnicity at all. There are a lot of ethnic groups within those countries, never mind "European" and "Southeast Asian." I think you were thinking nationality or origin.

I'm Kurdish, btw.

I'm a mix that says basically half European half Asian....

I'm as far as I know:
Indonesian(most part)
Dutch(after Indonesian the most probably, one of my grandpa was full Dutch I guess)
And now the bits:
Chinese(granny of my mom was full blod)
Hindustan(a granny of grandpa of my dad was a Hindu)
English(dunno this one exactly anymore)
German(a granny/grandpa of I guess my father was half)
French(a granny/grandpa of I guess my father was half)
Jewish(my mother's mom side something...)

And that's about it?
I don't really feel like discorvering more because it's creeping me out XD!
I'm referring myself as Indo(<-meaning half Indosian half Dutch in NL) if people ask ^^''...

I find it really hard for people to believe that you're Japanese and Korean if you're Cambodian, cause most cambodians aren't light skinned and don't have features that japanese and korean people do, even if you're part chinese.

I understand why you would think that it is hard to believe, but that’s how it is for me (I was only trying to share my story :-( ). And yes most Cambodians do have dark skin, but I guess I’m one of the “odd” ones who is light skinned and has different features than most ppl of my ethnicity (eee. . . I think I just painted a scary picture of myself . . . lol :P )

Come on now, I'm sure it's not so scary. And yes, I've seen some cambodian people that I could swear that they'd be Japanese or Korean. Pretty interesting. They all look nice so it's ok. I'm hispanic by the way, and no, I didn't go to the "March\protest" thing, if your wondering. I don't remember if I've posted here before.. :sweat:
