    I am supposed to start packing for my big move on Sunday but thought this question was more important. Why? Because I woke up too damn early this morning and now I am tired and lazy.

    Wait, so you didn't want to hang out with me tonight because you were "hungry" but now you have free time, in fact so much free time that you're arbitrarily pondering changing races? Lame bro.

    Jeez......inside conversation much? I feel like i just walked in on you guys having a threesome. (discreetly exits and shuts the door)

    Anyways, my mom is black, my dad is black. People have mistook me for all the following (yes, I write this down)


    Egyptian
    Albanian
    Romanian
    Russian
    Italian
    Filipino
    thai
    indian
    pakistani
    puerto rican
    dominican
    panamanian
    hawaiian
    indonesian
    arab (but to be fair im 1/8 )
    brazilian
    mexican
    mongolian


    Some people even like to mix it up

    black+korean
    Black+japanese
    Black+indian
    White+black
    White+indian
    Black+puerto rican
    Black +filipino (jake) : )

    and the list goes on and on.

    Anyone with eyeballs can see that most of those guesses are just epic fails. So I am inclined (based on the cluelessness of others regarding the phenotypical features of different races) to say that you could pass for black. You look cantonese to me but you get a nice tan in the summer time and you're booty-licious. I say Go for it.

    LOL this thread went from casual levity to race rants in 9 posts.

    While we're on the topic of "What I get mistaken for,"

    People mistake me for Armenian, Israeli, and Italian. But oh my god I'm totally Russian, German, Polish, Scottish, and Spanish HOW COULD YOU GUYS NOT KNOW THIS?!?

    Yup. If a black guy says you're black then you're black.

    Can I pass for being a black man?

    Wrong question for me. Not once in 62 years have I ever seen a Black person, nor a White one. That would be freakish.

    Nor have I seen someone who was Yellow or Red. What I have seen is different skin shades, from lighter to darker. But I've seen none of the colors that are frequently used to describe people, particularly racially. I'm no more white myself than you are likely black.

    I hate this literal black-and-white division of people. It doesn't exist in reality. What does exist are lighter and darker skin shades.

    OK, I can see those different skin shades. And that demonstrates... what? That your ancestors came from a tropical zone, as some scientists theorize, and mine came from colder northern Europe? And again, that means... what?

    Not an awful lot, as far as I'm concerned. Humans are humans, and skin shading is no more important to me than your height, or weight, or age, or gender, or many other things.

    I HATE when I have to identify myself as WHITE. I'm not white. I hold a piece of white writing paper against my arm, and I'm not white like that at all. Nor is anybody else Black, or Red, or Yellow. Sorry guys, but I have no use for these Eurocentric terms. I wish we could just dispense with them. icon_sad.gif

    Red & Yellow are undertones that people have to their skin. There are more undertone colors but I'm not getting into that lol

    Just tell whoever that you are a black man.
    If they question you, just say, "You think because I don't look dark I can't be black? That's racist!"
    It will shut them up fast.

    Unless they say "that's racist" to me and I'll go off on them like a mentally retarded hungry Chihuahua that just got scared by a fog horn.
