    For ex, I consider myself black because I have bti of morrocan in me although mostly south asian blood. So when I say I am black people give me shit but inside I feel more black then anything.

    Does anyone feel this problem?

    Total mutt here, mostly a lily-white-as-cracka here though, with a few bits of Native American and possibly a Jew or two in the family shrubbery.

    Huh... Since you're in Canada I can't really comment on what it might be like to be black there or to consider yourself black. In the US, blackness means some specific things... You wouldn't qualify at all.

    ____

    As for me, I'm Polish and Native American (Choktaw). Pale enough that I burn in sunlight (there's no sunshine in Poland... we're a very sad people), but Native enough that I don't grow facial hair. Bah.

    I simply tell people that I'm Hispanic (which in my case translates to 1/2 Mexican (Amerindian, Basque), 1/4 German, 1/4 Portuguese)

    Alphatrigger, most ppl would say you are white unless ofcourse you have a interesting personality.

    TropicalMark, I am glad you feel human

    Larkin, what do you mean in USA I would not be considered black?

    And this thread about what race you identify with, which may or may not be same as your actual racial mix.

    I mean that "A bit of Moroccan and mostly South Asian" isn't considered "black" in the US. You'd probably be more Indian, or be mistaken for Arab.

    So if I told you I was black you would not believe me?

    My parents never told me their ancestry, but they're both from Mexico. So I guess that makes me Mexican.

    So being black is just a type of personality?... news to me.


    I'm half colombian half black. Often mistaken for Cuban, Dominican, Brazilian, or some sort of Middle Eastern decent.

    Al-Bhed, bitch. icon_razz.gif

    Like most black Americans, I'm a clusterfuck of different West African tribes, a sprinkle of Irish/slaveowner, and a bit of Native American.

    For all intents and purposes, I'm black.

    If you told me you were black, I'd say "Ok, whatever." I would not guess you were black as I understand black as an American.
