    It's because Latino is the new majority minority. But in 30 years they'll be the majority so Latino will be the new White and White will be the new Latino, or will White be the new Black? Or will there be so many people who are Latino-White-Black mix that we'll be calling ourselves Brazilian? Where do you think Asians belong in all this? Are there any Blatinos on this site? Because I love Blatinos.

    You are correct.

    Having sex with latinos is very slimming. And standing next to one of their peacocks makes me almost disappear.

    Well, you look brazilian, blatino, Puerto Rican, Dominican because you have about the same percentage mix of different ethnicities as they do. You are part black and part white. So are they but maybe with a little bit of indigenous South American in them too. The only reason they are labeled by their nationality and you are labeled by your origins is that South America's melting pot is far more rapid than the US. To be "American" in The United States of America does not imply anything about a certain race, because all races are accepted as American. The US is one of the few countries where nationality clearly has nothing to do with ethnicity. South America and many other counties have a different story in most cases.

    Today, I was in Home Depot getting mulch for the yard. Lots and lots of mulch. Some white guy walked up to me and started speaking to me in bad Spanish. I'm Jewish. I responded saying, "Would it be easier if we had this conversation in English?" FML.

    Today, (ok, a couple of years ago) a police officer pulled me over and asked, "what race are you?" "huh?" "Cuz you kind of look black." He's black. No, I didn't get a ticket.

    My partner's from Ecuador and now people start talking to me in Spanish, assuming I'm fluent. I took some Spanish in HS and college, but my Spanish is terrible. I just smile and nod now and ask my partner later what the conversation was all about.

    It's strange, because here in my town (Adelaide, Australia) we have such a multicultural little town that we don't really care much about race.

    I enjoy a good looking man in any colour or skin.

    icon_lol.gif funny eps.

    But it is interesting to ponder what will happen in 30 yrs.

    jakebensonBut in 30 years they'll be the majority so Latino will be the new White and White will be the new Latino, or will White be the new Black? Or will there be so many people who are Latino-White-Black mix that we'll be calling ourselves Brazilian?


    My best friend made the same joke last week.icon_lol.gif

    We are both "Latino-Black-White" mixed and it's funny what ethnicity people have mistaken us for. He's fluent in Spanish. I'm the broken one... can't speak it but understand some Spanish.icon_lol.gificon_cry.gif

    I get this quite often. What's even more weird is when some people get offended that I don't speak Hindi, or even get mad at me for appearing Indian.

    I've also been mistaken for Italian, which I don't see.

    Maybe he was hitting on you or it was a very, very "good" tan.

    In 30 years time the whites will be black and the blacks white thanks to advances in cosmetic surgery. Kinda indicative of how fucked up we all are.

    Oh im on the same boat...i think in the end ethnicity is just a determining factor of certain physical attributes that others pay for. I was born with a nice tan so no tanning booths for me. But beyond that i have had people ask if i was:

    Italian
    Indian
    Turkish
    Greek
    Spanish
    Puerto Rican
    Arabic
    British
    Persian
    Russian...yea theres an interesting story behind that one

    They never guess the right one tho...and yes its only one ethnicity, a shame im not a mix but a purebred :/

    Filipino here. I've only been mistaken for Mexican, Black, Indonesian and Chinese. Though I think I have a tiny bit of Chinese and Spanish blood on my dad's side.

    If I remember correctly, Asian-Americans are the third largest minority group in the US, and the largest ethnicities within the Asian-American minority group are Chinese, Filipinos, and Indians.

    Though I have noticed that the majority of mixed-race individuals with Asian blood in them are usually Asian-White mixes. Or maybe it's just me?...
