  • I can pass for Latina eventhough I'm white. I'm Italian and sometimes people mix us up.

  • I went to Costa Rica once for a work and witness trip. And the guide their kept telling everyone else what to do and not me. And finally when at the end of the day I was talking to my mom and she looked at me and said "wait, your with them?" And I said yeah... she was like I thought you were Latino! I wasn't offended on bit. I think Latinos are BEAUTIFUL. :)

  • yes. All the time! I am very fair skinned, blue eyes but even arab people come up to me thinking i am arab because i am muslim. There are 3 muslim women in my area and we are always being mistaken for eachother. I was pregnant at the same time and went to the same doctor as one girl. They seriously got us confused every visit. It was annoying.

  • I'm an american mutt. But I have had people call me asian, chinese, japanese. I've actually had people argue with me over my heritage! Insisting that I shouldn't be ashamed!
