  • I am an "American mutt", mixed from Polish, French, and Italian, primarily...but because I have dark hair and eyes, and a slightly tan skin tone, EVERYBODY thinks I'm mixed race. When I'm with LP who is half Japanese or with one of my besties who is half Filipino, I must be half Asian (nobody ever attempts to narrow down which "variety" LOL), when I'm with my black girlfriends, they think I'm half black, when I'm with my Hispanic friends, I must be half Hispanic. LOL! I'm like the commercial that talks about being racially ambiguous.

  • I'm half Mexican and half salvadorian, but everyone has their own opinion. I have heard, puerto rican, black, Italian and mixed with everything...LOL. I remember over hearing a gf of mine telling her gf that I was extremely exotic looking and she thought it was real cool and I was pretty. I didn't know she thought that I looked so "exotic" is pretty funny to me

  • Everyone always ask me if I am mixed but I am not. This one lady asked if I was from Bahamas for whatever reason. Most ppl think I am Caucasan but I am black, just very light.
