Will my question be closed if I inquiry about Cafemoms members race?

My father has family from Philippines and my mom is hispanic. So when people see me they think I'm latino.

  • I think you would gain better insight if you set up a POLL question!

    If you go to anyone of your groups, you can ask your question, and below where your signature would go, is a link to "add a poll" which will take you step by step through the process. Then you can track your answers for whatever reason you need/want.

  • I am Caucasian.

    I am American.

    I know exactly where all of my ancestors are from, but as my ancestors have all been here since before the U.S. Constitution existed  I think it is safe to say that I am American.

  • I think it depends on how you ask. This word is seeping with so much political correctness that you have to watch how you say anything anymore.

    I'm white and I don't rightly care where my ancestors are from, I'm American and that's all that matters to me.

    The answer to your question is, maybe.

    You didn't actually ask anyone their race. But to answer that, I'm white.

  • I dont think they will close it for that. But if you were bashing any given race, I think they might remove the question.

  • No it should not be closed. I am caucasian. a lot of people think I am German/from germany.  But I am not.  I am german american.
