I'm Mexican, Italian, and French Basq. Most people... don't really know what I am. I have been asked if I was Asian, Middle Eastern, Indian, Native American... xD

Define "mixed" because I'm sure almost everyone has mixed ethnicity now-a-days in the U.S at least. I'm Irish, Welsh, Croatian, Native American, and German for instance XD

Yes. I don't think I've met anyone who has said, "I am 100% this!" Especially in California. xD

Lawl ok XD Just wondering, because I've heard people use the term "mixed" for people who are primarily "black/white" or "black/asian" etc... XD

Really? o__o I've always used the term for people who are more then one race. That's so odd...

Yeah I mean, that is just what I am used to. But then again, I live on the East Coast in an area that is primarily white :\ so that probably explains it.

I'm mostly Mexican and Irish/German with a little bit of Dutch and asian thrown in. My husband is half Vietnamese and half mixed European. I agree that is seems most people in the US now are multiracial.

I'm half Japanese and half German. No Axis jokes please. >.>;

Most people can assume I'm Asian at first glance due to my facial features but my height and body type totally throws people off. Some like to guess at what I am, the weirdest one I got was the very serious guess that I was Russian. Not that Russian's aren't awesome but I'm not sure how they came to this conclusion since they knew my last name which is quite obviously Japanese. (Seriously, my last name begins with 'Yoshi'...)

im a pacific islander of indo-fijian decent, however many people just "assume" im african american in till they (and without permission for the most part) mess, touch, and fiddle with my hair, then and only then do people reconsider what i told them before in regards to my race. <---this annoys me to no end really, however im starting to get used to it.

No one ever seems to be able to guess what I am, unless they go by my last name, which is sort of a dead give away. I welcome anyone to try to guess though.

Honestly, however, who cares if anyone is mixed? As Ithilia said, hardly anyone can claim a "pure" bloodline, now days, at least.
