Re: What ethnicity are you?

White. And my family is solid German on both sides.

My great grandparents were the last to actually be born in Germany, although I almost was - my parents came back right before I was born (my dad was stationed there whilst in the Army). So I was almost a dual citizen!

Yep. Ethnicity means nothing to me: I'm an Italian living in Italy. We had the Umbrians, Oscans, Celts, Latins, Greeks, Phoenicians, Vandals, Goths, Huns, Longobards, Franks, Byzantines, Normans, Arabs, Spaniards, French, Austrians, Americans: and that's just the main invasions. The idea of being "white" is silly to me: at most I'm pink with sienna overtones.

Re: What ethnicity are you?

White of Irish (Orange and Quakers), Scottish, English and possibly Hugenot descent. One of my ancestors was black. However we aren't sure if she was Aboriginal or the daughter of a black seaman/or convict, she might have even been a South Sea Islander. Her last name was Smith so she is has been difficult to trace.

With no intention to offend anyone, but while I can accept being related to my friend's dog (she is such a lovely animal), being related to baobabs is pretty difficult for me stomach. I mean, they are damn ugly.

That's not saying much, Rome fucked a lot of people! It's sort of what they do.

My little sister is like that, but her hair is jet black. This girl is so pale that when a friend of mine visited and saw a photo of both my sisters and I, in which I'm wearing blue, my older sister is in green, and my pale little sister is in black, she said, "That's a cool picture, but why are you and Rachel in color and Flo black and white? Ohhhhhhh....."

ETA: Since when did the BBS start thanking me for my posts. It's polite and all, but kind of annoying.

I am choosing to believe it is for statistical purposes only.

White - Primarily Irish (Dad's side)and German (Mom's side) decent.
