and there's me. black ppl consider me asian.
and asian ppl consider me black. neutral


Interesting. Any reason why that is?

idk they're narrow minded. i'm a quarter black and 3/4 asian.


I have a friend who is half African and Japanese. He's quiet, a deep thinker, and is just hard on himself at times. He's really cool, though. However, nobody notices that he's half Japanese unless he tells them. And he's not the type to lie about his background. I think half black and Asian is interesting.

Dont they have DNA tests for that


Yes. We have genealogical testing now, we have mapped the genome, and it does not tell us what 'race' people are. It tells us where you hailed from. It tells us what tribes in what parts of the world your ancestors lived in.

If you wanted to find out what 'race' you are, you wouldn't have a test you could take. because the scientific community does not use the term the way that the common american uses the term. The closest related scientific terminology would be 'peoples'. And those are more closely related to populations.

If we were to solve this problem by segregating people into their own countries, how would you define Dymee Piecee? Is she negroid? Is she Mongoloid? What is it based off of? What do the ratios have to be to meet the standard?

Everyone in my immediate family is interracial. My grandfather is German and my grandmother is Indian. I don't really look like any particular ethnicity in general because I look so racially ambiguous. It's really never come up in my life.
