Last time I went to the doctor, he said I was Caucasian, which I thought meant that I was a dick from Asia.

I always thought that most people are now mutts and are a mix of many different nationalities. It will be worse if the future and most races will almost look the same, if we don't kill ourselves. :confused:

Hybrid vigour rules.

The poll assumes ethnic purity.

Perchance my folks are of Irish and English ancestry, but being born in a country that draws its population from all over, I know plenty of mongrels.

I think you are mixing races and ethnic groups in the poll. Caucasian is not an ethnicity, it is a race.

Can't one be African/Hispanic and also be Caucasian?

But what are you really?
Colloquially speaking, I'd say I'm white.

If there's someone higher up in my family tree who isn't, I don't know who they would be, or how far removed from me they are. But it's possible I have some amount of DNA that comes from a different race.

That's correct. Maybe we need another thread for race.

I think you are overthinking this too much. Just check whatever you think you look like.

Just no! I am just interested in how colorful this forum is and in peoples background in that regard.
No "race-science" stuff for god sake!

After 1940-1945, I was always warned about people, and especially Germans, who asked questions about one’s ethnicity.:(

It has to much of that dreaded "ausweis bitte"
