Default What is your ethnicity? (and two bonus questions)

for some reason i'm kind of fascinated by the origins of people. feel like sharing?



1) what are your roots?


2) if you could have any particular extra roots in a culture / ethnicity of your choice, what would it be?


3) any particular comments about being the species that you are? like, positive or negative?




myself, i'm half peruvian (born there), one quarter german, one quarter english. but if i could add another influence, it would be celtic (like irish / scottish / welsh / old french) or asian (chinese or japanese). and yes, i'm proud to be peruvian, but still embarrassed that my spanish is so primitive (after age four i grew up in the USA).


you?

Default Re: What is your ethnicity? (and two bonus questions)

Mexican is my ancestry from both sides of my family. My parents come from the same city and state (Culiacan, Sinaloa) From mine and my fathers pale skin tone and family color of past generations and the information I've received, most of my ancestors were of Spanish origin and indigenous native Mexicans. I know of no specifics.

I was born in Los Angeles and have lived here in California all my life but have traveled to Mexico quite frequently throughout my life. I have always been content with being Mexican, although I would have hated to be dark in skin color. Since im not, the race and origin of where I come from doesn't really bother me in the least. Ive always leaned towards being what some people would consider 'acting white' but wouldn't really wish to be Caucasian or anything. Most Mexicans that describe with that phrase are usually ignorant people anyway.

Caucasian, German/Irish/Dutch/Scottish/other ancestry. If I could add something, maybe a bit of black. Not too much though ;)

That's the racial make up of like 75-80% of the Mexican population.

I'm Filipino, but around 1/10-1/8 Spanish. Both my parents came from families which had pure Spanish roots, with a little Chinese blood thrown in from my grandpa on my mom's side. Wouldn't really wanna change a thing as our culture's so diverse and the history, however point of view it may come from, will always provide a great blend of information, philosophy, and narrative. Regarding the last question, well, I think we tend to bring the wrong people into office. Oftentimes, the elections really just becomes a popularity contest, which explains the number of former and current celebrities and media personalities who are now politicians. Then again, everyone accusses everyone of corruption here. Will think of other comments later (but probably due to our "manana" habit, I'll probably put that off til much later on )

Mexican. Both of my parents were born in Mexico (Jalisco), my great grandfather from my dad side was born in Spain, my grandma from my mom side is light skinned with blue eyes, I'm guessing she has some french in her blood and I'm also guessing I have some native american blood since I saw alot of Native American writings on rocks when I visited my Dad's hometown in Mexico. Both of my parents look Mexican, although there are times when my Dad's brown eyes do look hazel. I have black hair & brown eyes and for the most part look like your average Mexican born in America (Born in the Bay Area).

1. White: Polish, Slavic and Welsh.. (those are the majority anyhow).

2. Maybe that Latin gene that makes them dance so damned good.

3. Louis CK said it best: Louis CK <---- A must watch.
