yeah I thought of the Louis CK bit right away too when reading this thread...

being Caucasian just looks too good on a resume...I don't think I would add anything but more caucasianess ;)


I would love to be black for a week or two though...I would just go around jumping in front of old white people screaming at the top of my lungs...

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

1) what are your roots?
Mother is black, father is Puerto Rican. I have a bunch of other blood mixed in from my mother's side; blackfoot indian is the main one i can remember.

2) if you could have any particular extra roots in a culture / ethnicity of your choice, what would it be?
I'm cool with just being black. Nothing against non-blacks, but if i had to be reborn, i'd choose black again. We're the coolest people on the planet. We just need a better love for education as oppose to a love of money.


3) any particular comments about being the species that you are? like, positive or negative?
Black people are disappointing when i consider our history. From slaves, to flourishing communities of doctors and businessmen, to pimps, hoes, drug dealers, and addicts. We can be such a greater people (especially considering our small population) that i don't understand why we appear to have the least unity of all the races in America.

A positive thing i like about being black is that no matter where i am, i never feel like a stranger when around other black people. If i'm walking down the street and another black person is passing by, we always acknowledge each other with a head nod or hello. I like that small sense of community, if you can call it that.

I also like that our population is around 8 or 9 percent. Despite how much people say we pop out babies, compared to the mexican our numbers are actually decreasing in this country (jail has a lot to do with that), but the smaller our numbers are, the more hope there is for getting our culture back on track. I can't wait for that day.

Question brotha pauk?

Why the f*ck are Montenegron guys so fukking tall and Albos so fukkin short?
Also why are Romanian/Bulgo/Albo girls so fukking gorgeous and feminine and Greek/Macedonian women so goddamn fat and hairy and manly looking? (No offense)

Furthermore, why does one part of SE europe have a bunch of stocky bearded Muslim looking guys who are strong as fukk and participate in organ human traffiking while the other part has a bunch of -ovic sounding dudes who like to camp by the baseline and shoot threes and smoke all day and eat cevapi.

Furthermore, do all of you collectively hate the Serbs? I know the Kosovo/Bos/Albo Muslims and the Christian Croatins aren't the bset of friend, but they seem to be a-okay.

1. I'm caucasian.

2. Melanesian probably, those black people with blond hair is unique, and I look like pretty average here.

3. I honestly do not think there's positive or negative things according to what race you are. Except those imposed by our racist culture, and some minor differences in our physical ability, but they are only noticeable when it comes to professional sports or things like that.

On the other hand a curious thing I can tell you, is that many people in the U.S. think that the Spaniards are not white and Spain is close to Mexico.

If you want negative, growing up i felt like we had a lot of victim culture going on. Woe is us, we are picked on, nobody gives us a break. Which at times was true (i've went into detail prior on this board about the shit i took from cops growing up essentially doing nothing). But goign woe is me and not trying to better yourself pisses me off. It's much less now i think.



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?

Because:



On a more serious note, Albanians are a completely different ethnicity from us SLAVS (Croats, Slovenians, Serbs, Bosnians, Macedonians, Montenegrins)... so it might have something to do with that

Whoa, you have then seen some very random people... because by majority any other balkan women/men > albanian men/women... trust me.. Croatian/Bosnian/Slovenian/Montenegrin women are the most beautiful... and the hardest ones to tame.. :)


Quote:

lmao.... Anyways, its just an ideology presented to us (slavs) by the Turks very long time ago, we are all the same people/culture/language really.... except the Albos... Islam is very different here culturally, what you see/learn from Islam as an American is very stereotypic and very Arabic/middleeastern, the women wearing headscarfs, the men with the beards and turbans and white pyjamas... lol... that is more about culture rather than religion, non of that is obligatory as a Muslim haha... its just like the Christian culture difference in Sweden and Mexico... understand?? But here, you wont see the difference between a Christian or Muslim woman/man here in any way... unless that Muslim is from Saudi Arabia and that Christian is from Mexico or Africa or something....

Because that is life here! We are born with a sports ball in one hand and Cevapi or Pita or Cufte or Burek on the other! Those calories need to be burned somehow, but we dont like to overwork, shooting threes is as far is it goes and thats why we are good at it, lol

Nah, generally all (including Slovenians, Croats, especially Croats) hate/hated Serbs more than anybody else, mostly due to their politics and support for what happened in the 90s for example... has nothing to do with religion, trust me, how else would you explain Serbs genocide, war on Croats???? Croats hate Serbs probably more than anybody.... Its not Serbian peoples fault entirely, its their dictators fault Milosevic.... dude was crazy, tried to overtake all Yugoslavian states so it should be called Serbia, he literally was the reason to everything that happened to Yugoslavia...

The hate is generally over right now, its all love and peace, i have friends of all corners, we never mention politics, we try to move on, not forget, but just move on.... the only conflict that still exists and will probably never vanish completely is between Albanians and Serbs in Kosovo........

PS: Albanians (Sqiptars) migrated to Yugoslavia, they are not Slavs like everybody else and dont speak our language and most of them cant speak our language to this day which is Slovenian, Croatian, Bosnian, Serbian, Macedonian, Montegrin, all the same really, just dialects... with that last part being said you can now maybe imagine how stupid this war was, its like if California battles Arizona, Texas or something causing all those states to split from "USA" and now are their own nations/countries... :

PS #2: What a god damn shame Yugoslavia split up, we dominated basketball and would dominate basketball still to this day in Europe... and even given USA the best fight they ever had in the Olympics and maybe even win due to the teamwork, effort & will... :)
