My Fiance asked me this last night, and before I even answered him, I said “This would be a fun question to ask on WB!” He rolled his eyes (he thinks I’m obsessed haha) but I answered Japanese. I’m half Caucasian (Scottish/perhaps French – dad was adopted so we don’t really know what “type” of Caucasian we are,) half Chinese, but I’ve always been fascinated by the Japanese culture. After visiting Japan 2 years ago, it confirmed my fascination and I can’t wait to go back!
So, if you could be any other ethnicity for a day, which one would it be? State your enthnicity too! And if you wouldn’t want to change, that’s fine, but no need to post about it! It’s just for fun 🙂

I’m white (scottish, german, welsh, and bohemian). I’ve always wished that my family was more closely tied to an actual culture rather than being so far removed. I’m sure the “grass is always greener” but I always tend to think that darker skinned women are really beautiful and i always wanted to be Princess Jasmine when I was little so I guess I’d say if I could try out another ethnicity it would be somewhere in the Mediterranean/middle eastern/indian realm.

I think I would choose an ethnicity with an amazing food culture. I’m Chinese and I do NOT like Chinese food! And I had to eat it all the time, which only made me hate it more. I loooove Italian, Greek, and Indian food, so maybe one of those 🙂

I’m fair with blonde hair and blue eyes – classic Nordic looks. Sometimes I wish I was part South American or something. I have a friend who has dark olive skin, blue eyes, and this amazing dark brown hair. She has such a beautiful and unique look to her! I wish I had that look at times.

totally agree with the dark skin light eyes!!! When I’m tanned, I have been asked if I’m other races (Spanish or Native!) because I have green eyes – not typical for a person with Asian background!!

I would choose an ethnic background that gave me thick dark hair, most definitely, but let me keep my green eyes 😉 . I have baby fine “white girl” hair and I hate it. I am your average American “mutt” but primarily Scottish, Irish, and German. Pale, green eyes, skin tends towards pink. I live in an area with a high Hispanic population and I have grown up being jealous of my friends with their thick dark hair. My FIs hair is raven black and shiny (she is Mexican/white) and I am sooo envious!
Okay I’m not totally hair obessed, really!
Honestly I would like to have a cultural identification along with this dark hair that I lust after, so I would be happy to choose any background that is known for large families, strong family ties and keeping cultural traditions alive. Not to get off on a tangent, but I feel very disconnected from my cultural heritage, you know? I have Irish and Scottish ancestors that are just as recent in the family line (and were immigrants to this country) as my friends ancestors who were Mexican ..but they strongly ID as Mexican and have all of these traditions and yet it’s not the same for me. I grew up with a “tiny” family. Just me, mom, my brother… and so many of my friends and peers here have such large families. Even my Fiance, who was raised an only child, “discovered” her extended family (the Mexican side) as an adult and they instantly embraced her as ‘one of their own’. Yeah I am jealous!
Sorry, not trying to detrail anything!

I’m a mix, Italian, Irish, Native, and English. I want to be every thing! Seriously I have written and rewritten this post a million times, each time saying how much I would love to be this or that, so I think I’d like to spend a day being every different ethnicity.

I’m white (Scottish and Canadian) and I have fine blonde hair with blue eyes. If I had to choose just ONE ethnicity (since I’d love to be anything other than what I am now), I think that I would have to choose African-American. I have always loved the confidence, the family structure (not saying that I don’t have an amazing one already!) and the way Black women speak.

i am italian and serbian. I have olive skin with brown hair and eyes. But I always wanted to be Greek. I don’t know why. Even though Greek and Italian are very similar, I always said to myself if I could switch my 1 quarter serbian with another ethinicity, it would be Greek! Oopa! (to all of you Greek bees, I know I spelled that wrong!)

My family has been in the US long enough that we have a little bit of all the caucasian nations in us. It would be neat to claim that I was just one thing, haha. My fiance’s family immigrated more recently, so he can say he’s German and Czech. Saying I’m English-German-ScotchIrish-French-Dutch doesn’t exactly have the same ring to it…

Italian. My initial thought was Native American Indian because I almost look that way anyway..but culturally I think Italian would be fun. I’d love to be dark and exotic and I bet their lifestyle is really fun! I LOVED every place I went in Italy!

Unfortunately, I’ve wished pretty much all my life that I could be a different race. I’m a Korean adoptee raised by white parents in a community that is pretty much 50 percent white/50 percent black. I never knew Asian people growing up, never had any Asian role models, teachers, friends, or saw Asians on TV. I definitely have always identified with white culture (due to how I was raised) and always hated my almond shaped eyes and cheekbones. I hated how different I looked and always felt like a freak.
Anyway, now I’m just learning to be me and accept myself for who I am and enjoy my culture. It’s pathetic, but I’m a Korean who hasn’t had Korean food before…Still getting there.

Hmm, it isn’t really a different “ethnicity” but I always swore I was supposed to have been British and grow up in the UK. After my parents got transferred to London it only affirmed my belief that I was born in the wrong country. lol.
If we’re talking ethnic change though…. I would have to go with Hawaiian 🙂 It’s rare, it’s gorgeous, and I would get to live somewhere amazing…
