    I said that my SO is the same ethnicity as me, but he might argue that point. He claims that “Ginger” is its own ethnicity.

    Both my parents were adopted, so I have no idea! “White,” but I have no claimed ethnicity. People take that kind of thing for granted. If you know what you are, celebrate your roots!

    My dad is African American, and he did one of those DNA kits and discovered he’s also Norwegian and native American (he knew that one).

    My mom is third generation Russian on her mother’s side, but her dad had a Spaniard mom and a Lithuanian dad. My grandma recently decided to start investigating which ethnic group in Russia her parents came from, because she thinks there might be Asian influence.

    So I’m black/european :) I have super curly brown hair, light brown eyes, and cafe au lait skin. I’m most often taken for puerto rican or greek.

    Edit: DH is white, Irish on his dads side and scandinavian on his mom’s. There’s some NA on his mom’s side somewhere, but they all have light hair and blue eyes so it’s not exactly affecting the phenotype.

    I’m about as pasty white as they come.

    I voted that DH is the same ethnicity as me, because he mostly is, but I guess it could maybe be argued that he’s mixed because he’s 1/128th Cherokee.  But really, he’s just white.

    @Ellegee:  I bet that mixes to look like a whole lot of fabulous. I am African American but my skin looks Middle Eastern, my hair is wavy, my eyes look Asian, my body looks like a White girl and I have the soul and lips of an African queen. I would assume that my background is mixed with a little of everything. It would be cool to figure it out for sure though. My SO is African American.

    I’m half Puerto Rican, half black. I just say I’m black.

    My fiance is black.

    I’m Caucasian, but my mother is from Colombia (but doesn’t identify as Hispanic), and my dad is from Israel. Our family is from Eastern Europe. I’m a first generation American. I’m pale with dark hair and eyes.

    FI is Caucasian (blonde and blue-eyed), and his family is from the Midwest, and beyond that, from England and Germany. Surprising, considering I dated several Hispanic guys and prefer dark skin and dark hair!

    @Soladylike:  Do you have brothers? Have them do the DNA thing, or even your dad! It’s more accurate for men because of some chromosomal thing. They could even trace which area/tribe in Africa my dads ancestors came from.
