Proud European American; that being said ...

A Jamaican man being called African, even though he is Jamaican.

A Mexican woman being called Dominican, even though she is Mexican.

A Peruvian being called Puerto Rican, even though they are Peruvian.

A Palestinian being called Israeli, even though they are Palestinian.

A German being called Caucasian, even though they are German.

A French being called White, even though they are from France...

Get the picture....We are all Americans, that's part of the problem with some....

Human.

I don't believe in race; it is fictitious and man made, menat to divide and seperate. We are all humans, that's the only race there is. Answer this question and you can change my mind:

I'm 1/2 Greek (Dad came here when he was 20), mom's side is German, British and a little bit Native American. My wife is Filipino, but her paternal side has Spanish and Portuguese blood. What race is my daughter?

The fictitious concept of race is so absurd; look at the illegal immigration debate, those opposed to it were often times labeled "racist". Mexican is a nationality not a race.

I marked "other" just like I mark on applications and such. I don't believe in pure race, but if you want to get technical I guess middle eastern = white/caucasian, although my decedents are from North Africa and Spain.

Really?
How can you tell the difference between the White dude who posts and the Yellow dude, and the Brown dude, and the Black dude?
Race on a forum is sort of arbitrary, I always think of everyone across the computer screen as white. With the exception of a few people.
Sorry if i killed it for you XD..........

My race is the Rock and Roll Marathon in Tempe I like the running and Music.

Really? Why would it matter??????

If your from this city or that OK, if your a republican or a democrat OK, if you like beer or like wine OK, but Race has no place in threading. I dont care if Im friends with a different race here, or at home, or Im quarelling back and forth with my twin. Its a forum.
