Say what, you need to mark such a thing? That sounds so wrong.

What do you do if you're a mix?

Theres a multiracial thing then you fill in all that apply. My question is what do people who are of Middle Eastern descent mark, becaue theres no bubble for Middle Eastern/Arabic or whatever.

Re: What is your Ethnicity?

I don't know...? Do you really mark "white"? Or is it Caucasian? Because that would do for most of these people. White is pigmentation, Caucasian is to a greater extent based on the skull (not perfect though).

Re: What is your Ethnicity?

I'm 'white British' which is really boring.

My mum and her dad look/ looked quite Mediterranean because we have some Spanish Irish ancestry (I like to think that this accounts for my coarse, bushy hair). My great grandma was born in Canada, but her parents were English. We think we also have some Scandinavian ancestry.

I've always wondered the same things and I live in America. As for a mix child, the last time I took a test like that (ACT), it literally said "Other" as their option.

I, myself, am 'Caucasian'. I'm a descendant from pretty much all European countries and eastern Russia.

It's funny how ethnicity, race, and religion always get mixed up when jews talk about their heritage. Not that I mind, but I really don't know any other group of people who still categorise that way.

Re: What is your Ethnicity?

Well I was born in Australia so I would say I am Australian but since nobody can technically be Australian because it was all Aboriginal People until the white people came and took over I guess I am probably British way back when they came and took over somewhere down the line in my family lol dunno because as far back as I go they have all lived in Australia lol

If Jewish is both your religion and ethnicity, how are the two not mixed up?

And in a list, Jewish is kind of the odd one out. I don't even think it's listed in your typically American questionnaires.

What's your definition of "mixed up?" Do you mean confused and muddled? Or do you mean blended together? Or something else?

I am an ethnic Jew, but a religious Christian (but quite secular).
