I was wondering, how many people have mistaken your ethnicity? Do you get annoyed by it? I don't get annoyed, and I've been ask several times throughout my life Lol. People often mistake my ethnicity for being Filipino, but I'm Chinese. Feel free to tell your stories and if this is a duplicate, Sorry. I couldn't find another thread similar to this.

EDIT: I've been asked if I was Filipino,Vietnamese, and Japanese. XD

^^I don't think you look like Indian. I think i can, to some extent, correctly guess what ethnicity you are if you're Asian. (sort of).
People tend to think I'm Vietnamese or Chinese or Japanese (don't know where the last one comes from) or even Hawaiian (this is the funniest guess ever).. they'll never get it right since I'm Asian-mixed.. I would never belong to a specific ethnic group

You can't mistake a black person.

This is just a joke, I myself am Black and a dark individual, I didn't mean to offend anyone, and please stop quoting me about how you or your black friend has been mistakened for another race because you or they happen to be a rather light individual who most likely is multi-racial.

You can't really mistake a black person. I am mostly African-American, at least 1/16th White, and at least 1/8th Native American Indian

I would put up a picture but every time I do it is enormous, even after I resized it, there is a bad picture of me upside down on my profile.
