I think, personally you should put 'Canadian'. Just Canadian. Because, I'm part Welsh, Scottish, Irish and British, and a small part Native Canadian. We've lived in Canada for about 6 generations now, and I don't consider myself to be any of those things, I'm just... Canadian.

Anyways, I'm using the British-Canadian one now but... I'd rather have a just plain Canadian one. Please consider it?

Mothers side - Mix of like 5 different ethnicities.
Dads Side - Lebanese

So i guess that makes me Mixed/Lebanese.

And I agree with some others that we should just be able to type what we want. If that isn't something you want to change then at least do this: Ability to say Mixed/<another ethnicity>

I am guessing the reason why we cannot type what we want is so people don't type stuff like troll, goblin, fairy, robot, etc (i can easily see people who live in lala land wanting to do this).

I'd like to be able to refer to my ethnicity as simply Canadian as well. Both sides of my family have lived in this country for a long time.

Canadian is not an ethnicity, British Canadian is though. Canadian or American is a nationality.

Yeah, i techinically understand that, however since I don't feel associated with any of those groups, I think that the British-Canadian should just have the British part taken off. At least, that's how I feel on the subject but actually, I think it would be better to not have a drop down list and then just let us type our ethnicity into the form box. It would make it easier, right?

Maybe I'm too old-school, but whatever happened to just plain ol' "white/black/asian/latin/middle eastern/native american/pacific islander" etc... with a "mixed/other" category?

Fretting over the technical details of one's ethnicity is silly.

I think you should have
-Black and White / B&W
-Oreo
-Cookies and Cream
-Mutt
Because those are what I use to describe my ethnicity.
I also agree with livia, because I am a descendant of Martian Manhunter.
