Do you generally not look like your race?

In my sociology class we discussed how race is obviously identified by biological aspects, but is also based off of society's perspective on how we look. I am part Japanese, Chinese, and Hawaiian so I don't really know where my features came from. It makes me feel unique, but I'd rather be able to be in depth with one particular culture and feel like I belong.

Some people know I'm asian right off the bat without asking any questions, others believe that I'm from hispanic descent. I personally don't know what to think about how I look xD

So are you part of a race whose culture you'd like to be more apart of? Do people deny you because of it or do they embrace you? Share your experiences with people's reactions. If you are not mixed, tell us your opinion of people who are. Your views about it can be whatever, just don't be rude

Sorry if something like this was already done.

See! You are latina but you have very asian eyes. I wish I had smaller eyes all the time just so I could fit in with a sort of group and be accepted, but then I feel bad because its kinda childish of me.

Im half Indian (the country) and the other half is German/Polish. I know that I dont look Indian to most people and Im definitely not white, so I'll let you guys decide. People guess all sorts of things from Spanish, Italian, to Greek or Russian. It's very awkward when people walk up to me and start speaking Spanish since I remember very little of it. I never had problems fitting in, I can get along with the Indians in my family (though I do think they are a little strange) and the white side I feel more at ease with. I cant say that I get negative reactions from anyone really, most people just think it's interesting. I wouldn't mind being able to understand my Indian family a little better but Im finding the younger Indians that have lived here for a while always shock me with how Americanized they have become.

Totally, but in my country, I think it's pretty normal since all of us looks generally different from each other.
Too much mixing.

Yeah! People expect me to know Japanese/Chinese/Hawaiian and I'm like... I don't know that much or even any. Then it seems like they think they're getting ripped off or something haha.

I'm half Malay and half Chinese
I look more like a Chinese, but because I wear hijjab most of the time, I won't get mistaken for a Chinese, and most of my family members also look like Chinese people
in my country the people find this kind of thing interesting but I don't really understand why, I take it as normal, quite unique but not entirely fascinating.
peace~

My Great Grandmother was Japanese, I've inherited a little bit of her features I think. My eyes look Asian, but they are blue. People often ask "Aww don't you wish you were full Japanese sometimes?" Er...no whats wrong with the way I am now?

I love the fact that I'm British though, I wouldn't change it for anything. Longing to be something you're not is just pathetic. *waves British flag* w00p! Proud Brit thank you very much.

I'm Black, Cuban, Native American, English, and French. My skin is dark brown, but I have long hair and some Middle Eastern features (which is strange because I'm the only one in my family that looks that way and is tall.) I DO have trouble finding where I fit in I hate when people stare at me instead of saying 'hi' because they're trying to figure out what I am. It's probably because white beauty is publicized over here.

My mom and dad are both light skinned. I don't even know how I got this dark.

If you're Middle Eastern, dark is considered ugly in India (or at least not as pretty as light) and yes, I feel ugly as a black girl most times. My city is 90% white and that's all they ever really put on TV. I've been told I look a little Somalian.

Sometimes I wish I was either white or black with next to no hair, full lips, and a big butt. Sure, I'd be representing a stereotype, but I probably wouldn't be feeling as out-of-place.

I look similiar to her. We've got about the same skin tone and hair length:

I bet no one can tell I'm half hindi, though I always consider myself a world citizen;
