I'm an Indian Fijian. I always get confused for being half-African American or for being Mexican. There are many things about my ehtnicity that I love, like the culture, but I always get slapped with stereotypes that just piss me off. For example, since I'm Indian, people are always expecting me to be ridiculously frugal or to rip other people off, like Indians are some sort of dishonest race. I hate that so much. Or since I'm Fijian people assume I'm snotty about my roots and that I think I'm better than everyone because it's "exotic" to be an islander. What?? What does that even mean?? I have a very well-rounded circle of friends that helps keep me sane though, haha.

as far as nationality, i've been called dominican & i incessantly get haitian.


You'll definitely get that for dominicans, as we generally have a wide arrange of different toned folk in our culture. My cousins range from ...well Caucasian looking to donning more "black" attributes.


yup, you're right; so much of the caribbean & central america is a giant melting pot.

pretty sweet!

My family is from Mauritius. Anyone who's been there will tell you how mixed it is. Telling people apart by race is no easy feat. My siblings and I have very mixed backgrounds consisting of Indian, German, Chinese and African. People confuse me for a Brazilian or even Mediterranean at times. I didn't look too out of place in Tunisia either.
