I am completely Chinese but who knows, because I don't know anything about the people before my grandparents XD
But besides the genes, I am Latina.

I think I look like my race. But people almost always guess middle eastern or eastern European (far-fetched imo). I have big deep set heavy lidded eyes with natural darkness beneath them so people assume I'm tired or I'm from one of those countries. Thing is I'm the only one in my family with such eyes. My mother teases me telling me I look like her grandmother, she supposedly was a Romanian gypsy

I think I fit the African-American stereotype to an extent. I'm dark-skinned, I've got a curvy body, my lips are fuller than most, and my hair gets poofy when wet. But my hair is long and doesn't take the form of a fro and that means a lot more than it should nowadays.

Several people thought I was Chinese. Or asked that. I just told them, "No. I'm fully Vietnamese."

I have no race.

I'm Persian and what I hate most is when people say "oh you don't look Persian". My background is Persian which as a group of people are quite mixed because of how old the civilization is and how many groups of people they have assimilated such as the Aryan and the Mongolian. Countries are elongated which means people within a country can have a variety of features.. I like to ask others what they think I look like but whatever they guess I won't ever look like a Persian from the "Prince of Persia" or a Persian from the movie "300"

Lol. I'm British, Polish, Irish Scottish, and German. But when I tell people that I'm German/Polish, they're all, "pfft no you ain't! you are white as a ghost!" And I know this is true but, c'mon!

Apart from not being naturally ginger, I look pretty Scots-Irish. Milky skin, freckles, blue-grey eyes

My mom is Cuban and my dad is Indian, but I somehow turned out with white skin, light-brown hair, and one blue and one hazel eye. I actually do look like both sides of the family, I look like my dad's side of the family but with coloring from my mom's side. People don't understand that not all Cubans have tan skin, black hair, and brown eyes, so when I explain my heritage to people they're always shocked, especially when I throw the Indian in there. I usually avoid telling people what I am because I don't want to deal with all the stupid reactions but I'm used to it by now.


Wicked! I never met anyone with heterochromia!!

Haha yeah it's pretty rare I guess. Mine's not that apparent because my eyes are dark, but I've seen people with really visible differences. It's crazy
