I've had times where I've wished to be a different race, like there was a brief time when I wanted to be Japanese (I got over that though). However, what bothers me is that I don't really look like what I am. My family comes from Cuba, India, Spain, Canary Islands, Morocco, the middle east (Muslims and Jews), Italy, and China,....and I just happened to turn out white-looking....so people question me or assume I'm lying when I tell them about my heritage.

The thing is.. I went through a stage wishing that i was something else and stuff.. But i learned to love myself and my culture so i embrace my culture.. The thing is, we're all human beings.. So race doesn't matter to me anymore.. I'm part of this world so i learn to accept who i am and accept who everyone else is.

When i went through that stage though, i wished i was something different.. When i tell people i am Sudanese by blood.. From the Sudan, they look at me as if i am.. I don't know what.. A terrorist! I also get told that i look Somalian and stuff and people jump into conclusions about my race and ethnicity.. That's why i wished i was anything BUT Sudanese.. My nationality is Dutch and many people seem to focus on that a lot more than my Sudanese blood. But i have learned to accept that so i am fine with who i am. Because complaining and wishing isn't going to get you anywhere.. It's irreversible.

I`m not sure where I read this but Filipinos were called traitors in the WW2
`cause we sided with the Japanese or so the Americans say .
Philippines has been invaded by a couple of countries too .
Despite that , I like my race and culture .
If everyone was given the chance to pick their own race , Japan would be overpopulated .
I like being Filipino and because of that I`m Asian as well .
If I`m already Asian , why would I want to be another Asian race ?


where'd ya get that? i thot filipinos are like pro-US during the war... i dunno...<.<

I'm white (celt) & native and I'm happy with who I am, but I wish my father's side was more "traditional". I have a very "white" family. xD

Though I do wish I was taller and sometimes I wish I were blonde, because then I could dye my hair funky colors without bleaching the hell out of it, haha.

Hmmm... Being blond isn't that much of a fun... At least I don't like it, that's why I color my hair red/dark brown

Well look at it this way, at least you have light body hair! And your roots don't look as bad growing out, whereas if I bleach my hair, my dark roots can be seen 3 days later. D:
