Ok, I don't get this too often, but I had a guy yesterday ask me if I was from India or Pakistan and I told him I was not. I told him that I am from Louisiana. I also get people who think that I am from East Indian but the southern part. I am going to post a photo and I'd like to know what do I look to you. I am full blown black.

I don't find that surprising. I mean no offense and just a guess based on my observation but it could be a combination of your nose and complexion that would prompt some to wonder or ask. Maybe people that don't realize the many different looks blacks have. Maybe those who havnt been around vary many, or who's only exposure to blacks is the sterotypical media version.
If you had any of the mid eastern accents id probably guess that you were from somewhere in that region or your parents. And I just might ask.0
