Do people often mistake you for another race?

I've been mistaken for being Hispanic but I'm Caucasian. I've also been told I look like I'm from Portugal but I'm from NY. Have you been ever mistaken for a different race or state?

  • Some people have thought I'm Latino cause I'm from Spain, but not because of how I look.
    But I'm white, and by my looks, most people know I'm white, and they tell me I don't look Latino, but European.
    So by appearance they're not mistaken, but when I say where I'm from, the ignorant say I'm Latino (which is wrong, Spaniards aren't Latinos, we're caucasian).

  • I most commonly get mistaken for being biracial because of, (my light skin complexion and, "good hair") Some mistake me for being Latino.
