  • It means "you don't look white , I think I have an idea what your ethnicity is but I'm not sure so to spare myself from the embarrassment of getting it wrong I am going to fish that answer out of you by calling you - ethnic"

  • It means they're not very socially adept. It's a meaningless thing to say anyway because everyone is of some ethnic group. It's like saying "you look human." Having said all that, they may mean that the person they say that to looks dark or mysterious in some way that is unusual for them. Or something.

  • You don't look anglo-saxon and thus aren't 100% white.

  • I don't know. I'm guessing that you look multi-racial? You should ask that person that told you that.

  • it sounds like they're saying you meet the stereotype off you race/ethnicity.

    it hard to say if it's was said in a good or bad why.

    hopefully it was ment in a good way even though it's maybe not the best way to say it.

  • He could be ignorant and he's probably white or working class and couldn't tell your ethnicity so he used that word. I stay away from people who say ethnic like that

  • Different than what they usually see so it depends on where you are from. If you Sweden blonde Whites would be fairly common but in Japan or China youd be exotic

  • Generally means they can't mentally pigeon-hole you into a specific race, but they know you aren't white-european or black.
