No they are not always right especially when you be telling people what you are and they keep on assuming that you are something else that becomes annoying. There are black and white mix people that are usually assumed that they are hispanic. People think you are what you look.
Exactly why do people even bring up about what you are anyway?
I'm sure most are just curious or genuinely interested and don't really mean anything by it maybe just showing an interest in your life or culture
It is still irrelevant just my opinion.
Thank you for sharing, I think people who are from non white ethnicities, like myself, are not aware of these types of stereo types against whites of different backgrounds, especially not living in Europe or the Middle East.
I try to understand how they got that assumption people always think that I am middle eastern but I dont understand how.
This is so true and I have experienced this as well.
@Asker maybe your appearance just seems like it. Tell them you're not Arab, let them know your real ethnicity, and move on.

I agree but people are still going to ask. I wish they wouldn't ask if they think that you are something they dont need to ask unless they were trying to classified you into a group.
I understand but guessing someone's ethnicity I'd more specific than guessing their race, it's like what country or tribe you are from. You did not mean anything by it.
@likelyOK Had I done it once, maybe I could say it was a mistake. But I did it several times and it took her explaining in detail for me to move to acceptance. It was all kinds of awkward. I made her feel like I was an arbiter of who could be "Black" or what experiences were legitimately African-American. Its weird. I had to face the fact that I could accept that African-Americans could have different ideas, varied interests, and have diverse political view. But when push came to shove, I was still claiming that an African-American could look too "White". Which is the silliest standard of all.But in the end, she helped me to learn. A sandy-haired, blue-eyed sista with the lightest skin and the cutest freckles.
It is biracial black + white doesn't equal black. They came up with terms for Hispanic people. Why can't they do it for black and white mix people. Hispanic isn't a real race it is a combination of races. That is why people have misconceptions on what is really black/african. I mean white people dont allow biracial people to say that they are white. Nobody ever thinks about it because they believe in the rules made by white people. It has never change.
They need to come up for another time just to specify mix race people. They did it for Hispanic people. Hispanic isn't a real thing it is made up with a bunch of other races. You just see it has someone who claims as one race than a multiracial person. It gets annoying when people think that a biracial person is just black all the time. Nobody ever thinks of anyone being mix race. If white people dont like anyone who isn't pure them. Give another term because biracial isn't the same as biracial.
Do you know that most people have mix ancestry right?
If you have european and African ancestry. It is annoying when people keeps thinking that you are just black or hispanic all the time. It is like black and white can't be mix in people's eyes. That is how it is either black or white not gray.
I have less than 1% African ancestry. I most just look Scottish and Danish/Dutch. I tan so darkly that people assume I'm part Latino or Arab. Everyone's a mutt. It honestly wouldn't surprise me if my 23 And Me test got it wrong.
People always making false assumptions. I ask them why does it matter because if I give them an answer they dont believe it.
No good of arguing about it. I mean people see what they see. I just dont understand how though.
I doubt they mean it in a bad way..
Are you used to people's stupidity? I think too many people are so concern about skin color and appearance than what a person is
Im actually more than used to it im ok wih it. as long as they mean no harm i dont disturb their way of thinking lol.
Too much colorism in the world but it is only white or black not shades of gray.
Because you know that it is obvious and some people it is questionable. Just ask dont assume.
Would you believe it though because when you correct them they believe that you are lying. You people who disagree dont see the other side.
Yeah I would probably. You say the truth on your part and don't worry about if people think you're lying or not. That's the same with anything in life really. Just because someone will think you're lying doesn't mean don't tell the truth
That's why I think it is wrong. I am glad that you understand where I was coming from now
I think people be lying if they thought you were something you didn't like but ok
That makes no sense
Easy for you to say if you give them an answer and they dont want to believe it. can't say that it is stupid if you dont see it another point of view.
So they don't want to believe it, why would you fucking care? Would you care this much if people didn't want to believe 1+1=2? No. So quit borrowing unnecessary trouble.
Yeah, ofc. You're getting your panties in a twist because people can't guess something as stupid and irrelevant as your ethnicity, but I'm the bitch, right? You're pathetic.
Nobody told you to answer my question if you think the question is dumb dont take your bitch ass on my question and answer if you dont see a problem.
Nobody told you to post bitchy whiney questions if you can't deal with the answers, cunt 😆
It is my account and I can do whatever the fuck I want to do. Just because your life sucks doesn't mean to act like a bitch towards me.
And it is my account and I can do whatever the fuck I want to do :) And I do so without hiding behind an anonymous post like a little bitch. My life sucks? I'm not the one throwing a fit because people mistake my ethnicity 😆 Grow up, cunt.
You started it you didn't have to be so rude when you answered it with all that cussing.
Oh no, I said the F word! Quick, call your mommy! Cunt.
And start responding it is not like everything that you say is something I want to see you type. Kiss my fucking ass.
I wouldn't kiss your ass if you paid me, you insignificant little whore.
I mean stop responding
Or else what, bitch?
I can complain about stuff if I want to other people in the world complain about dumb shit so can I. Why dont you grow up you are 34 years old and gotta be a rude bitch to prove your case to people. How mature is that?
You can complain, and I can answer how I see fit when you do so publicly. Don't like it? Tough.
It would be different if you ask an question and I was up on your question blowing up your newsfeed over some nonsense. I get the last word because this is not your question. It would be different if you asked the question then yeah you can be a bitch if I said something out the way.
Might be this way in your kindergarten, not in the real world. You're nothing, a piece of shit, a cunt attached to a pile of filth. That's all you'll ever be.
Blah blah blah take the shit out of your mouth.
Flap your antennae for me, insect.
I'm just going to block you because you dont know how to shut the fuck up. I am not even mad about it anymore. Just leave me alone you stubborn brat.
People are assholes for assuming that they are right when you told them they are not. People dont always believe you when. You tell them what you are.
It is either black or white. There is no shade of gray when it comes to people.
Lots of shades... look at Luna grothe. She has black, caucasian and Asian in her.
I'm saying people dont see all three they only see one of them. I'm black white and Hispanic but people only see just black or Hispanic depends on the person.
Yeah that's totally wrong.
