this type of question gets less and less relevant in todays world, or at least more difficult to answer: I was born in the US. my mother was born in canada, her parents were born in a village that changed hands between russia, poland, and germany over the years. Â my father was born in the states, his mothers fathers family has been in the states since the mayflower, his mothers mother family came to the states in the past 100 years from england, previous of Â holland and spain. his fathers family came over around the potato famine, as indentured workers. I have lived in 5 countries, on 3 continents. my son was born in israel, my wife was born in colombia. her father was born in brazil, her mother born in columbia. her great grandparents were born in the ukraine, romania, and russia, her grandparents born in colombia and romania.
Damn Globe. Â And here I was impressed with my daughter's ethnic and religious lineage: Swiss, German, Basque, Spanish, Puerto Rican, African, Taino Indian, Southern Indiana Redneck, Catholic, Mennonite, Methodist
yeah, but with all that mix, my son looks like he could be german or Â anglo saxon - he didn't get a drop of any interesting color. we have a friend who child has coffee skin with sandy hair and blue eyes, just stunning.
Take out some of those Michael Jackson records lately, globetrotter?
? sorry, that went over my head
I was joking. You were remarking how striking a kid you know is, I was making a cheap joke about pedophilia, but of course know that you mean nothing of the sort. I think asian kids are the cutest, followed by black kids.
I see, no problem, it looks like its a little early for my sense of humor to be up and running today
yeah, I spend a good chunk of my weekends watching my kid play with other kids - when you don't have kids, you never really notice the kids, they are all one big noisy herd. when you sit around watching them, you see some kids are very good looking, and some are, well, really really less good looking.... what can you do. in my town, we have a lot of kids of mixed race parentage, for want of a more PC way of saying it. so in my son's class are a few african/caucasian kids, a lot of children of latin american roots, and a few asians and asian/caucasian kids. you see some of these kids and know that they will be very atractive adults.
