To alleviate any confusion, I'd figure that if you would be "perceived as" (I know that's a sweeping generalization..) one race or another, then pick that option just for the sake of brevity.

Hell, with a last name like Wang, he should have been a mohel.

From 2000 Census:

White: 69.1%
Black: 12.1%
Hispanic:12.6%
Asian: 3.6%
Native Indian, Eskimo, Pacific Islander & Other: 1.0%
Multi-racial: 1.6%

So Black & Hispanic are under-represented while Asian is way over-represented on SF. Is that a cultural thing that Asians are more into clothes than other ethnic groups?

Precisely what I was saying in my previous post.

What would you put on a form you were filling out for a job or medical?

That's the answer you should put down now. :P

Blacks are obviously very fashion minded, but not usually "classically" oriented or even of the SF "streetwear" mindset which is more of a white urban style.

Asians.....IME they tend to be very clothes minded, but more along the lines of popular and obvious high end brands (Armani, D&G, Versace, LV etc)

I remember when it was trendy for Asian girls to wear 2 pairs of $$$ designer sunglasses at once, one over the eyes, the other propped up on the head...that way you could show off the Chanel logo and Dior logo at once.
