    I expect a disproportionate amount of Asians and the rest mostly white.

    Oops. I misvoted. Take (the) one out of the "black" row and put it in the "white" row.

    I'm only "asian" in the strictest sense. Basically I'm a cracker disguised as an asian who may actually think that he's black.

    I'm the quintessential WASP -- easily pigeonholed.

    What's the racial makeup of the US?
    According to the CIA World Factbook:

    "white 81.7%, black 12.9%, Asian 4.2%, Amerindian and Alaska native 1%, native Hawaiian and other Pacific islander 0.2% (2003 est.)
    note: a separate listing for Hispanic is not included because the US Census Bureau considers Hispanic to mean a person of Latin American descent (including persons of Cuban, Mexican, or Puerto Rican origin) living in the US who may be of any race or ethnic group (white, black, Asian, etc.)"

    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.
