    I have been mis-identified as a Jew before.

    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.

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

    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.)"


    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?

    Are you Greek or Turkish?
    Oh crap, man, that is a loaded question [​IMG] The politically correct/centre-left (back home, that is) thing to say is that I am Cypriot. Now, linguistically and by way of culture Greek. Oh god, where do I even start to explain the whole thing... Edit: Oh and depending on whether I have been on the sun recently or not, switches from white to non-white [​IMG] Ironically even though I live in Tucson currently I am the palest I have ever been in my life.

    Precisely what I was saying in my previous post. [​IMG]

    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

    Perhaps more likely to have Internet access too?

    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. [​IMG]

    I'm the quintessential WASP -- easily pigeonholed.

    I am the same.
