1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    No, I am. I'm light-skinned and have some features that look Jewish, but I'm definately black.

    After visiting your website, here's a conclusion for you to confirm: the avatar isn't you.

    After another look, maybe it is. The hairstyle could make that big a difference.

    With exposure and a good eye, it can be done. There is a somewhat accurate website for gauging ethnicity from facial features, Faceanalyzer. Skin color alone is not reliable, especially in photographs.

    I agree. AT least to a certain extent.

    My avatar is rapper Paul Wall, who is Jewish. I don't look a whole lot like him, but we have a similar skin tone.

    This Paul Wall, do you think he is a communist? He bills himself as The People's Champ.

    Indeed, it is about common usage. And the common usage of the term "raza" in Spanish is not the same as that of the term "race" in English.

    Were you pondering your reply for two years? [​IMG]

    Indians and Middle Easterns are quite dissimilar =( Our native languages don't even have similar roots!

    Anyways, I'm a mix of filipino and palestinian...which means im a mix of spanish, chinese, native islander, french, etc and palestinian (palestinian part is supposedly true-blood)

    Half Lebanese + Half White = All White.

    So I guess people from India aren't considered Asian? Also, what if you're 1/2 and 1/2?
