Me, I'm your typical black American. A little Seminole from my Floridian dad, and some Algonquin of some tribe or other from my Virginian mom.

Probably some English and Dutch way up in the family tree (my original last name is Baety - not too unfamiliar to you Indonesians, eh), having fun of some sort or another.

Well let's see...
My mom and dad are both Mexicans, so not much of a variety there. Maybe just that my grandma was from the USA...
However, if we do a trip to the past is most likely where we find something.
According to my last names (yeah, in Mexico we have TWO last names), the two of them are Spanish, however I might have something French as well. According to my mom, my grandpa told her that his grandparents or something like that were from France, but maybe through marriage, the French last name got lost across generations.
Now with the other spanish last name, maybe, just maybe it goes even further back into the past when Spain was invaded by the muslims.
I say this because for some reason when I travel, people had asked me if I'm from Irag, Morroco, or from any other Arab country...

So, to sum it up, I might have: French, Arab, Spanish, and US origins...

I'm not entirely sure about my background, but believe it or not, I'm part Hispanic ^o^ My grandfather's grandparents came from Mexico, and grandpa was the second generation born in the States. My mother, my grandfather's daughter, is part Mexican, German, Irish and Scottish, so that makes me 25% Mexican, if I remember correctly, and being about 12% German and 6% Irish and Scottish.

My dad on the other hand is 100% Portuguese, born in Hawaii. Not sure how many generations his family lived in Hawaii, however, but my dad has a bit of a unique accent, along with his parents :D They speak Pidgin English too Natsuki Kruger2

So with Dad being Portuguese, that makes me 50% Portuguese, so it's no wonder I look authentically Caucasian Razz But I'm more proud of being part nationalities my mother's side has ^_^

0-0 Hmm...i shall contribute! 

My mom is 100% Puerto Rican, my Abuelo and Abuela came to the USA in the 60's when they were middle-aged. Since their Puerto Rican that also makes them 1/3 Spaniard (White), 1/3 African (though we all look white), and 1/3 Taino from the native tribe that first lived on the island. On my dad's side, he's half Pueto Rican and half Ecuadorian. If you break Ecuador down that makes him 1/3 Incan, 1/3 Spaniard, and 1/3 Chinese from my Great Aunt

So yeah...i've been places 0-0

Chinese Filipino for the most part.
Both my mom and dad's family have Chinese bloodline. However, my family in particular don't look like Chinese because of my mother's Cuban roots. We don't have the small, narrow eyes that the common or pure Chinese people have, hence we're called "Semi-Singkit" or semi-Sino (semi-Chinese). :)

Filipinos are supposed to know a bit of Spanish. Do you have any knowledge of the language, Franny? :)

Not that much. The old folks would have knowledge of Spanish because back then, it's required that one knows how to speak it. Although I would believe that most of the words in Filipino (Tagalog) are derived from Spanish. Some of them not having the same meaning. E.g. the word "Siempre". We have this in Filipino. In Spanish, it means "forever", but in Filipino, it's not. It can either mean, "Yes, of course" or "Why, yes!" depending on how its used by the person speaking. 

Nowadays with modernity, Filipinos can be heard speaking the language with mixed colloquial words (salitang Kanto) or even gay lingo. But they're just being used in everyday conversations. There's even also a dialect down the south called "Chavacano". It's a Spanish-based creole dialect. It's more of Gratuitous Spanish for me. :)

I am Mexican, my parents are Mexican, I have understood that my mother's family is from Oaxaca, specifically they are descended from a people who are the Zapotecs, so I understand a bit of the dialect, for example to tell a girl: you're beautiful they say: "bi-(y)oro" or to name a place with a intersting legend is somethin like... to-to-jáa that means the foot on the stone. Because in that place there is a stone  and the leyend says:  has engraved the shape of a foot, for hundreds of years and no one has been able to give an explanation of how it happened. The dialect is interesting, but requires a very peculiar pronunciation.

the family of my father...
I must thank the topic gave me an good excuse to talk with him. He told me the hidden history of the family sweatdrop
 probably part of his family has some French touches (from when they landed in Veracuz) and I must say:
my grandmother was a beautiful woman, also my great aunt.
I know that my face are similar to it, (especially the eyes) but seriously I see the pictures of when she was young and I say, no, wait! I don't have this beauty...

lately I find it comical that people who know me question me about my roots: is rare but somethimes they say: Your family comes from japan? :shock: Of course no! (or I think so) I thought it was because sometimes I write in Japanese, or my haircut had asian influences, but they said me: I don't say for that reason, but as you have that face type...

and me: :shock:

so... I guess I'm mixed race... although now that I think about and reading different stories, perhaps not Japanese roots, perhaps... Filipino roots? my two last names are spanish too  mmm... Philosodori

Well...it could be.
Even my family name's Spanish, too. I mean most Filipino family names are, except some Chinese-Filipino minority. :)

Just updating about my ethnic background. Not that long ago, my cousin from my mother's side discovered that there were ancestors actually Jewish. We never knew that until that day we were informed (Thanksgiving :) ) Not only I'm part Hispanic, turns out I'm also part Jewish! Razz Only a small bit, the last of it, or in my grandmother's words: "Like a little drop of tea in a cup"  Natsuki Kruger2

Turns out my dad's grandma was Italian, from Sicily, though her family is actually from the North so their also technically part Austrian which is also Germanic (this explains why she and I look so European) so I guess I'm about the same as my favorite Oppai hunter, though she's from the South which is why she has darker skin (this is how you can usually tell Italians apart, as Northerners tend to have light skin and Southerners tanned skin). Damn I have a lot of places to visit when I get older 0--0
