I'm Asian American. Does this surprise you?
It surprises me, that you think of yourself as Asian.
Why is that?
I see it as a form of self-segregation, for lack of a better term. You had to be born in America. Or, you became a citizen of the U.S.A. Diversity is great, but it does lead to discrimination. I just think the sooner we stop the emphasis on our differences, the more we have a chance at equality. A goal long overdue.
Thanks for sharing.
Should I be surprised? And if so, why? You could be pink with purple polka-dots and from Mars ... but I don't know why someone's race should surprise me.
Not necessarily. see my discussion with Think below as for my curiosity regarding this poll...
Maybe I'm not surprised because, while most of the family is Caucasian, we also have American Indian, Puerto Rican, Chinese, and Indian members. I don't assume or expect any particular ethnicity.
Never thought to consider what ethnicity anyone on SOH is.
Don't know why anyone wb surprised. You got to come from somewhere.
Humans are all the same to me.
I knew there are a few Asian Americans but didn't know who. Cool! What type? I'm Half Chinese
Chinese and Japanese mixed!
Awesome! Best of both!
This is one of the weirdest polls I've ever encountered.
Haha didn't think it would be weird!
Lol Tausif, you forget you follow me 😂😂
Well your (Kenna) polls are quite bizarre, but only at a mediocre level. On the contrary, this poll requests such an unusual/inexplicable response that the provided options do not simply cover. I'm glad that you have shared your race, but I do not find it to be such astonishing news since that race is quite common here in the American territory. What would surprise me is if someone claimed he or she were part Alien.
Why should it matter?
I dunno. I just thought maybe most people thought I was white, since most whites share my political views (according to the SOH stats anyways).
Ok ... and that's important?
Maybe not important but interesting at least to me
No idea why, but that's actually what I thought you were.
I guess you're psychic 😀
No. Half Vulcan would maybe raise an eyebrow 😎
Nothing surprises me. I'm white
