Now. Me? I'm mostly white. My dad's side is full of western-European roots, mostly from the British isles. My mom's mom is Czechoslovakian, and Russian, and my mom's dad is full-blooded Armenian. According to my mom, he was a staunch racist, but as I recently found out via research, there's probably some black blood in Armenian roots, which makes his racism EXTREMELY ironic.

I'm part Irish, German and Latvian. Judging by my looks most people think I'm just German.

I am a full-blooded Filipino (i think lol)..My father has a Spanish blood and native Tingian blood (of Abra) and my mom, well i really didnt asked about it yet. Well i can say that Filipinos are really a mixture of blood. And in this world right now, i dont think there live a person who are really a full blooded race or from a single race

My paternal and maternal grandparents all came from Poland - near Gdansk - which is North - off the Baltic Sea. My maternal grandfather was very much against my parents marriage. He said, "Well at LEAST he is Polish... but he could be a Polish boy from Wisconsin -- that would be better." (My father was born in Minnesota. Ahhh, I wonder what my grandfather would say about me if he were still alive? I married someone from Bangladesh.

LOL That is great that he may have blood from a race that he seems to dislike. Maybe one day he will come to terms that people are people and it does not matter the color of skin. I am a mutt...as most people are now days. My father was German and Native American. While my mother is Polish and Native American. So, I actually am a German-Polish-Native American....LOL Talk about a mix there! I guess with my mixture, some people wonder what I am. I get darker in the sun if I actually go in the sun. ha ha So, my partner's family seemed to think that I was African American. Which, I don't have a problem with that, it is a nice compliment to my skin tone...but they are racist too. And given that I am actually Native American and their father was Native American...kinda makes it stupid that my partner's sisters pick on me about my skin tone. So, I understand and have witnessed the extremely ironic too!

sorry to hear about your racist dad. anyway, my grandmother is half spanish. grandpa is purely filipino. so, my mom i guess has traces of spanish blood. it shows anyway... her skin color is not the usual filipino color we always have. my dad is purely filipino. so, i say, i am mostly filipino in blood and that i have too small traces of spanish heritage.

From my mom's side: Scots, Irish, English, Native American (Choctaw tribe) Mom always wished she would find some black roots, just to spite her dad. From my dad's side, German, "Black Dutch" whatever that is. English, Swedish, French, and Jewish(hidden in among the German.) I am pretty thoroughly melting pot. My mom always talked about the fact she did not marry her first love because he was Mexican, and her family would not have accepted him.
