    I have to write a research paper for English. My thesis is that Americans are more easily able to identify a stranger's ethnic culture just by looking at the person. I need to prove it or disprove it though, so here are five pictures of people. I did this same thing with some americans and I am going to compare the data. PLEASE DON' T JUST BULL**** ME!!! thanks.

    the third pic is two people of the same ethnicity.
    the second one is tricky. She is 50% one ethnicity and 50% another. The people i will post in the pic below are sisters and are also 50/50.

    It helps us to catch spam and to vet what gets posted here. The Media and Research Opportunities forum could otherwise be quite easily misused.

    We don't want duplicate threads on the forum, and this forum (Media and Research Ops) is where the thread belongs. International Affairs is a place for more 'serious'/in-depth debate and discussion.

    1) Indian / Sri-Lankan
    2) Swedish / Norway / Denmark
    3) Not sure American?
    4) Spanish and ?

    As you can see I'm not very good Out of interest why do you think Americans are able to spot diff races better? Because they're less xenophobic? More central geographically so have a more diverse culture? Sounds interesting
