I once rang my friend' s phone, someone answered, and I said "I demand to speak to my wife" in the most ludicrous accent I could muster. Little did I realise it was her mother who answered. I toned it down a little after that.

Dunno about you, but did you find you began to learn certain words of their langague? I know most of the insults in urdu, and when people don't know me use them thinking I don't understand, it's always fun to surprise them.
Because of my poor hearing the only one I picked up was somnthing like "goodah, goody or somthing" I am not sure what it meant but if you dared to say it you would get a kick were it hurts.

yes i know, none of the "i wont dare refer to skin, colour, race etc".

its nice to know you can talk freely without offending.
Well unfortunatly from what i have seen, the equality that i know sometimes turns a full circle and people seem to pull out the race card as an excuse in too many circumstances

i hope so.
my best m8 comes from a pakistani background.
i myself come from a pakistani/liberian/american background. i have mainly pakistani and white m8s.
throughout my school life (p.school, s.school, 6th form) the white and pakistanis have never really mixed that well..there has always been 2 groups, which isnt promising.

just wondering. do you have many if any closer friends of a different ethnic background to yourself?

personally my closer friends (ones i see out of sixth form) are all white.
Ok, from heritage I am: Half Christian , Half Jewish, Born in Sweden by swedish parents. I have two hungarian granparents which lived on the border to romania, I have two swedish grandparents which lived on the border to finland. My girfriend is from northern Norway and I go to IB meaning almost all the people I hang out with ahve different ethnical backgrounds. We have people from all across the globe in our class. Northern america , Scandinavia, New Zealand, Asia, the Phillipines, south Africa etc etc.

The funny thing is that we are neither completely different nor completely similar. You can notice the cultural differences, but still people get along quite well. Perhaps the funniset part is the IB-English which has been created at our school. It is a mix between English, Norwegian, German and in my case Swedish.

i find that if there are groups of other races they all tend to congragrate together. its natural i suppose, you assume they will understand you better

anyone race specific (if unconsiously) when it comes to attractivness?

Since I go to an IB school I have many friends from all over the world, but my closest friends are white. My best friend is half American, half Norwegian and my boyfriend is Swedish.

When I lived in the US I had mostly Hispanic friends (lived in Florida).

ive only ever been out with pakistanis/indians ..i think it has something to do with the way i was brought up. my mum who has a pakistani background was more influential than my dad who comes from america. he just cant be arsed with anything.

Seriously?
It goes by the mother, and his father isn't very religious anyways I think. Jonatan's skin is mysteriously dark though.
