No, but I'd correct them. It would be a great conversation starter.

LOLOL I've had this happen a fair amount of times.

I'm neither flattered nor offended. It's just someone asking you a question. No need to get worked up over it.

I'm pretty much the opposite of you; I'm Spanish but I look as English and unexotic as a pork pie. People never believe me when I tell them

No. This needs to be addressed.

Just report the post. Honestly, I used to that to a user that posted the most vile, race-baiting comments-and that person isn't here anymore. Besides, you're detracting away from the real issue here.

OK I feel super repetitive posting this, but what ethnicity (or ethnicities) do you identify with? Because I've noticed a lot of my mixed/biracial friends get this.

yes you should be.

Are you brown?
I should be what? And no I'm not brown haha. I'm naturally tanned, like Adriana Lima's skin tone.

My mums got Austrian Jewish, English and Scottish ancestry and my dad's got White, Asian and Black in him. I know, a lot going on haha. Anyways but I mostly Identify with being White. It's so strange because when I'm in Europe or the Americas people assume I'm Brazilian/ Spanish. But when I'm in Asia or Africa I'm seen as being White.

Haha why offended if Spanish though?

Not to appear vain or anything but I am a 9 in any sense

I do correct them and it indeed is a good conversation starter.
