So you're mixed race then. A mixture of west African, Lebanese, Algerian and English Italian

Imo, as long as you're no more of 60% of any ethnicity, you're mixed

I'd have considered her white. People who are 70, 75, 80% majority race, they tend not to look mixed at all

Yess thank you!!!! I think I like to identify as mixed because I just don’t like identifying as white as it makes me feel weird as 50% of me connects to a background where we thought we were superior and still to this day are considered privileged! But when I say to ppl that I’m mixed they look at me as if I’m joking as I am the epitome of a “typical” white person ie blonde haired and blue eyed however I’m 50% white and 25% Middle Eastern/Mediterranean with a possibility of a bit of North African. So I would appreciate your opinions on wether you would consider me white European or Mixed?

whats the other 25% then? if you are 50% white, that alone says you are not white. :indiff: regardless of how you look as genetics are random. rihanna is a bit over 75% black, but has fair hair, eyes, and skin. still black. just genetically came out looking light. i know people with fully black black BLACK mums and a white dad and they come out with silky silky blond hair lol. i know people with white mums and black black Idris Elba dads, and come out looking like Naomie Harris...my sisters are blond, im brunet. doesn't mean im not related to em lol. looks doesnt make them more or less what they are. You are not white. You are mixed. If you wanna embrace your nonwhite roots but still call yourself white because of how you look, then ok but not because of being 50% white.
