hmm...wondering why you have french and no other european ethnicities. i guess it does seem like quite a few people from france are on the site, but it seems to me that there's quite a few swedes, too. oh, and out of the asian groups, i believe there are quite a few vietnamese. :D anyways, not criticizing, but perhaps it would have been better to have people just write what they are, esp since there's bound to be many "others."

also, just so you know, this is in the wrong forum. :)

edit: @Ilachan, dang it! you beat me! :D

My ethnicity is HUMAN :D

Im a swede and my relative has ben for god knows how long..
An oncle did a study of our family several hundrd years back and we were still swedes so... thats me :roll

The easyest way I guess is if everybody say their ethnicity and somebody makes a list later on.. That way will nobody be leftout..

I assume that all caucasian new worlders (North/South Americans, Aussies, Kiwis)would answer European, but even 3rd generation Asian Americans (the continent not the country) would answer based on the where their family is originally from. I am just wondering what "other" might be. Maybe African?

AsianblueX: you've got some cojones (balls) for starting this thread. ever since the male/female poll and others, i had always wanted to start this poll, but quickly thought about what would happen if i didn't list an ethnicity. or what if people were a combination of ethnicities (most people in hawaii are).

no harm done, though. it's good that you were curious (i'm sure a lot of us were). (i notice that you don't have caucasian (or american) on your poll?) perhaps, within your answers, you should put a short explanation of what you classify these people to be. although i am asian, i feel that the poll is slightly biased toward asians. you separate filipinos, jps, chinese, kors, etc., but not caucasian races.

try this, go to the us census bureau site, and see what classifications they use. maybe that will give you a good idea of what groups to list.

hope that helps.

:)

yup yup Takez0, i'm four ethnicities...we call it mixed plate or poi dog here, those from Hawai`i may get this more than those that aren't...:P don't really care for the latter description, but aaaah...no matter :wink:

tailchaser, other could be lots of things, considering the list is general...what would you say a Hawaiian, Filipino, Okinawan, English person like my self should choose? hmmmm, other :) :D

Maybe because 90% of the people that frequent here are asian or asian ethnicity, doing a more wide range classification wouldn't fit because I think you can have only 10 options.

I'm kinda of a special case, Brazilian, with Germanic/Italian heritage, who would have guessed huh? :w00t:

In Biology class in high school, my teacher long taught us about the mix cauldron. Everyone in the world is no longer 1 ethnicity.

I'm 25% (1/4) Chinese and 75% (3/4) Viet (to my knowledge), so I went with the majority.

Well, I may be caucasian, but I'm a mutt, hehehe. :lol I actually don't know all of my ancestors' ethnicities. All I know is that most of my ancestors from my mom's side have been in the U.S. since the early 1800's :crazy: I am mostly German on my mom's side, with a touch of English somewhere. Then came my great grandfather who was a Sicilian immigrant :blink My father's side, I'm not sure of much other than he has German, English, and Italian too. So...I chose European :roll

Well, if you are a new world caucasian that would be the most common thing to be. All of those countries are in Europe so of course you are European. I am from Pangea, and I am a direct descendant of the Piltdown Man. I also like to think of myself as a gaikokujin.

Whoa, this is the first poll I've seen, in the whole of my life, that has ever listed my specific ethnicity.

Not that it's a big deal, I don't even identify with being a Filipino. I'm 75%, and the rest of me is part Irish, part American Indian. But I don't know about any of those cultures, except that the Filipino side eats rice a whole lot (and even that wasn't something my mom kept up with,lol....but god help us when we go to grandma's :lol ).

Anyhow, I'm so terribly, cheesily American - there's no hope for me! :mrgreen:

Yeah, all I know of is European so I chose European. But if there is a mix in there other than European, I'm unaware of it and/or can't confirm. We could not trace on my mother's side any further back than the very early 1800's, so we may have been here since before then or maybe not, LOL. But my father's side is what I'm more unsure of than anything because I can't ask him and he has no living blood relatives anymore. Someone said years back that he might have had some Native American in his blood from way back somewhere. But I don't even know if it's true and even if it is, how far back and how much. So, I'm a caucasian mutt with very little idea of my own background :P

It's because there are only 8 options maximum in the poll. He couldn't list all the European and Southeast Asian countries out there... so what he did was list all the options he thought were most common in a community like d-addicts... and by the time he was finished with those, he had to generalize like crazy to cover everyone. ^___^

Filipino here too. I am kinda surprised there are so few Japanese and Koreans on the forum.

Well, if there are too many Chinese here why don't they volunteer to English sub some of those wonderful Chinese dramas ..... Oh, wrong board :unsure:

BTW, I'm American ... mostly of Danish descent with some French and English ... but I just think of myself as American.

Yes, I always wondered about that :P Maybe it's just that we figure basically only chinese people watch them - and since most of us know our own language we don't need the subbing? So really there's no point in subbing them. Of course I only understand cantonese and need the english subs for mandarin shows...lol..

Well I tried subbing an older HK series before but it didn't pan out. I was too lazy to finish even one episode. :roll

Wrong! At least I watch some them. I'd like to see some of the Huang Hai Bing series subtiled, starting with Ying Xiong. I'd also like to see My Date With a Vampire 1 & 2 subbed. I know, one's Mandarin and one is Cantonese, but it just goes to show you that a variety of Chinese dramas are appealing.

There are a lot more I'd like to see subbed, but the people who own the rights seems to think there is no market. Maybe they are right. If it wasn't for the fan subbers we would not have as many Korean dramas as we do.

It's like Taiseng not subbing Book & Sword, when the DVD release would have been a perfect opportunity. Instead they now jump on the Korean Drama bandwagon and release a Korean drama.

I'm thankful for all the D-Drama subbers, but would like to see some Chinese dramas too.
