    Haha all the time, im from the Balkans, an Bosnian/Serbian/Hungarian mix and I even have some German blood, but I live in Sweden. However my name is German both first and last and both are also common Swedish names. So I got a Swedish name but my skin is dark and my hair is black so I don't look like a Swede. Its a good thing cuz when I apply for a job im always welcome for a job interview the same doesn't go for my immigrant friends with name arabic/bosnian names or foreign names in general, but when I get to the interview they see that I'm not a Swede so they say shit like they're going to appoint someone else for the position hahaha.

    And also when people see me they always think im an Arab or maybe from south america, cuz i'm a lil darker. Even other people from ex yugoslavia think im Iraq or smth.

    heh..I tend to stump people. It's pretty hard for people to guess I'm half-jap. (I don't look Asian at all) Most of the time I get.. Hispanic.. or.. something.. or I tell them the country I was born in and they think I'm Peruvian. Some say I could pass for Native American. Once when I was like 5 I was really tan or something and someone said they didn't like me 'cause I was black.. which was like.. dumbfounding. XD

    I'm a half libyan/egyptian, so my accents are a little mixed, since i'm not the communications type guy. In libya people are "are you a(n) Lebanese/emeratee/tunisian/etc. etc.

    Most people wouldn't be able to guess my nationality, because I simply got the wrong accents and live elsewhere. But I never got mistaken in terms of race.
    @Sensimilija: I also got a bit swedish blood but fairly dark skin and more or less black hair ; )

    Wow...I kinda gained a little bit of respect for you(very little) but with this post that's all gone. I won't even bother responding to it, but I'll give you a small hint. About 20% of the black slaves that came to America were initially Muslim.

    Please refrain from calling me your brother or talking to me again. Have a nice day.

    edit: I was a little off. 30% is the correct amount.

    That's the most polite rendition of Major Payne I've ever read.
