what do people think?

When yo go outside, whether your stationed overseas, go abroad, or just leave your state do people mistake you for anything else?

when I was visiting with my husbands family I got mistaken for a lot of things from Turkish to Italian. (I had my natural hair color at the time, brown/black)

to complicate things further I could not easily just say 'well my mom is Indian' because they would have been like 'No we're Indian. you're western.'

Usually people just think I am white. I've had a few people tell me that they knew I was Indian though.

I have no idea where they got Turkish from. I did accept the pomegranates and dates they offered but that was mostly to be polite. Maybe from movies they expect people from the US to be tall and blonde?

People DON'T think! The rely upon gossip, superstition, rumors...

Here in South Calif...almost everybody is "mixed". They don't like the term "halfbreed" here, but they still want to label people. They will ask "what are you mixed with?"

Well not to me, I'm fullblood Irish. But when I'm out with my offspring, and their offspring, people's eyeballs are all over us, playing "connect-the-dots".

Besides Ireland, the roots of Africa, tribal America, and tribal Mexico run through my younger generations.

Not strange for South Calif, but most people out here are "lost" from the tradtional cultures. They can recite their own many "racial/ethnic" roots, but don't know any history or traditions.

That's why so many Cali kids are tatted-out, and pierced, and join into gangs, or social sets of bikers, surfers, etc.

I think we had a thread about this before. I still say you look like your mother's Scottish side.

I think you said your dad was adopted and European looking...well maybe he wasn't European. Here in the melting pot, you get all kinds of combinations...but from your little photo, I'm voting for Scottish from your mom's side.

Anyway, it doesn't really matter. You are who you are! What you do with it is what matters! Being an awesome wife and an awesome mother is a great place to start. I hope you will take up beading! It's a lot of fun. I could just see you wearing your own Choctaw belt that you crafted yourself!

I don't either. You don't look Turkish at all. Not even a little. Turkish people aren't ignorant about Americans and Europeans, I have European friends that used to go to Istanbul alot.

It's Americans that are ignorant about the Middle Eastern countries. Most middle eastern people aren't white like you, they are darker, even very dark. There are native people in these countries that have been there a long long time.

It is likely the people were just being nice. Americans have a pretty bad rep in a lot of countries, by telling themselves you looked like them, perhaps it was a way of making an American seem more palatable, kind of like, "see they aren't that different/bad..." This is all conjecture as you didn't find out what they were thinking, you just took the gift out of politeness. But to assume they are ignorant...I think that is a leap.

No,it was a small town in India. My husband comes from a rural state, I think someone made an offhand comment and kind of like the grapevine effect I became middle eastern. The same grapeine effect caused me to "go in to labor" a couple times before I actually had my daughter.

*my sister-in-law has similar things happen to her there also apparently (I asked)*

Anyway, it doesn't really matter. You are who you are! What you do with it is what matters! Being an awesome wife and an awesome mother is a great place to start. I hope you will take up beading! It's a lot of fun. I could just see you wearing your own Choctaw belt that you crafted yourself!
lol, when little one gets over her teething I will make a belt (or hopefully something that at least resembles a belt)

I've gotta change that avatar though. I look angry in that picture.
