Title: Clash of the Races!
Post by: TyranBrûlée on May 24, 2012, 01:31:31 AM
So what race are you? Please be more specific than "Human" o_o
Are you a hybrid? Have you got pride in your race? Are you a minority where you're from?
Do NOT confuse this with nationality, as that is where you're from, whereas race is what you're born as, what race flows through your blood, who your ancestors were.


As for myself, I'm Asian. Vietnamese to be more precise... and as far as I know, I'm a purebred.

I'm a mammal, just like you. However, I don't want to be a part of the human race. Humanity is what ruins this world, I'd rather be a BUNNY then.

Okay, Bunny. Although I agree with you when you say humanity is what ruins the world(though that can be debatable as well), refusal to accept your humanity, your sin, is a sin itself. And I don't mean it in a religious sense(because I am faaar from religious, lol), I mean to say that in relation to life's sins.

But it's your call, MisterBunBun.

Offcourse it's a sin for I am also destroying this world by having a daily habit like other humans. Yet, I try to be as less destructive as I can be.

Anyways, to keep it on topic.
I'm quarter british luv.

THAT'S A NATIONALITY.
British lands are made up of a mix of races, but it's originally Caucasian-based.

Tad bit of Spanish blood. Maybe a dash of Korean or Chinese. Never asked my grandparents whether which one they were. Most probably Chinese, though.

I've traced my ancestors back to the 1700's and they still lived in the same house some still live in now. I'm as English as it's possible to be, going by records. A quarter of my family are from Manchester, a quarter from Newcastle, and half are from Hull.

I'm quite sure there's some German and French in my blood too, due to Belgian history.

Of course not, the records could either be wrong through misunderstanding or manipulation. But thats what I have been informed on.

Humanity is what ruins this world.
Actually the lack of humanity is ruining the world.

I'm a pure blood. 100% Dutchman too.
My grandfather on my mother's side and my dad both did some research on their ancestors and they got as far as the 17th and the 18th century.

Your version of humanity and his are two different, yet both valid things.

Anywho, are ethnicity and race interchangeable? I've been on a few sites and it's provoked a bit of controversy.
Title: Re: Clash of the Races!
Post by: Toffee on May 25, 2012, 06:52:27 AM
As far as my understanding goes, Race is something dictated by who your parents are, and is determined pretty much the moment your mom and dad did the horizontal rumba. I'm not 100% sure on this, but I think that Ethnicity is determined by the culture you are immersed in, and the culture you recognize yourself to belong to.
Title: Re: Clash of the Races!
Post by: Kiss x Miz on May 25, 2012, 12:21:02 PM
Ethnicity is a nicer word for skin colour. Race = Human race (meaning everybody). Racism is making yourself believe some people are not as human as you are.

Really?
Quote from: wiki
Kerala is a top tourist destination (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tourist_destination) in India. National Geographic's Traveller magazine names Kerala as one of the "ten paradises of the world" and "50 must see destinations of a lifetime". Travel and Leisure names Kerala as "One of the 100 great trips for the 21st century". The Kerala Government (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kerala_Government) Tourism Department, a government department in charge of promoting tourism has adopted the slogan God's Own Country (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God%27s_Own_Country) for its campaigns.
Sounds promising to me.

Just stay away from the urban areas and you should be fine. Kerala's beauty is in its untamed wilderness like the waterfalls and lakes.
If you do come here, don't forget to try out our local cuisine.

My favourite food is Indian, I eat it maybe 4 times a week. I bet the real stuff made there is even better too.

That gave me an idea, since the thread is called clash of the races, lets also clash food.
English food is shit. I mean, who goes out to an English restaurant? You get fish and chips if you visit the seaside and have a sunday lunch on a sunday, but apart from that its shit. Bubble and squeak (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bubble_and_squeak) is disgusting, cornish pasties will never win any food awards, Pie and chips will never get furthur than the pub menu, the only other English food that interests me is a full English breakfast but it's so unhealthy I have it maybe 4 or 5 times a year. Everybody here loves foreign food, Indian, Turkish, Italian, Chinese, Thai etc. Even when we have a good old English sandwich we fill it full of Chicken Tikka or something.
My favourite restaurant is a Malayan place, I love Beef Rendang. People say French cuisine is great but I think Asian food is, by a long long way, the best.

Well, not really. India's very diverse considering the people who live here. We got 'asian' looking people to the east, middle eastern looking people to the north, people who don't look like anybody else in the south and and people in the west and Punjab are the stereotypical guys you see in cartoons; turban wearing folk.
That is just the general outline, its actually much diverse than that.
