I know, it's an odd topic. But Sometimes, I wish I was Italian. But I'm French so that's close enough for me.
#2
Well I mean I'm interested in elements of classical Japanese culture, albeit surface level, but if I *were* Japanese I doubt it would be of the same interest to me, unless I were raised Buddhist

If you do have an interest in a culture it's probably because you're from the outside looking in. In the same way that a lot of people romanticise the US and UK and we're much more indifferent to them.

Yeah I'd love to be a minority so I wouldn't have to be so damn oppressive all the time.
My old signature was too long. Have a daisy.

I put yes. Been watching too much The Wire lately and wish I could get away with some o' dat slang you feel me?

I wish I was 2D so I could live in the 2D realm with my 2D waifu.

But really, being Hispanic is fine. Not much going on for us except people assuming that means Mexican and or say it like its an insult.

O what a disgrace if such a despised and base race, which worships demons, should conquer a people which has the faith of omnipotent God and is made glorious with the name of Christ!

No, because by being lily white, most racists are indifferent to me.

#13
I wish I had a different skin tone if that's what you mean. Which is probably racist in some way but being pink/slightly tan is

I mean if I had to be white why couldn't I at least get pale white almost albinoish skin
#14
Being white would be cool because less minor unspoken prejudices/assumptions, especially when it comes to dating, eg have to expect that some people will instantly not be interested in romance just because I'm not white in a white majority country.


but that comes with being yet another dull white guy. At least I can currently crutch on my skin colour to stand out and not seem so dull initially.


I made my peace with my skin colour as a kid, happy in your own skin and all that, and learned that anyone who would treat me better if I was white is trash I shouldn't associate with.
O.K.

I will stay white and English thank you very much


And I will continue to repress every ethnic minority I see just by being white and english
I have nothing important to say
#17
^ That's because in the average woman you can't fit the whole thing in there. Not as much fun if you ask me.

Not to mention getting it caught in a lawnmower or something. You know how crazy gardening can get.

yeah but you're white enough that you can pretend to be all white and black enough that you can pretend to be black so you get both check your privileges

race is the more interesting question because everyone is a little bit of something with ethnicities and so what you end up really asking there is "do you sometimes wish you were born in a different culture?" which leads to people weebing out and such.

I like being english more than being american but americans seem to take not wanting to be american very personally. eg if forced I'd give up being american no problem (though I've heard you get treated pretty much like it's a few decades ago and you are defecting to USSR or something lol)

It looks cool being one of those polyglot europeans from like switzerland or germany or something who have ties to a whole bunch of countries and so can pretty much chill comfortably anywhere in europe. Knowing a few people like that is the only time I've been notably envious of someone's ethnicity.

No, but I'm white in the UK so checking my privilege
I wish a lot about me was different but I'm okay with my skin/face.
Being Italian/French or something could be cool for cultural reasons but if I cared enough I could move there

Americans can be insecure at times, over the top nationalism to make up for a lack of history or something

I've come to terms with being the scum of the earth, it's actually quite amusing how universally hated the English are. Working class cockney background and I'm from a pretty scummy part of the countryside
