    • J.J. says:

      what an idiot to say so you’re basically white after he asked his ethnicity, ethnicity is your ancestral origin, white is a race. Then he said he looks ethnic as if to say white people of euro descent aren’t ethnic, deadest people are so clueless when it comes to race and ethnicity
