    I have countlessly been mistaken for other nationalities (most commonly Turkish or Greek) so I was wondering, has anyone else has had their nationality mistaken?

    Your always in my heart, Taemin oppa!

    Yeah I have a few time. Because of the area I work and I'm dark skinned people always think I'm Haitian and start speaking French or Creole to me. But really I'm Jamaican.

    I'm caucasian, and I'm not mistaken for that. But, I am Australian, and everywhere I've gone in the world I have been mistaken for an American. >.< I can't stand it.
    It can't be helped though because you can't really distinguish between a white person from America, Australia, UK, Canada etc without hearing them talk.

    Usually I get mistaken for an Australian but only by foreigners. When I say I am from New Zealand some people haven't even heard of it

    Yes. I am Native American, but there are times that I have been mistaken for someone of Hispanic origin. Mainly because of my tanned complexion plus my dark hair and eyes. Also, to most foreigners when I state what ethnicity I am, they will assume that I am just saying I am native to America (which in a sense, I am) or when I use the American term "Indian", they will automatically believe I have some sort of blood relation to someone from India.

    At first, I didn't think it was that complicated, but after I met my foreign exchange partner, I had to re-think the way I described my origins. America is a mixture of many cultures, so I can see how it can be difficult.

    Ahh, a couple of kids wondered what nationality I actually were once. Since I got brown/green eyes and dyed brown hair they thought I was a foreigner for some reason. (basically because I wasn't blonde, blue eyed and dumb).

    How do you do this "grown-up" thing?

    Yes I once had someone think I was a Canadian. I said I am an American. I am armed to the teeth. My bacon is bacon and not ham.

    So I shot him in the leg. He will not make that mistake again.
