I disagree with what most people obviously think.  Ethnicity is a part of identity, and identity is self-determined.  Mark what YOU feel honestly describes YOU. 

As a halfy other, I couldn't agree more.

And I really didn't like apps like UVa that didn't have an other option...

So if I am white as snow but I "feel" like I am black, I should just go ahead and mark it down?  ::) Then I'll join the FDLA.

Yep.  If you're white but feel black, mark black and see how far that takes you. ::) :P

I know how far it will take me, to the presidency of the FDLA.
