I want to be British sometimes, so I can have that awesome accent.

I've lived where the population is 6% caucasion. Don't tell me that I don't know what it's like to be a minority.

Okay I have been seeking an answer to this question for sometime now.  I am of very mixed race.  25% is the most I have of any racial background and I'm 25% mexican.  Does that make me a Mexican American (and perhaps more importantly a URM)?  I voted somewhat sarcastically on that poll that I'd because a URM because I have no faith in my own merit, but in reality I have great faith in my own merit.  But *&^%, if being mexican would give me a boost, I'll take that.   :D
3.7/165.  How crazy to finally have real stats...

Isn't it something like 1/8?  If you're 1/8 Mexican, that qualifies you as Mexican?  That's a number I remember hearing years ago, so don't quote me.
