Can you ID someone's race?

Since race is such a heated debate on these boards, I was wondering can any of you identify someone's race just by looking at them? My friend linked me to this website. When I took the test, I was really surprised at who fit actually fit into various racial categories. Give it a try!

I got 3 out of 20.  Oops.  I wish I had read Ginatio's tip about clicking on them before taking the quiz, though I'm not sure how much that would have helped...

Gee, they didnt pick racially ambiguous people on purpose or anything...

for the record, asians, american indians and latinos (when euro blood is removed) are the same freaking racial group.
