How would you define your ethnicity?


I was raised in Hawaii, where my family has lived for over six generations. An ancestor of mine was a Portuguese man disguised as an English man when he jumped off a German ship and swam to the shore. He became one of the major land owners in Hawaii and ended up assimilating into Hawaiian culture. Although he was Portuguese, I know little about that culture. I have light skin, but I relate to Hawaiian culture. I often define my ethnicity as Hawaiian and get a lot of flack for it because of the color of my skin. What is your ethnicity and would people be able to guess by looking at you?
