People want to know.

These are hilarious questions people ask me to find out what race/ethnicity I am. Them: What's your nationality? Me: American (Nationality: membership of a nation or sovereign state. )

Them: Where is your family from? Me: California Them: Where are your parents from? Me: California and Mississippi Them: Where are your grandparents from? Me: California Me: And Detroit Me: And China.

Them: Where were your parents born? Me: California and Mississippi

What they should ask: Them: What's your ethnicity/race? Me: I'm Chinese.

I'm sorry if you're offended by my answers.  I just think it's hilarious to answer the question truthfully instead of with the answer people are looking for.
