What do you consider "mixed race"??

Relax and talk about anything in general

I'm half Japanese and half Korean and a lot of people from my hometown in the West don't consider me to be mixed race.
From a genetic point of view I can understand it because technically Japanese and Korean people can't be differentiated genetically.
On the other hand though, how many people know that about Japanese and Korean people?? I feel like they would still not think of me as mixed race even if I was Japanese and Chinese or Korean and Chinese, which can be differentiated genetically despite the difference in language, culture, and appearance.
So, opinions??

you're not mixed race, you're a mix of ethnicity

But then I know a lot of people in the west that like to differentiate their ethnic groups. (ie. "I'm half French, half German.") and in Asia people make a point of identifying me as mixed and asking me about my different cultures, I'm also pretty sure that Europeans have an emphasis on ethnic background in some ways. It's just interesting to me how people in different places think so differently and similarly at the same time.

oh yeah

here in Europe a lot of people say that ..I'm half norvegian half bulgarian or whatever but they don't bring up the mixed race thing

since most people here are white they don't consider that they're mixed

Mixed race is when you're not one whole ethnicity. Which means, you are mixed.

I made a thread of hot half-Korean hotties... comment! teehee

I'd consider you mixed race. Mixed race to me is any 2 races together.

I consider it if both parents are different races. For example, the mother is white but the father is hispanic.

I don't get technically. I mean even if it is 2 types of asian I still say they are mixed.
