    BG Demographics part deux!

    Since we already had a shitty poll about BG's religious composition, let's have a poll about BG's ethnic composition instead, except with a little more options. Just choose the option that pairs up the closest with your phenotype, that is, appearence, not based on what your parents objectively were. I probably won't be adding an "Other" option since it is a given that ethnicity is not a white or black thing, but for the purposes of the poll it is!

    None of those options really cover spain/portugal/azores well. White-eurpoean is what I wrote cuz I'm part irish too but that part of europe isn't really as white as france.

    I'm pretty sure that Spain/Portugal/Azores is part of Europe, homie.

    Yea that would be Europe. Naturally, ethnicity in reality is way more complex and dinamic than a single category, but that is a bit too hard to handle with so few options.

    For example, people might ask why i divided arabs and turks and indo-europeans into separate categories thinking that they are the same (when they very much aren't), yet the same could be said for the category Asian, which is probably filled with groups that are very very different. But since i knew less of Asian ethnicity i had to stick with one category, and the Latin one was also a major problem for me, since some regions have more mulatos than mestizos, others have more mestizos, and others have more ameriindians (native americans), but since they do share a form of common ground i decided to put them into a single category. And because i needed to save space.

    Kuya why did you have to go and make it all politically correct? Where's the fun in that. With permission I'd like to propose and post a race poll based on facts....

    Let me get on that.

    Yes European would cover that one, since i decided to put all those together since that's what people commonly get by "white".

    Definitely trolled. Then again Wafik would count as one of those boujie ass bush niggas from the outback. Just pretend that is the case and call it a day.

    What's the point of separating white and Indo-European? same group.

    Same thing with Asian and Turk...

    If you're going to try to get all selective, you can't include a group and it's subgroup... all euro whites are indo-european, and all turks are asians(and most asians are turks...) And all latin americans are native americans/vice versa.

    And all indians are indo-european too...

    Ok I could go on forever about what's wrong with the poll choices..lol

    I think a better race-based poll would have been "what do you eat?"

    - fried chicken and watermelon
    - buffalo or kangaroos depending on region of the world
    - rice and possibly dogs
    - tacos and burritos and maybe chimichangas
    - casseroles and hotdishes

    could probably do a few more but I think those hit the main races.

    Yuri has the right idea. Being PC only sets you up for being trolled.

    Sorry, I tried to be serious, but every time I see the word aboriginal I feel compelled to click it.
