    Welcome to USMB! :)

    It's hard to answer your question. Standards differ from person to person, but my guess is that most people here would probably not consider you white. That being said, most people in America will not treat you differently because of your ethnicity, actual or imagined.

    Welcome.
    First of all, you look fat. It's a legitimate statement given to someone asking about what he looks like.
    Now to nationalities:
    You could be everything... Mainly Balkans. Roma, Albanian, Bulgarian.
    You look like such nationality.

    I was referring to the generic, layabout Hispanics. Aside from that, welcome aboard, InquiringMind. I'm a relative newcomer myself. Though a word of advice. It would perhaps be a good idea not to use an actual picture of yourself to accompany your I.D.

    It's just that some people on here aren't very intelligent, and might resort to personal attacks. Just something to bear in mind.

    That said, forget about announcing your arrival and start making yourself heard.

    Good luck.
