Being of mixed “race” myself, I always enjoy winding up people at both ends of the racism spectrum, the knuckle dragging white supremacists (to whom I look like I belong thanks to inheriting my mother’s very pale Scottish colouring) and the right-on, ‘all white men are guilty’ loons, who are terminally confused by the fact that am of Indian ancestry. And even more confused when they are told that I was born and raised Muslim without ever having been knowingly brown.

It always comes down to skin colour, and both political ends make judgements about people based on skin colour, while calling it “race”. I suppose the fascists at least would admit they are racist, in the sense of disliking people of certain pigmentations. The lefties usually have no clue how racist they are, in their fervour to beat up whitey for the colonialist sins of his forefathers.

I too, am of mixed, er, "Race": Anglo-Saxon-Nordic. A sort of blotchy-pinky-off-white.
Edit
Anglo-Saxon-Nordic-Celtic

I have NO BELIEF in the existence of a God or gods. I do not have to offer evidence nor do I have to determine absence of evidence because I do not ASSERT that a God does or does not or gods do or do not exist.

Well, I'm the perfect French Mutt, half Southwest Gallo-Romano-Germanic, 25% Celtic Breton, 20% Norman and 5% others (Irish, Scot, whatever)... on the religious side, though, they are all devoutly Catholic.

Long lists of ethnic categories and identities are great for filling up uncomfortable lulls in the conversation when nobody has anything of interest to say.

You sir, stand accused of a surfeit of Islam while not in the possession of sufficient melanin. How do you plead?

It’s why I left Islam, your Honour. Don’t get me wrong. Learning about evolution and an aversion to high explosives as a theological tool had much to do with it. But the whole colour chart thing - that was the clincher.

But your pronounced brow ridges and the almost-nonexistent distal point of your lower jaw give you away, so you otter not push that point too far.
