    White people are just cooler and will always be cool.
    Especially when they get rarer in the future they will be even more sought after.
    Dude, the important thing is don't get discouraged.
    As an American, I'm a little confused... where in the US are White people considered cool, or have more social prestige?

    Mortimer is talking from a European perspective. Things are quite the other way around in the US.

    ethnicity:

    a large group of people who have the same national, racial, or cultural origins, or the state of belonging to such a group
    https://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/...lish/ethnicity

    relating to or characteristic of a human group having racial, religious, linguistic, and certain other traits in common
    https://www.collinsdictionary.com/di...english/ethnic


    Herodotus (8.144.2) gave a famous account of what defined Greek (Hellenic) ethnic identity in his day, enumerating

    shared descent (ὅμαιμον - homaimon, "of the same blood"),[8]
    shared language (ὁμόγλωσσον - homoglōsson, "speaking the same language")[9]
    shared sanctuaries and sacrifices (Greek: θεῶν ἱδρύματά τε κοινὰ καὶ θυσίαι - theōn hidrumata te koina kai thusiai)[10]
    shared customs (Greek: ἤθεα ὁμότροπα - ēthea homotropa, "customs of like fashion").[11][12][13]
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethnic_group


    So ethnicity is a combination of either ancestry/race (depending what has more importance in your nation), culture, and language.



    DNA tests cant directly tell your ethnicity, though they can help guide in that direction or confirm what you know.
    Unless you are very mixed or adopted, these things shouldnt change what your ethnicity was and is.
