Wikipedia has users from all over the world, so naturally there are many races represented by those users.

African[edit]

  • Ken Bogan African American- maybe I'm an American who moved from Africa or maybe I'm a Martian who moved to the USA.
  • Vicent I moved to the U.S. 10 years ago and am now a high school senior soon leaving for college.
  • Sungmanitu We are all African. My ancestors came out of Africa about 60,000 years ago (although it's possible I have more recent African ancestors and just don't know it).

USA American[edit]

Android[edit]

  • ImageObserver OK, I guess I have to tell the truth. I AM NOT HUMAN

But, daily, people just call me BLASPHEMOUS and come after me with their torches and crappy fires... those silly people, ho ho ho. Frightening stuff, there.
  • Xeresblue
  • ang:User:Hard-or (Aasimar Moon-Elf)

  • Fruggo (I am born as Fruggo Nosebearer, son of a female halfling and a male tiefling - sorry, played too much d&d)

Latino / Hispanic[edit]

Latinos or Hispanics as used in the USA includes people from different races: descendants of Amerindians (American Indians, aborigines, native Americans) from Mexico, Guatemala, Ecuador, etc., descendants of Europeans from Argentina, Cuba, Venezuela, Brazil, etc., descendants of sub-Saharan Africans from Dominican Republic, Brazil, Panama, etc., and a variety of Asians (Arabs, Indians, Chinese, Pakistanis, Japanese, Koreans, etc.) from Colombia, Brazil, Peru, Chile, etc, or a mixture of any of these aforementioned. Thus it is incorrect to categorize Latinos as one race (it's like saying that all Americans in the US make up one race). The confusion may due to the fact that most Hispanics in the USA are of Mexican origin, and most of them are either Amerindians or of mixed European and Amerindian descent (most white Mexicans don't migrate). The most common phenotype among Hispanics, therefore, is that of a Mexican mestizo or a Mexican aborigine (undistinguishable from Navajos, Dakotas, Shoshone, Cherokees, etc. from the USA). The second most common phenotype is the Mediterranean/Middle Eastern physique; light olive skin, almond shaped eyes (mostly dark brown or hazel), thick hair, and strong facial features. These tend to be mistaken very often with Italians, Portuguese and Middle Eastern, since most of them are from Spaniard descendant.

Hobbit[edit]

Human (on a pogo stick)[edit]

  • JeffyJeffyMan2004
  • JB82
  • Dave The concept of race is an artificial human construct with no basis in science. It's a load of crap foisted on everybody by people who have nothing better to do than to think up reasons why people shouldn't hang out together. Boring, annoying, and just plain stupid.

  • Lusus - Im sub-racially Portuguese, racially White, and my species is the Human kind.

Infernal (Muahahaha! Mortals tremble before me!)[edit]

'Multiracial'[edit]

Undeclared[edit]

  • hoshie: Race Does NOT Matter!
  • Imma, simply, because I'm of many races and there's no "mixed" or "multi-ethnic/racial" category.
  • Magadan Categorizing people by race is very, very out of fashion in my country (Germany) since 1945.
  • Mbecker, I think that categorizing oneself by race is as bad as categorizing oneself by religion. It shouldn't matter (even though I don't care if people know what race I am).
  • utcursch
  • zeno, well, categorizing oneself by "race" is worse, as you may (more or less) freely choose your religion. Hm, well, you can somewhat choose your race, too ;-)
  • Gerrit, what a bullshit.
  • Bastique, isn't "bullshit" plural?

Don't know[edit]

  • Node ue 06:09, 21 Jan 2005 (UTC) I'm not really into marathons.
  • Mikez I don't know what this 'race' is called, but it consists of all thinking, self-aware beings whithin the observable universe.
  • TakuyaMurata What is my race?
  • Aalahazrat People from most races reject me as one of them. So Here I am ... Confused and Dejected.
  • Rootlevel I am a race of my own.
