    Yellow or brown skinned. ^-^

    I don't think skin color or background really should matter. It does not matter to me, how they behave is important to me. ^^

    Ya know, even the term 'American' isn't really right. It's understood that 'American' usually is someone who lives in the United States - but America is the continent. So if I were to say "Julie is Mexican American" the first thought would probably be she's of Mexican descent living in the US when I really could just mean that she's full Mexican who was born and lives in Mexico ^_^0

    I've been bitched out for calling them African-Americans and yelled at for calling them blacks. So I call them "Colors" mainly because the organization which represents them also refers to them as "colored" (NAACP)
