It it amazing how many days in a week someone will ask “what are you”. It’s amazing to me how many people react on a daily basis to a female with black hair and blue eyes. I’m Persian/Russian/European. Not that all that exciting folks. But it’s the way people react and ask that gets me, “what are you?” I usually respond politely but deep down I want to throw hummus or something ironic in their face and scream “I’m not a ‘what’!” If you’re curious where someone is from, that’s fine, but think before you ask.
