Notice: Forums will be shutdown by June 2019

To focus on better serving our members, we've decided to shut down the POF forums.

While regular posting is now disabled, you can continue to view all threads until the end of June 2019. Event Hosts can still create and promote events while we work on a new and improved event creation service for you.

Thank you!

It has never crossed my mind that someone should have to elucidate upon their racial background to that degree. I imagine it may be an issue for some people in socio-economic terms perhaps (?!) but this represents a failure to perceive each person's core individuality and humanity.

In any case I would discount any comment like "I am Italian/West Indian/ Irish on my Mother's side so I am very passionate/athletic/humourous this is tempered my father's level headed german blood etc etc" because I find it slightly pathetic that people choose to define themselves by abstract notions of nationality and race. Where does that end. One of the most prominent nazis, Himmler I think, once said, "I think with my blood". If that kind of thinking is up your street then I would definitely be out.
