I'm dark/olive skinned to being with, even though I'm most Irish with mutt thrown in. Anyway, when I moved out here to California last year... apparently I "blend" well because people keep thinking I'm Hispanic - ergo, other Hispanics think I look that way LOL
I was at the checkout in Rite-Aid in downtown Sac last summer and the clerk was a middle-aged Hispanic woman who said "Are you from Fresno? You look like you're related to so-and-so." (There are a lot of Mexican farm workers in the Central San Joaquin Valley). I laughed it off and said "No, I'm from Iowa originally."
Well, today I was walking over to Fleet Feet on J Street in Midtown Sac, and a guy handing out literature on one of the street corners addressed me first in Spanish... and when I didn't respond he switched to English. LOL.
So I 'blend'. This is not a bad thing.
