Goldsboro, NC. I have lived in the area my whole life, but we moved up in the world back in 1997 when we moved closer to the actual town of Goldsboro. I love it here and plan to stay the rest of my life..:thumbup:

Same, except.. I live in Durham. My parents were born in China, both 100% Chinese as far as I know, mother was born in Hong Kong (so I guess she's part British.. Seeing as at the time, Hong Kong was part of Britain, until 1993), and my father was born somewhere else, I forget the name, but it was a Nationalist area, but he had to move to Hong Kong when he was little..

Funny thing is, they met in San Diego once at church, but then met again in Raleigh, NC.

Oh, and Durham SUCKS.

Well I'm in the same situation as Leed is in, except both my parents were born in Korea, both 100% Korean, which makes me, yes you guessed it ... Pure Korean. Seoul is where my parents were born ... CAPITAL OF KOREA FTW !!! :p

yeah you couldn't tell by looking at me since I'm mostly nigerian so I'm identified as african-american but really I don't consider myself anything and I don't thinkthat when I take anonymous :thinking: surveys in school I should have to tell them my heritage as if it matters

don't be bored with your family your lucky you don't have 4 cultures to research and possibly 5 cause my mom, bro, and sis have an astigmatism only found in southeast asians which is a possible part of my family cause lots of southeast asians have immigrated to jamaica in 1845 to answer the call for sugar cane workers
i wish I could be that simple and know where I was from
yeah I've editited this post a lot of times to check my facts from reliable sources
kinda wierd I hope were not (not being mean to asians) because that gives my another culture to study and I'm lazy
