Half Mexican/half Albanian

Mexican on my mother's side, Albanian on my father's side. I hate being a halfie because it makes me wonder if people look at me and think, "What the hell is she?" Sometimes people assume ignorant crap, one time a former co worker said to me, "You know what, Elizabeth, I'm trying to learn Spanish so I can talk to you." I do not even speak Spanish. He said that as if he couldn't have just talked to me in English, the only language I know. It also ****** me off when at work sometimes Mexican customers talk to me in Spanish and most of them already know English.  One time at a class called Office Procedures, the teacher went around the room identifying everyone's ethnicity/heritage/race, whatever you want to call it. I was the very last person, she pointed at me and said, "And what ethnicity are you?" She made me feel like a freak when she said that. I have never identified more with either side, I have just always identified with myself. If you're wondering I have olive skin, hazel eyes, and naturally dark brown hair. Truth is, I could pass for any number of ethnicities.

Elizabeth everyone is telling you that you should be proud for whom you are and you should no question your self about it! But what I suggest you is that you should educate yourself a little bit more to learn more about your ruts from your Albanian side or Mexican side! I'm 100% Albanian my self married with Japanese wife and we have daughter half Japanese half Albanian and she is very happy girl and feel very special about her self! You should take some time of and travel in both country's of your origin Mexico & Albania spend some time there learn about each culture then you will understand how special you really are! Best regards from Leo Osaka Japan

Hi Elizabeth, I Just wanted to tell you that I understand what you have gone through, but being multi-ethnic is such a blessing! Coming from a multicultural family ( like yourself, except in my case its a bit more mixed, my mother is mexican and my father is half african american and half japanese) I understand your frustration sometimes. But after time and time again of being asked "What are you?" I have learned to LOVE it. It makes you exotic and unique to anyone else. When you get asked these questions, its the perfect time to educate others around you ( that may come from just one ethnicity) to help them understand your diversity and how AMAZING it is to be able to identify with more than one ethnicity. We are born diverse and more culturally educated than most-- lets embrace it! One interesting thing is that I am currently dating a Kosovar-Albnanian and we are starting to plan our lives together ( getting engaged! :) ) And although we know that we are to face struggles up ahead, we are looking forward to having a multiethnic life and family together <3

I love you story. I will in the future have to deal with this issue you have now. I have two kids. They are both born here in the U.S but I'm Peruvian (mom) and my husband is Albanian. So they are considered mixed but just like you, they so far only speak English, little Spanish too. So I'm sure one day they will have to encounter the same situations like yours. Thanks for you story.

Why do you even complain? I am 100% mexican and I wish I had some foreign blood in me to be more interesting, and you got it! I want my kids to be multicultural and I am marrying an extraordinary Albanian guy :) You should feel proud when you say you're half and half, you're not dull like them.. or me!

Most mexican people are mestizo/mestiza,which are half european(mostly spanish) and half indigenous

Unlike you I am 100% Albanian I know a little bit of spanish took it for five years in both middle school and high school, i did not know Albanians mixed with other people. From all the Albanians I know, friends and family, they are all strict about race and ethnicity. I don't care about that, it would be interesting to find a girl outside of my ethnicity though I will certainly get no support. You are not a freak, you are an interesting person.

People come up and speak Spanish to me too..

Well im proud to say i'm half russian and half mexican! I also have a half russian half brazilian sister and another one who is half russian half filipino. I have to say though i came out the prettiest lol ;)

My daughter is half Indian Asian and half Albanian! Albanian people are so friendly welcomed me and my daughter love my skin colour brown is so inn and Whateva people say albanian people is wrong they are patriotic kinds friendly stand up for what the believe in and respect each there! I am so happy to be with my partner i believe if he had not been brought up where he had and learnt the values and respect he has he would not be who he is today! There are good Albanians and bad Albanians like good English men and bad Englishman good Brazilian and bad Brazilian the list goes on but a big middle finger to anyone who questions Albanian people! Lol I not even Albanian!

I'm half albanian and half Australian so I know how you feel I'm always getting asked what nationality I am people just cant figure it out and it does get irritating thats for sure. Like yourself I only speak english and I dont really know many albanian people Not many of them here in Oz. I was once speaking to a lady on the phone in fluent english about a job and she asked me if I could speak english deeer lol ! On my mothers side I am eight generation Australian so it bugs me when people try to treat me as a foreigner

this is a cool page....hey girl i dont know well any mexicans but you can always use your albanian half to smack anyone who tries to put you down.<br />
te pershendes<br />
plus you can use your mexican side to feed the coffee addiction of your albanian side :D

Hi, I think you should be prod to be mix race. Albanians are the most ancient people in Europe same as their language. Don't read what Serbs like jomclassy write. He is presenting himself as Albanian in a purpose to spread hate against Albanians. For sure, he dies from a wish to be Albanian but no one can help him :)))

Don't label people

Be proud of yourself and don't listen to anyone his words makes you lose confidence in yourself , believe me it's a nice thing to be mixed race , you are a human being like them too , forget about them and always remember that YOU ARE UNIQUE that's why other people are jealous from you because they are not unique like you , be away from who makes you feel sad or who hurts you by their words or acts .

you know what you tell ppl who ask what you are you tell them same as you amercain. tell them you bleed red like the rest of the world and if they are to dumb to realize you are a great person then they can go **** them selves.

Hello -Tungjatejeta<br />
I like to meet people which are half albanians because I'm albanian from Kosovo.<br />
But I was born in Switzerland and I'm stil living here.<br />
Its very hard to be a Albanian here because the albanians did kriminal kills ect.<br />
Sometimes I dont like to be albanian but its ok.

Hi there. <br />

You should be proud of that your mixed.<br />
I'm half Albanian too, <br />
I'm Dominican & Albanian.<br />
And many ppl have been saying that your more pretty, beutiful etc. if your mixed.<br />
So be proud! <br />
I know I am.
