I'll match that with Welsh, Scottish, Shetland Island and Western Samoan! (That's the bits we KNOW about!) My cousins have the best range of skin colours in their family.... It is great fun to throw at those that are very retentive about "correct looking" (from an anglosaxon viewpoint usually)
I have ainga(samoan for family) that are Full blood samoan, Chinese and very germanic(samoa was a german colony) etc etc...
So we can usually pull a relative out of the hat that will shock somebody!
My adopted brother is almost certainly part aboriginal, my adopted sister is fair haired with blue eyes - just like my father! People who know we have 2 adopted and 2 other kids are totally unable to pick which 2 to pair together... why? they make assumptions
as to what people SHOULD look like...or should do....
