Is It Common To Not Look Like Your Ethnic Makeup If You’re Not Mixed?

I’m 17 and actually full Chinese and sometimes people ask me if I’m Indonesian, Filipino or even half white and half Asian. Am I just an outlier because I may look somewhat different?

    Sometimes, anything can happen because there is no such a thing like a race.

    Joseph Zeng is full Chinese (at least within 2 previous generations ) actor but some people think he's half white.

    But Southern Chinese actually are mixed with Southeast Asians like Indonesia etc, and beside there are a lot of Chinese descents in Indonesia and Malaysia, some westerners even think Southeast Asian people are the same like East Asian people. And check out the white YouTuber LaoWai who has a Chinese wife from Southern China, after DNA check he found out that his wife is actually not even full Chinese, she's mixed with Southeast Asian

    Were all different(dopplegangers i mean no ofence), maybe your family has some foreign blood in its lineage way back, or your just different, there are many case of 2 white parents having a coloured child, the other way round also, embrace your difference, unless you look like trump i wouldnt worry about it(anyone else think he looks like an albino goldfish)
