what’s my ethnicity ?
my dad is from peru and my mom is white and born in america and our ancestors are jewish russians. (however i wouldn’t say russian is apart of my ethnicity since those are only my much older ancestors).. but this is a question that i get asked a lot and i always feel dumb for not knowing the answer.

Your father is/was Peruvian because that's where he was raised. You and your mother are American because that is where you were raised. You speak English and your culture and traditions are American. Your religion may be Jewish or Catholic or neither. You are, like most Americans, of mixed ancestry. If you need to label yourself, you can say you're part Peruvian.

You are an American with some Peruvian and Russian ANCESTRY.

If we're talking about ethnicity, then mixed should work.

"Mixed" or "American" would both work.

YOUR ethicity it YOUR culture, customs, affiliations and associations in the country YOU were born/brought up in and in YOUR family home so the food YOU eat, the language YOU speak, the holidays YOU celebrate....

To the extent that it is important, which you Americans seem to find that it is, you just need to say that you are American with some European and some South American heritage.
