RECENTLY ON TOL:

A couple ideas have come to me as to why people may be asking what race one is. One, we travel more, and thus meeting someone of a race from the country they've travelled to, it may make them more comfortable as to what they might share in common.
Two, people are more aware of what different Asian groups they can identify. By asking, it may, or may not, confirm that they're right.
I'd be interested to hear what you feel about their hypotheses.
