    Post Interesting phenomenon

    I live in USA for about 2 years now. And I've been told by different people what I dont look like an american by face (not language and dressup). I asked them how can they see that but non of them was able to explein it. I'm kind of confused. So many different people of different races, subraces and nationalities live here but among that big blend one is still able to see the difference...
    Any ideas anybody?

    I think Americans are more interethnically blended, and perhaps the features are generally softer. European ethnics are more stable and endogamous so they may show peculiarities.

    A female friend of mine commented on how peculiar the British look.

    I think regional differences are interesting.

    I think to look like a white American, people associate American look with Anglo-Saxons, Keltic and Nordish-Alpine mixes. I'm American and I get questioned about where I'm from ("Poland? Albania?"), people talking to me in very in slow... deliberate... English. It depends on where you live, I guess.

    Enough non-whites already reside here, it's more a matter of mating practices. But surely as the non-white population grows, these pressures will be more numerous. People mate too young, they make too many mistakes while they're young, then they are ruined for life.

    Most Americans are not Keltic Nords, the British are mostly Kelic Nords, and they look very different from Americans.

    The Yanks look very UP compared to the Brits. The difference is quite big actually.

    In California we see so may people from other countries that they can be spotted even at a distance. It is not necessarily the clothes, shoes or hair style. Sometimes the pigmentation is a clue. People just off an airplane from a cold climate sometimes have a more "rosy cheeks" look than those hanging out at the beach. A German friend of mine picked out a German woman from behind as she was walking away. He said he could tell by the walk. Attitude is another clue in all this. Americans act like Americans in their body language.

    In traveling in the Orient where there are many white people from various European countries at the hotels, I was always easily recognized as an Ameircan, even in a swimming pool, even by Europeans. So this is not something limited to looking foreign in America.

    This thing of Americans looking like Keltic Nordics is overrated. People from the East Coast, New York City, the cities of New Jersey, Philly, etc. certainly do not look Keltic Nordic in fact most don't look Nordic at all. People from the northern states bordering Canada do, for the most part, look Nordic but it is a Nordic-UP blend. The same is true for the Canadians I have seen in British Columbia. People in the western USA are simply too blended to generalize.

    You're an expert on Americans too now? Wow, you know it all!

    Very interesting subject. I have that same problem all of the time. I have no foreign accent, but people continually tell me how well I speak English. I guess my body language gives me away; The fact that I dont smile to strangers and that I keep a safe distance from everyone makes me stick out I guess. In addition to Scandinavia, I grew up mostly in Eastern Washington state. Until I moved to California, I had NO idea how blessed I was to have grown up almost sloely arond Nordics. Anyone who visits Washington state/Oregon/Alaska or Minnesota (I imagine) can easily spot every subtype of the Nordid race in quantity, recreated in their true and 'pure' form. If you love to be amongst Hallstatts and Trønders, head for Spokane, Washington or Bend, Oregon. Petersburg, Alaska has an almost entirely Trønder population too. Does anyone know about Minnesota?
