There was a comment on here recently about one of us who "looks" Latin American. I'm sure no harm was intended, but a lot of people do still casually talk in this way without being aware of how factually erroneous their utterance is: of course, where we're from is nothing more and nothing less than an accident of history; and how we "look" is, merely and simply, an accident of biology.
My best friend was born and grew up in England, just as I was/did. He's English/British. I'm also English/British. My parents were immigrants to England; my friend's parents were also immigrants to England. But I'm FROM England, and he's FROM England. However, the fact that he is brown causes a lot of people to ask him a question which I've never been asked: "Yeah, but where are you REALLY from?", to which he habitually responds: "I was REALLY born, and I REALLY grew up, in Chester, Cheshire, England."
