Which Ethnicity should I mark
Answered

Should I mark white or Biracial for my ethnicity on collegevine? I am of North African/ Middle Eastern (Egyptian) descent. I usually mark it one way or another depending on what the organization believes/tells me to. So I honestly don't even know what I would qualify under. Any ideas?

So white is a term for Caucasian. Caucasian includes Europeans and people from SWANA (Middle East (SW Asia) and North Africa) Egyptian is part of SWANA so this you are White/Caucasian.

Hope this helps!

Yep. North African and Middle Eastern (MENA) are considered White on the US Census so you would put down White in terms of college.
