Ethnicity can be so confusing.

This happened on one of the first days of class, as students were getting to know each other and their teachers:

 

Student: “Mr. Karabekian, are you Italian?”

Me: “No.”

Student: “But you’re from Italy, right?”

Me: “No, not at all.”

Student: “So, you’re not from Italy, but you’re Italian?”
