Since we don't know whether you're African-American, European-American, Asian-American, Native American, or sky-blue pink with purple polka dots, we can't very well answer this question for you. We also don't know whether you live in the U.S., Europe, India, or wherever.
We'll be glad to comment on YOUR answers if you post them here.

We'll be glad to comment on your answers.
