    O- rocks

    O+ are universal donors, but O- have the hardest time of all blood groups to find a compatible type.
    I work for the Aussie Red Cross Blood Service. O- is the Universal blood group. Anyone can take 0- blood in an emergency etc. O+ is the most common blood type about 40% of Australians are 0+...

    I am AB+. It's weird but all my girlfriends seem to be AB too. I thought that this blood type is not that common among Asians. I think it's very interesting...

    ...I don't really know my blood group, I mean I might sound stupid, but I did get my blood taken, though I never asked what blood type I was. *shrugs*

    B... shoot. I think positive.

    My mom's AB negative, supposed to be really rare. My little bro's B negative, also a bit rare.

    I chose "don't know." It's not something that I would ask. Now, I'm curious. I'll remember to ask about that next time I go see my doctor.

    This pie graph shows the breakdown of the Japanese by blood type. The website explained that Rh- (negative) types account for 0.5% of each blood type:



    Here is the general breakdown of people in various countries by blood type:

    For everybody, don't forget that if you have mixed origin among these 3 groups, your are in "other". Half Japanese, half European for instance.
    I beg to differ on both points. The term "negroid," while not racist to some (anymore than, say, "cracker" might be racist to a Japanese who knew little about the term) might well give offense to others. You can argue it derives from the Spanish "negro" or Latin "nigrum," but then arguably so did another word which we might agree is very much racist. The fact remains the word "negroid" is not in current scientific use.

    The term "Mongoloid" in particular has taken on connotations of describing a child with Down's syndrome (offensively) and should be used with care, as should all of these terms used to describe the very-much debated concept of "race." The scientific reasons for these debates are numerous and well-documented. As society and our understanding of humans have developed, the term "race" has come to be a much more sociological than scientific term.

    As in so many other areas, the terms we(you) use to classify others end up reflecting ourselves (yourself) .

    Certainly in Japan the term "haafu" is in common use, but I find it pejorative--you may say this is PC of me but I can't imagine a child branded as "half" anything could find much encouragement in the term. If we insist on labeling one another, I, along with many others, prefer the term "double," or, even better, just "person."

    It's bad enough that as a kid I had to fill in the little boxes on the standardized tests: Caucasion? Negroid? Other?

    Must we play that game here, too?

    A- by the way.

    Let's put it this way.

    There are "pures", those who can claim two or less blood relations to any specific sub-group of the human race.

    Then there are "hybrids", those who can claim three or more blood relations to any specific sub-group of the human race.

    I am a hybrid. Composed of 10 different groups of the human genome code.

    I have no weaknesses.

    My qualities are labeled as positive, which give me an edge against the competition, and negative, which instill humility that I use as a stepping stone to overcome hesitations about myself.

    They say that type AB is a little unbalanced because the A and B side are pulling them, and Os are the most good natured. As are very uprigt and driven while Bs are selfish and agressive.

    Of course these have as much basis in fact as horoscopes... but I have seen that lot of type AB people are... eh... slightly off kilter?

    I am AB+, and an Indian (India-Type). So I guess a belong to the "other races", though aren't Indians and Semetics considered caucasion? It is a common misconception that caucasion means white man, but infact infact caucasions in anthropology includes people from the middle east, india, and europe. Like it says in this articles based on wikipedia's article;
