No, but I also barely left the country and since Poland consists of practically just Poles, people won't think you are from somewhere else when you are white unless you have an accent

All day every day. I'm black and white and people try to speak Spanish to me daily, everyone swears I'm either Mexican or Puerto Rican. I also get Native American, Indian, and a few times people have thought I was Italian.

People don't know my ethnicity exist. They start from east asia then go further south...

Like guess all the countries in asia if you want, but it's none of them.
