You're a human being. In Buddhism, all human beings are equal.
When I first started practicing with other Buddhists, a lot of the members were Asian, but over time more and more Americans have joined the groups I hang with in Oregon and now Washington.
One guest speaker at a meeting here a while ago commented on how diverse the audience was, racially, ethnically, and age wise too.

I drink both, but I go with the full strength stuff until at least noon most days. :)
