comment Asking ethnicity in German?
@ThorstenDittmar yes, he is, I agree with you. But this answer is not expected by the one who asks. It's like "Well, you may have a German passport but where are you really from (as Germany can't be your homeland)."

comment Asking ethnicity in German?
The answer to a question like this might be "Berlin" or "Regensburg" while the one asking expects "Turkey" or "Ghana". The motivation for such a question might be a foreign name or darker skin color. The one asking wants to know the "true" origin as somebody with a unfamiliar name or phenotype is not seen as a German citizen in second or third generation. This question is the worst of all the ones proposed.
