PostSubject: Ethnic Backgrounds   Sun Jun 20, 2010 2:20 pm

What's up everybody, so reading beast's post on korean imports or whatever it was about. I thought of something. Why do say people who were born and raised in say the United States say, "Oh, I'm German and have some Polish in me." Why do they insist that they are ____ when they were born in America and live there. Why can't Americans say, "I'm American." Actually it's not that we can't say it but perhaps we are too ignorant to say it? I know that ____ was say our ancestors background and that's where are roots are from but our generation lives in _____ country. Do people who were born and raised in Germany say, "Oh I'm mexican and russian." (Random combination, I know, I know) no they most likely say I'm German. Am I making any sense at all? It was pretty challenging to word that. I'm not even sure if this belongs in random, but it is a random topic.

That being said, and this may be a contradiction, but what ethnicity are you?

That's how my friend thinks.

I'm not really sure what ethnicities I come from, but it's part Italian and part... some kinds of Jewish, not really sure which countries though.
