Post your heritage

first: what are you?

second: alot of people these days can't trace their family back past their grandparents. do you think this is a good thing or a bad thing?

good: people are starting to treat race as nonessential information.

bad: people are forgetting the original knowledge that their particular culture offers.

what do you think?

im half french, a quarter spanish and a quarter german.

i can trace my family all over the place
i dont really care about the race thing too much...whatever the minorities want to call themselves is fine with me.
personally, i think its cool to admit to whatever you are..even if its polish

first: I'm human. I'm a teacher. I'm male. What exactly are you asking? I know I'm being faecetious but you know what I mean. If you're asking my cultural heritage, I'm from a Mexican blood line.

second: it sucks not to know where you come from.

good: there's only one race and that is human. There are different cultures, however. We should appreciate them and learn from them.

bad: not knowing who you are or where you come from is rather sad.

Sadly enough i am cherokee, and several other kinds of indian. If you were to see my dad or great grandmother on my mother's side you'd know i wasn't just claiming that shit.

Even more sad is that i have both french and irish in me.

Though i really couldn't give two shits where i come from, it's not important to me and i'll decide my own history. I'm not my grandfather or my 5Xgreat grandfather, I am me.

I'm a total mutt, and wouldn't have it any other way.

Actually, rodney tries to foget his heritage because when he thinks about it too much he just gets riled up and then beats the fuck out of himself while screaming things like, "FUCK YOU FROG!" or "GODDAMN INJUNS!" with occasional "DAMN PALEFACE" thrown in for good measure.

I probably have some of that in me too. I wouldn't be surprised if some fuck way up the family line founds asian women attractive much as i do.

i'm irish.....what, you can't tell?!

i think people pay too much attention to culture and nationality. I think i'd talked about this in an old thread about patriotism. People are all just people.....no need to be extra proud of being from one country than any other.

I am Scottish (dads side)and English (mothers side).. with a wee bit of Irish (not much though). I have been mistaken a few times for being Portuguese though.. which I find to be odd.. people say that it is my expressions and facial features..hrmm..

It is a shame when people do not know a lot about their family background. I became interested through my old best friend Eileen who used to take me to the annual highland games etc. My little h.s bf was also from Scotland (came over 2 years before I met him). I don't know a lot about my mother's side.. but I totally have pride because those Limeys are all so delicious.
When I was in OAC sociology, we had to do a family tree assignment.. and detail each relationship.. I learned SO much doing that project... and I enjoyed every minute that I put into it..

The race issue is getting better with each generation.. but it is still a problem.. people are TOO sensitive with it.. and things seem to get hella exagerrated.. but overall things are def. better than they once were...

My obstreperous potato picking family got their asses tossed out of the UK in the 1800's. If the shipping schedule had been different, I'd be an Aussie.

As it is, I am a full blooded Cherokee War Chief.

That's actually about my exact make-up, and people always tell me I look Norwiegen for some fucking reason.

first: I am Irish, Scottish, French, German, Cherokee (and no I don't say this cuz its "trendy"), English, and Lichtenstein. There might be more but thats all we know about.

second: I personally can trace my heritage back to 1066 when we came over from France for the Battle of Hastings. But I know a lot of people that can't trace back anything, and in a way this is sad. I think family heritage is fascinating. But just b/c you know what your great great great grandfather did for a living this doesn't change your life nor does it make you better just b/c you found a famous person in your family tree.

I have mixed feelings about losing culture and ideas of heritage. I adore learning about other people's cultures, and I think they are very important. They have developed the way that they are b/c they work "best" for the group of people involved. Especially when you are talking about cultures that are relatively isolated. I think its very sad that we are losing cultures, but its happened all throughout history. If a culture isn't wiped out its integrated with another one. We should just try to learn all we can about them while we still can.

My friend can trace his family back to John Wilkes Booth.

Kinda pointless, but funny nonetheless.
