    No, but I would correct them.


    Actually, maybe I wouldnt. No one's ever called me an Irishman...possibly for obvious reasons.

    But I'll say, "oh that's the Irish in me" when I do something rather stereotypical of the Irish. Same with Austrian or German or British.

    And I commonly say that I 'dislike the food of my people' (anglo and German/Austrian), discrediting it as boring. LOL

    Just wear the underwear the traditional Scottish male underwear then

    I should have been a Latina or a Thai. I love hot spicy food.

    I'm also Scottish and do love scotch however. And Irish whiskey. And German beer. I just said food, not booze, lol.

    Oh...and tequila! Viva la differance!

    I find that and the old 'one drop' laws particularly offensive. Traces back to a MASH episode during my childhood I think, when they discussed black people dying because they werent admitted to 'white only' hospitals and were, in that case, not given blood transfusions to save their lives.

    Hence the old expression, a "compliment"....you are 'passin', meaning you could pass for white. It always made me sick to my stomach to hear it and read it after that as a kid...and adult.

    /rant
    Sammy Davis Jr. even though he was a big star had to enter the Casinos he played at through the kitchen because blacks were not allowed to enter the main entrance. In fact I'm not even sure they were allowed at all. He also lost his one eye via a car accident because time was of eccense and the nearest hospital would not treat blacks.

    So sad how openly racist this country was not long ago.

Please stop trying to derail the thread. We have a kenyan in office so it's no big deal if we elect a canadian. A canadian would actually be the better choice since 90% of the canadian population lives within 100 miles of the US border anyway and are likely more atune to US politics.
    Your ethnic roots have zero to do with being eligible to be president if you are a citizen. Why even mention he has Kenyan blood if it doesn't matter?

    Your asking after receiving the reply you did in post #36 is astonishing.
    You're being evasive.
