I would guess I am genetically 65% black. Its really hard to tell but I dont have the standard African features so I put many African backgrounds.

Why are you so proud to be [Irish, Italian, German, Russian,etc] when those countries oppressed your ancestors? You are proud of countries that oppressed your ancestors? I was born in the USSR but I am not proud of the former USSR or Russia today. I will not wave that flag during parades like you Americans do on St Patrick's Day or when Italy won the World Cup.
So why is it Ok for Black people to call themselves African Americans when they know nothing of Africa or their ancestors from 200 years ago?

I am what I am because my ancestors came here from those other countries. Should I just call myself an American or a Texan & leave it at that? My Grandmother on my moms side her father was born in Italy & settled in Waco, Tx. & were some of the very first Italians to settle there. They opened up Italian grocery markets as their business. She cooks Italian food & we still embrace the culture.

Why should you just go about your life clueless on where you originated from?

I am an American. My ancestors, on both sides, came to the New World, in the 1600's from the areas of Nordrhien-Westfalen, Germany; Antrim, Ireland; Somerset and Middlesex, England.
