    I'm half Swedish/Norwegian and half French/German/English/Scotch-Irish.

    So I guess I'm another Euro-mutt here, not that that's a bad thing. We've all seen what having a narrow gene pool can do to a population... just look at England.

    Thirteenth generation American. So i'm mostly English/Irish/Scottish/Welsh/Dutch (Ordered by amount) from my dad's side. Then 1/8 German and 1/8 Polish and some more English and Irish from my mother's.
    My dad and his grandfather created a family tree back to 1630. Several hundred pages of relatives...

    I'm curious about how long it takes for one to become American.

    I have African (Afro-mutt here), Muscogee Creek, Italian, and Samoan ancestry. I consider my racial identity to be one of a multi-racial, first-generationally mixed person but identify more culturally with being American, particularly black American.

    I think the fractions/percentage thing is silly, if not a little weird. Ethnicity isn't divided up in an individual like a pie. It just doesn't work like that. No one's "half" or a "fourth" of anything.

    i would say i am a bit half and half culturally, since my parents were representatives of their own way of seeing things.. or something like that (my dad is not straight from denmark however. just a second generation american, i believe.. my mom is an immigrant).

    Mostly Irish and German, but with a bit of English and Cherokee thrown in. I'm most in touch with my Irish heritage, but since my hsuband is 100% German, I want to learn more about that side to teach our future kids.

    That's definitely true. But I just take it as a way of explaining your ethnic background proportions; where your parents and grandparents etc. came from. But of course no one will actually be divided up that way.

    As Oz is a migrant country, a common question here is, "Where do you come from?".

    However I always answer the question by saying, "I am Australian".

    And I try to tell others to answer in the same way but the problem arises - what is an Australian?

    I know the answer and it is that Oz is a polity, but still they want to see themselves in ethnic terms.

    I try to explain genetics to them but they resolutely keep mistaking cultural differences for ethnic differences.

    Of course ethnic differences are a form of racism but no one dare say they are a racist, so they say they are ethnics.

    Our official and funded Government policy is Multi-culturalism, unfortunately this is interpreted by many as Multi-ethnicism.

    But ethnicism is racism by another name.

    And like rats we scuttle back to our racist rat holes.

    And to be a multi-cultural means learning the language and mores of another culture, and we don't want to do that for so few of us understand even our own language and culture.
