Táim ó éire(im from ireland)
This is a Sig. It's horribly out of date.
French, British and Native, yay
ein, zwei, drei, vier bin endlich weg von Dir
fünf, sechs, sieben, acht Du hast jetzt keine Macht
I be Swedish and German
I'm C&P:ing this from the previous thread:
Let's look up the word nationality.
"... the status of belonging to a particular nation by birth or naturalization ..." or "Nationality is, in English usage, the legal relationship between a person and a country."
In other words, "What is your nationality?" is nearly equivalent of of asking "in what country do you live?"
You don't inherit nationalty--you're born into a nation, true, but you don't inherit it from your parents, it's more like you inherit it from the soil beneath your feet. You can also change your nationality (so to speak, in reality this often means to gain an additional nationality) by migrating into another nation, as well as you can renounce a nationality. Say I were to move to Norway, and renounce my Swedish nationality, then I would only have a Norwegian nationality.
What I want said is: Your origins is not your nationality, the color of your skin is not your nationality, your heritage is not your nationalty.
You can definetly not be more of one nationality than another. You can't be 1/3 german and 2/3 french. That would mean that you are have twice as much a french than a german nationality. You either have a nationality, or you don't have it. Beyond that, you can't "measure" how much of a nationality you have it.
Thus endeth the rant.
I'm of Swedish nationality.

My parents are from Bangladesh (for you ignorant people who don't know where that is; it's a small country next to India) so I'm Bengali.
Born and lived a few years in NYC, raised in ATL.

All my family that I know of originated from Ireland. So I guess I'm Irish/American.
