What's your ethnic heritage?

I'm always interested to know people's ethnic backgrounds, so I figured I'd make a thread here on it. Importantly: let's keep it nice - no ethnic comments that would go past any lines.


My background:
Middle Eastern/Arab (father's side).
East Indian (father's side).
Scandinavian (mother's side).
French Canadian (mother's side).
First Nations Canadian (Haida tribe; mother's side).

I'm pretty proud of my ethnic background - it's definitely interesting having family backgrounds that span such a wide variety of people and places. I'm also pretty much my own United Nations.



So, how about all of you?

From what I have been told I'm a mix of Irish, Scottish and Polish. I've never gotten a solid answer from either of my parents. Honestly it doesn't bother me though, I'm American and where my family may have originated from doesn't really define anything about me.

Yeah, your home nation is definitely the most important attribute out of everything. For me, I'm proudly an American citizens and proudly a Canadian citizen.

I still find it interesting, though, to know where my bloodline comes from, just out of curiosity.

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!
