“Caucasian Americans aren’t allowed to be proud of their European ancestry” Bull. Fucking. Shit.

It really pisses me off when some Europeans act like Caucasian Americans aren’t allowed to be proud of their ancestry. As if our heritage only starts when we become American. That before that we had no strong genetic ties to anywhere else in the world. They’re wrong. They don’t get to decide that. If they misunderstand how we feel about our heritage then it’s on them, not us. They can get as hipster and imperious as they like. They already have. I’m Irish-American and no one can/will EVER take that from me. So póg mo thóin!

  1. There is so much to celebrate. I was glad to have been welcomed in Normandy, two years ago, by people who looked at me and recognized my Norman ancestry.
