^That's awesome.

My ancestors were the first 3 groups to appear in this country (well that depends on who you ask really). Simply put, they were the first 3 ethnic groups the foundation of this country was built upon. I'm very very proud of that.

50% Italian. 15% German, 15% English, and 15% Polish, 5% Badass....
and 100% American!

Anywho. I tell anybody who asks that I'm Italian, unless they inquire further, in which case I tell them "the list"

I've never considered people with multiple European backgrounds as multiracial or "other". To each his own.

Since I was born here, I consider myself American. At some point my ancestors came from Canada and Europe. I would guess that at some point they migrated from somewhere else before ending up in Canada and Europe.

My point is I am nothing but 100% American. And that's not listed. Now if the purpose of the poll is to determine race, then you missed Caucasian as a choice.

Caucasian = Most caucasians are European so the European choice is what your'e looking for. He forgot American Indian, Middle Eastern and Mutt. I'm pretty sure most people here are mixed of a few races though.

If you're a "mutt' then you're an "other". Yes, I did leave out Middle Eastern, if one of the mods would like to edit thie poll and include that that would be cool. Make sure everyone is included that way.

As for me, it's no guesswork really. I'm African American, English/Scottish, and Native American. I've always identified more with being African American more than anything, though people certainly tell there's a difference. I'm proud to be American.

As a side note; Last semester I took a Chicano studies class where I learned that the native people to America were also the same people as those native to Latin America. Really cool to know I share a common ancestry with Latinos as well.

Well, I'm Irish, Scottish, and English. Not sure of too many others in my family's background. But I believe that my grandparents and half my great grandparents were born in Canada, so I simply consider myself 100% Canadian.

75% German, 25% Swedish. I think there may be a very little Irish in there. Simply put, I can't tan. My family on both sides came to the U.S. only a few generations ago, so I guess I can kinda call myself "European American"

European. Got some Belgian blood in me from a while back on my mother side, but I'm the first one in four generations to have the physical traits, so I lok kinda arabic to some people, which is kinda odd since I'm otherwise entierly Swedish for a long time back. Some norwegian and Finnish blood from a long time ago that is all.

Well, I'm about as 100% American as a white guy can get. My father's family can be traced back to a Scottish clan that was here before the pilgrims landed and my mother's family can be traced back to a passenger on the Mayflower.

So, I'm Scotch-English (European), but I'm sure a few other things have been mixed in along the way.

Mom's side is/was German, with a little English and a little French mixed in. Dad's side is/was Irish and German, while Grandpa always claimed he was part Cherokee Indian (we never bothered to dig into it to find out for sure, but....). So, mostly German and Irish, but born here, raised here, and only ever lived here....(hell, I can narrow that down even further....I was born, raised, and other than 3 years at Iowa State, have always lived right here in the middle of the country, in Omaha, Nebraska)....either way, regardless of family origins, I'm 100%, Stars & Stripes, red-blooded American-Caucasian.
