I only accept the fact that if you were born there you have the right to say that they are truly apart of that culture. Sure it's easy to say, for example that you are quarter Scottish, quarter Italian, quarter Irish, and quarter German. Though really, unless you were actually born in all those places at once that statement couldn’t really be accurate/correct. It’s more apart of your culture than anything else.
I could, by going by what the rest of you have said, except for the sulfur comment, that I am part Scottish (which evidently traces back to the times of Robert the Bruce), but I don't, I admit that I was born here, in Canada, and that I don't feel this overwhelming need to create a "hotdog" mixture of different races or cultural groups that people in my family's past have been apart of.
But that's just a rant that I have wanted to get out of my system for a little while.
