    I'm glad my ancestors stayed true to their roots and didn't mix with Slavs. I think being homogeneous has more advantages than being heavily mixed. I'm not only talking about race but about ethnicity and culture too.

    This is and always will be a controversial subject. I think what many people are forgetting is that nationality does not equal race. I believe indo-europeans have been mixing with each other for a long time so I really don't see the relevance to the original question. I will give a few examples: The people of Ireland are a mixture of Gaelic, Anglo-Saxon, Viking, Anglo-Norman etc. The English are a mixture of Anglo-Saxon, Brythonic Celtic, Anglo-Norman, Viking etc. The Scottish are a mixture of Gaelic Celtic, Pictish, Anglo-Saxon, Anglo-Norman, Flemish, Viking etc. The French are a mixture of Ligurian, Roman, Gaulish, Norman Viking etc. It's the same in just about every country in Europe. Of course as individuals everyone is going to have a different percentage of each thing judging by who their ancestors mated with. I am somewhat satisfied with using the "umbrella terms" myself (although these are probably based more on language and region more than anything) therefore I call myself simply Germanic. Although not perfect, a simple DNA test is probably the most accurate way to determine race, although I also believe skull shape, physical structure etc. is also pretty accurate, albeit controversial in itself. I think it will be increasingly tougher to determine these things as time goes on because of immigration which leads to race mixing with non indo-european peoples etc.

    Sure there has been mixing, but I think you are exaggarating somewhat. We do not know precisely what the modern populations of countries like England, Ireland and others are made up of. The Norman influence in these countries is probably almost non-existant, and the others are small as well. I'm not sure how much Viking DNA there is in countries like Ireland. remember that multiculturalists often like to say all countries are already mixed, so take what you read in newspapers with a grain of salt.

    Also, a country can have different ethnicites, but that doesn't mean the population is all mixed. Like in England, you may have more "Celts" in Cornwall, and "Vikings" in York, but these places are in totally different areas of the country. Just like we have Sami in northern Sweden, but that doesn't mean every Swede is half-Sami.

    I'm mostly German descent, but I love and take pride in my Swedish, French Huguenot, and Scottish ancestors equally as I would love and take pride in my German ancestors.

    I would say I'm about somewhere in the high 90s percentage of being Anglosaxon racially.

    But, whether you're German, Swedish, French, Scottish, Dutch, Polish...what have you...I think it is important that we all belong to one race and are all kinsmen -- the Germanic Race.

    I don't believe there is a valid answer to the poll question if your ethnicity is by definition a recombination of older ethnic groups. There is little difference between an Afrikaner who is representative of the old, average ancestral mixture and one who has a European-born ancestor in living memory, and being "pure Boer" is a valid sentiment for both cases. One still belongs to a solid, mono-ethnic group.

    Being f.ex. "half-Afrikaner, half-Dutch" would be a nonsensical label, except perhaps if you grew up constantly moving between the regions as well as having parents from both, and haven't managed to assimilate into either entity.

    Please close this thread. It's unbearable because it's so idiotic. People who need a crutch for their self-esteem and look for it in such an artificial thing like a nation. Get real.

    You can be "proud" at the most in what you achieved yourself, not in what your ancestors have been in the past. Everything else is a ridiculous surrogate.

    I chose "I am mixed, but I would prefer I'd belong to only one nation. ". The only people who arent of Scottish descent is my grandmum whom we believe was from a Prussian family.

    Im fully German as far as I know, but I would obviously have non-German European admixture as I am a new-worlder. Nevertheless, 100% proud to be Euro. I dont think us, Europeans, as a bulk can afford to look down upon people who hail from different ethno-linguistic background within Europe itself. I would rather marry a Slavic or a Mediterranean female any day over a non-European female.

    As long as the mixture is from other Germanic tribes I think it should be nothing of real concern, although it is better to be pure and I say this even though I am mixed because it does fracture the identity somewhat. I would much rather be able to say I am 100% Anglo, Saxon or a Swede etc. However I am proud of each of my diverse Germanic tribal heritages. To be honest I cannot tell much difference between an Australian girl who had Bavarian parents and one who had Anglo parents. If a Frisian girl liked a Frisian guy and Danish guy exactly the same then she should probably go out with the Frisian. But if she likes the Dane better she should go out with the Dane. I don’t look down on mixing among other Germanics in any way.
