    Would I Be Considered German?

    I'm basically a mutt. I've got 3 different backgrounds:

    1/4 British or English
    1/4 Polish or Ukranian
    1/2 German

    Is there enough German in me to qualify me as being Germanic? Would most Germans look down on the fact that I've got such a mix? Thanks..

    You'd maybe qualify as Germanic and be able to join this forum. There are other people here with mixes similar to yours.

    You are not German however. I presume you are an American. I haven't heard anyone in Germany referring to themselves as 'mutt'. Then identify as Anglo-American or something like that, is my opinion.

    Good assumption, I am American, but because of my German blood (which is shared by both of parents) could I ever devote my loyalty and become "German"? I understand that my citizenship and place of birth make me an American and not German, but my question still stands.

    In Germany you wouldn't be seen as a German.

    You are using 2 different terms, Germanic & German. The first is a meta-ethnicity covering Germans (including Austrians & Swiss-Germans), English, Dutch, Frisians, Flemings & Scandinavians, the descendents of the Germanic/Teutonic tribes from the time of the fall of the Roman Empire who have maintained a Germanic identity & language. The second refers to natives of Germany, Austria & part of Switzerland.

    I'm assuming you are American. I don't think you would be considered German by the natives of Germany though you would be considered German by other Americans. Since you are 3/4 Germanic by ancestry I think you would qualify as Germanic or as Anglo-American. I assume you speak English as your mother tongue & this has been the case for more then a few generations on the part of your immediate ancestors. And you are part of, and assimilated to, the majority founding population of the US. We will overlook that 1/4 part of your ancestry that is Polish/Ukrainian.

    Thanks for the replies. If I moved to Germany, spoke good German, and acted the right way that with my blood I would be considered German?

    As long as you've got a certain line of ancestry to Germanics ie the English and German, you're Germanic in my book as long as you embrace your cultural heritage. Who cares what the Germans think anyway, you're your own man (or woman): and that's what being Germanic is about, standing up for your rights and not caring what anyone else thinks about it.

    There you go again making unqualified assessments about German-ness. What is your background? I highly doubt that it's purely German(ic), which would be the case for most "Germans" nowadays, and is probably even less than my German blood.

    I don't think you have to be Germanic to join this forum. As far as identity goes, I don't know why someone would ignore the differing European ethnicities they descend from for the sake of just claiming German, anyway. All white ethnicities are beautiful!

    What would you qualify as being "German" as opposed to Germanic? Being born off of German soil? Certainly the National Socialists did not consider Volksdeutsche any less German than themselves.
