    Re: On "German-Americans"

    Comrades,


    The population of America does not constitute a people but a miscellany of races, ethnic identity, religious affiliation et al.

    These racially chauvanistic, sanctimonious Europeans need to realise that one must regard the genetic affiliation of an American on a case by case analysis.

    There are whole communities in certain areas of the U.S. with populations far more racially homogenous and more purely of germanic descent than any given residential district of Berlin!


    Best wishes,
    _GM.

    What prompted this statement?

    I'm pretty sure the Europeans assume that everyone posting from the USA are either blacks or jews or jewish blacks. What does it matter? This is all purely hypothetical anyway.

    Yeah you wouldn't even want to compare the racial makeup of Washington, D.C... it's like 90% negroid. Firearm ownership is prohibited there, too. Before pepper spray and stun guns were made available around 10 years ago, citizens of the capitol had to defend themselves with cans of spray-on oven cleaner.

    Answer:
    Having read this thread from it's initial post.


    There is a general misconception among some of the european members that European Americans are largely racially bastardised.
    This isn't the case.

    Sure there are plenty of cross racial mongrels, but there are also many Americans of unadulterated - particularly Northern - European descent.
    Would you disenfranchise them from their european heritage simply because they are colonials?

    Best wishes,
    _GM.

    In other words, I'm right. Now you can see why I would say that the wars permanently changed matters between everyone, as wars frequently do. Furthermore, there’s very little actual blood relation left between the two groups, let alone that they don’t even speak the same language anymore.

    I'm all for German-Americans becoming "Americans of Central European descent". Let the term "German-American" only apply to people with dual citizenship and the few actual Volksdeutsch that still remain.

    Culture counts also. To be German you must be born German and learn German by listening to the adults speak as you crawl around them. To be German you must learn German Culture as you grow up in Germany and develop an German's soul. The soul of a German can only be obtained in Germany. A way of being cannot be purchased like a hamberger at McDonald's. Being is something that no amount of money can buy and no textbook can teach you.

There is no other way even if you could prove that your ancestors lived in what is today Germany since the Palo and Neolithic times and only left 100 years ago.

    I see, you are Disneyland´s expert on ethnical matters, nonetheless I think you should leave it to the Germans to define who is their kin and who not.

    Regards
    I agree with you, Germans should define who is their kin is and who is not.
    Thanks for your comment, though I don't see where Disneyland or ethics have anything to do with my statement. Perhaps you could enlighten me further. I seem to have hit a German nerve. I intended no disrespect. I can, upon rereading my post, see where you might find a certain presumption in it. I'll weigh my words better next time.

    No, I did not intend a fight.
    So what's your beef?
    I fail to see the big deal.
    Yes, and I stand by that statement. We WASPs are the true Americans.
    You need to take that childish chip off your shoulder and grow up.

    You're nothing but a troll. I wonder what German-Americans think about your earlier statement. If they have any guts they’ll stand up for themselves.

    Why did you remove the part about your "sir name" [sic]? Were you lying about yourself?

    More to the point, who even asked "WASPS" their opinion on this matter? You already claim exclusive rights to one country, you want to decide who is German too? Get lost.

    Yes, and I stand by that statement. We WASPs are the true Americans.


    Yes, I've heard the Mexicans say the same... they have the advantage of sheer numbers.

    You need to take that childish chip off your shoulder and grow up.


    Grow up and play at being "Anglo-Saxon", I presume... No thank you, I'll take the chip
