1/2 English
1/4 Scottish
1/4 Irish

Extremely white. I burn if I'm out in the sun for more than like 20 minutes. I'm freckled, and pale, but with really dark blue eyes.

I'm white but dark... if that makes sense. I have really dark hair and green eyes. Maybe I'm evil or something.

1/4 German on my mom's side, some small fraction British, Scottish and Irish on my dad's side (don't know how much, he was adopted, so how they know he's part Scottish and Irish, I really don't know.) and a bit Greek too... The German and Irish show most, though. blond-brown-red hair, fair skin, green eyes...

For a patriotic nation you Americans sure don't like to admit you are from there, so what if your Great Grandmother's Monkey's Uncle's Owner on your Mother's side was from England? You are born and bred in the US, it makes you American, not 50% English.

As for me, I'm English, my dad is English and my mum is Scottish

Yeah, but why state the obvious?

Why claim to be 50% English when the last 5 generations of your family have never even visited?

50% dutch, 20% french, and 30% of whatever else you can think of, because I have no fucking clue, but im 100% dutch born and raised (culturally, yes, but not geographically) and anyone I know will tell you the same thing

Haha, Poggs raises quite a good point, actually. People who have been over here for more than a few generations qualify as 100% American. As far as your ethnic heritage (which is how I'm looking at this thread -- and what I think Louis meant to ask about), that's different.

I'm caucasian (obviously) and my family has been here in the States since the late 1700's, so it's proven rather difficult for my dad to trace all of our lineage (he's a genealogy freak, by the way) back to Europe. I have a very rare, Scottish last name -- basically, the only people with my last name are over here (in the States) and they are either close or distant family. So, yeah, I'm a good bit of Scotch/Irish (anyone who's Scottish is most likely Irish as well) and German, on my father's side and English on my mother's. So, yeah. I'm quite Anglo-Saxon, myself. I don't know how I ended up with such olive skin.

I'm mostly Irish on my dads side which would explain why we like to argue and fight so much. And I'm German on my mothers side. So basically we come from the two countries that are best known for their alcoholic beverages which would explain my obsession with whiskey and guinness beer.

Maybe there's a bit of Welshman in there? I don't know, it's got to do with conquerers from the far east a long long time ago, which is why some people on the British islands have dark hair & eyes, olive skin, that kinda thing. It's a shame I don't remember exactly - I'll look it up sometime when I don't feel like crap.

I'm 100% pureblood korean. With a British upbringing that tries to make me forget it. Descended from royalty, trace back to famous general in the 1500s. He wielded a 6 foot sword in battle, and absolutely demolished the Japanese fleet with armoured half submerged battleships of his own design.
No 'i'm 1/16 this 1/10023 that' for me.
