After having some pathetic idiot attempt to efight with me on ONTD about how to determine nationality, I figured it would be interesting to see how you all determine nationality (not in means of citizenship or anything..). Here's what I believe: Your nationality is made up of where your mother & father were born, and where their parents were born. NOTHING else! Yes, your relatives from a long time ago may have immigrated, and it's great that it's a part of your heritage but I don't consider it to be your nationality. I think all of this "I'm 1/34830th Italian, 2/3478709th Russian, and 7/43780th Turkish" stuff is....balony! My nationality: I'm 1/2 German and 1/2 American. I was born in Germany. My mother is German and my father is American. I have both German and American citizenships, but I have lived the majority of my life in the United States, up until now. What do you all think determines your nationality?
