Did you know? I’m a Cherokee princess. And I am also Welsh, English, German, Jewish and let’s see here, how about a dash of Irish for good luck. Which brings me to St. Patricks Day. I am all about celebrating your heritage. I get that and you should. Different cultures and respect of them is what makes up this beautiful country. However I did not come over from Ireland. Or england. Or Spain. Or France. Or Africa or even Mexico. I was born here and my parents are runts. I find it hilarious (and fun) that all us Americans who do not come from generations of one culture, try to identify our selves with some long lost heritage. Yes I can look back and appreciate it and study and think how great it is but in reality I am not apart of that culture at all. I am a part of American Culture whether I want to admit or not. The above cultures that I spouted as being my heritage are indeed my heritage (minus cherokee princess). That being said, I respect them but would never say I am jewish or irish, etc. Why? Because I’m not. I am Maggie of the United States. I love celebrating other cultures, good food and booze, why the hell not? You can look at some of my friends and it’s obvious they are Puerto Rican or African American. People don’t look at me and say “You must be German”. They look at me and say “Wow You’re white, I mean pale, do you feel ok? Do yo need to sit down?” Number one, you never point out someones ethnicity to them, it’s stupid. Number two, if someone is very white, do not automatically assume they are not feeling well. This is also stupid. Back to the point though and that is if it’s not very obvious that you are from the ethnicity you tout or your “irish” blood line is now a calico mix of other cultures(by this I mean more than 2), then be happy to join in the celebrations of cultures but don’t say you are Swedish if you are really from the broncs. Ok, just sayin.
Another note, War. Wow so we are in another war. Why don’t we just take on the whole world and get it over with? Then we can prove to people we are ninja ass kickers and everyone will be like “whoa! Don’t mess with the U.S.!” Seriously why is it we have to get involved? Oh and our economy, what will happen there? Yeah the president sure is thinking of us right now. Thanks Obamalamadingdong.
