I can claim no nation as mine if DNA is taken into account.

    I didn't grow up in Finland from where I have my biggest share, which is at some 28-33%, depending on who you ask. I don't speak the language (or languages, since part of that heritage is Lantalaiset/Kveeni/Menmaalaiset, and they speak their own Finnic language). It's a country/region that I've been cut off from and I have very little in common with them in general. But my native language and the country I grew up in isn't even in the top three ethnicities. Some around here would not even recognise it as an ethnicity I have any "right" to.

    The common denominator is that everyone in my family as far back as the paper trail takes me has been very poor, some also belonging to groups that back when were stigmatised, which is why they even tried to hide who they were to their children, changed names and languages. They all tried to outrun poverty by moving someplace else to change things around. They knew no borders, nor other barriers.

    On occasion I feel a bit rootless, but TBH I think it's a lot more interesting to have all these threads to pull on than if I didn't have such a mixed heritage. It's fun, and I cherish it, but it's not a whole lot to feel any pride about, because I didn't have anything to do with it. It was all just passed on to me. I thank all my ancestors for being in the right place at the right time. Without them I would not exist.
    Being Finn in Sweden is not that i consider to be "exotic" to be honest, from my experience it's just like being an Ukrainian in Russia.

    Ukrainian and Russian are both East Slavic languages, while Swedish and Finnish are not mutually intelligible. It makes it a slightly different experience even if it is not exotic due to historical presence of a Swedish minority.

    As a Pole you probably also feel pride being of the same culture is the guys in this video. It's all in the small things.



    Still pride of heritage, but over the achievement of your countrymen. No idea why the Russian music.

    Yes I'm happy that our government has created this Volunteer Home Guard (Ochotnicza Armia Krajowa):

    I didn't say one needed to be literally indistinguishable to be assimilated culturally. If someone is 75% German, he can rightfully identify as German.
    And most immigrants to Germany are Muslims who are not assimilating at all, and should be deported
    Who's talking about Islam? Yes, they are very bad at assimilating and there should definitely be some peaceful remigration from Europe if it doesn't want to turn into a complete "shithole" (c) aka Islamistan, but these things are offtopic right here.

    And what's more, Russian is probably more commonly used in Ukraine than Ukrainian. Needless to say Ukrainians in Russia are all Russian-speaking.

    Be proud of what you are, not what your 3rd great grandpa was.

    Most of self-identified German-Americans for example are less than 75% German.

    Most of them are mixed with Non-German ethnicities.

    The same applies also to Irish-Americans who are rarely 100% Irish these days.

    Its not really thought about. Like no one cares if you happen to be a quarter German. Im 100% Old Stock, but I mean, its more like so what? Ancestry is meaningless. Like I wouldnt say my family is from England, id say a state.
