I'm half Polish American, but I'm very Patriotic about my ancestry
How can you be patriotic about ancestry
? I think you mean you are patriotic towards the nation of some of your ancestors.
And stories I write always have a Polish token guy.
lol :) I bet he looks like Andy Sipowicz :D
Does anyone else feel this way?
Well, I was brought up to speak the language in a family of Polish immigrants, I married a British-born Polish woman, and I maintain contact with Poland and its culture. But I work and pay taxes over here, and my entire daily life revolves around the UK, so I have no reason to claim that I should defend Poland. I have much more reason to defend the UK, if it became necessary to do so.
Poland (and Polish-born people) couldn't care less about people like me anyway - we're just "Angole" to them. It's sad that Poles feel this way, as not all nations consider their descendants like this; but that's the way it is, and I don't lose sleep over it.
So I'd say that I'm patriotic towards the UK, not Poland. Claiming to be a Polish patriot would effectively be like joining the Foreign Legion and claiming to be patriotic towards France. I may be of Polish origin, but Poland's not my country.
