they'll be beaten until they learn ;)
So you intend on bringing them up the traditional Scottish way, good for you ;)
I'd hope that they would follow Miroslav Klose's lead and simply call themselves European :P
Can't we be both?
I see myself as from Dublin, Ireland, Europe, Northern hemisphere etc...
I mean if I met someone in an Airport and asked where he was from and he said Europe, I'd think he was being a smart arse, know what I mean? ;)
It's a form of snobbery, I think.
Considering many know about their Irish ancestry and how we fled famines and arrived in America desperately poor and in many cases hated like rodents, I am not sure if snobbery is the right term. Although it depends on what type of snobbery. e.g. Irish are better than Hungarians but worse than Czechs. (totally made up but maybe there is snobbery that I am unaware of?)
Everyone is confused about their ethnicity, We look at Europeans where it seems important to know where you from.
Country or ethnicity?
