Mutt? care to define that sir? :)
It's even stranger when they have a very mixed bloodline, yet they identify so strongly with Poland.
But it's not just bloodline, it's upbringing, it's what you are told you are, "never forget where you are from".

But the same shite can be said about people from our countries...
It is culture or if you really want to water it down, "perceived culture" but is that not what culture is anyway, perception? identifying characteristics that run parallel?
Yep, it's now being reported quite widely - not that anyone is surprised by it ;)
