...and I don't think people are understanding the fact that if one was to take my DNA samples, they would trace its origins to Italy and the mediterranean hence making my blood Italian. In terms of nationality, I'm Italian-American, I celebrate both cultures probably more Italian than American since let's face it, American culture is more or less non-existant.There's a big difference between nationality and ethnicity. I don't think everyone here is understanding that. Your nationality is the country you were born in, period (unless you've gone through a naturalization program to another state). But your ethnicity is your cultural heritage.
Unfortunately these things are often the same word. "I'm Irish" can mean either "I was born in Ireland" or "I'm an Irish-American" because the language doesn't differentiate.
