I am usually amazed when people mistake me for a member of another group. For the record I remain a Jewish American patriot with roots in various Eastern European countries. We do not know or care what the ethnic composition of AOW, Mr Beamish, Brooke, TMW, Warren or other Americans are so I am perplexed as to why my roots are of such interest to others.
We had the unhinged one at Bad Eagle suggest I was a mulatto, Apache and employed by NYPD. There are light skinned Black people but in my case it would become comedic as I am whiter than the non White White Supremacists. For the record the late Northwind was a French and Abenaki woman.
Over time I have been confused for Polish, Russian, Ukranian by members of those groups in NYC. While I undoubtedly have some of that DNA I consider myself Jewish end of conversation. Those that emigrated from Europe considered themselves Jews and I respect their memory.
Onto more amusing things I have at various times been accused of being a Copt, Assyrian, Armenian and now an Indian by Muslims. It seems that the motion of a Jew speaking of Muslim history via these groups is so outlandish that in the minds of Muslims I must be an impostor.
My identity and thought remain American and I honor those sentiments with my devoted service to the American people. I do have a relationship with an Indo Guyanese woman that is likely headed to matrimony. I have a wonderful parental relationship with her six year old daughter who never knew her father. This does not make me Hindu or Guyanese. I do have a love for the wonderful Guyanese community. However, I have similar affection for the Philippine, Italian, Polish, Dominican, Cuban, Haitian, Egyptian Coptic, Korean, Chinese, Japanese and Columbian communities as well. I am probably leaving out many of the communities where I have spent time. This versatility is what quite ordinary for NYC residents.
While commies like the Ducky talk of internationalism and treat the locals like domestic animals NYC types and real Christians like Junglemom, TMW and AOW live it each and every day. Our American DNA contains a bit of this and that we treasure our history and our American values.
