There are those who point to my Guyanese pride as a cartoon image of the insane act that has been in the paper. I never denied my actual heritage or altered my bio. I point out that my family did come from parts of Eastern Europe but considered themselves Jews. This fact bothers lefties who invent fantasy worlds that never existed where Judaism was just a mere religious quirk.
Aha Beakerkin, just look at that alabaster skin and those mostly green eyes. Obviously there has been some miscegenation in your family tree. No doubt this is true, but it does not alter my connection to the Jewish People.
I live in a Guyanese family in a Guyanese enclave. I am quite fond of the culture and familiar on a basic level. I enjoy my family and participate in community events but I never altered my bio except in obvious jokes. My family was
at the Great Jonestown Koolaide party. I ate too much chicken the day before and was punished. Guyana is in my heart
And in my spirit, but I do not use the local accent except amongst Guyanese at a diversity festival were I place myself. This bothers plenty of people especially leftists. You are a Pole, Russian or Hungarian. I point out that I am a Jew.
Of course lefties like the Duck sometimes in bigoted rages say emigrate to Israel. Oddly those lefties who mock America and deludedly call themselves citizens of the globe do not realize how bigoted they are. It is racist for anyone to tell a Black go back to Africa or whatever West Indian enclave. Yet the same lefties will not think twice about saying go to Israel. They even invent fantasy worlds where Bernie Sanders is a dual citizen.
My love for Guyana is not a rejection of my past. I am proud of my family, except for my annoying and embarrassing youger brother. His over the top obnoxious flamboyant antics are a pain. His families aversion to genuine work and knowledge beyond religious texts is an embarassment. When someone reminds me about him I just say I hardly know the guy.
My love of Guyana is not a rejection of my Jewish roots or my love of America. It is a special love of my family and community.
