Where are your ancestors from? [...] Note for a discussion, "E Pluribus Unum? What Keeps the United States United."
matadornetwork.com; via RB on Facebook [JB note: This interesting map seems to represent only the ancestry of "racially" white Americans -- and not African-Americans or Hispanics (although it does cover Mexicans; the "race" of Hispanics, see). I stand to be corrected ... ]
AMERICANS never seem to call themselves “Americans”; instead, they often say they are Irish, Italian, Scottish, German, etc. Although it is a strange thing for Europeans to hear someone who has never set foot in Germany say they are German, there is some truth to this American habit.
