  1. If she is born in this country she is an American. I don’t call myself German American. I’m sure a lot people don’t call themselves Dutch American or French American. If you’re were born here you’re an American

    1. Years ago I had the Census bureau come to my home to do a manual count. After she had gotten information from me she asked about my descent, was I Irish American/German American and such. I told her I was an American. While Native Americans were obviously the first here my family was amongst the first Europeans so I consider myself American. She said that wasn’t an option. We went back and forth until I convinced her to just write in American. Cracked me up later when she was getting information for my children and asked if they were Irish American/German American and such. I just looked at her incredulous. Were we going to have to do this with every child in my home? Finally she gave in.
