I have a question to all Americans regardless of etnicity
USA is a very interesting country because all +cultures , +ethnicity, religion and background of people lives there. It is the most +diverse country I ever seen.
Do you still have knowledge about your +ancestry ? Does your ancestral roots still influence your way of life?
The +United-States is a country of Immigrants, well we do have the Native Americans but Majority of People there regardless of ethnicity are immigrants.
I Encountered White Americans who have no knowledge of their European lineage,They speak only English but they have no idea where their ancestors came from, They simply call them selves American who happens to be Caucasian. There are also ones that know where their ancestors came from, Some of them still have influences of their ancestry as part of their culture and some don't. Italian Americans I think are one of the Caucasians in the US who still have influences of their ancestral culture on their life.
Italian Americans, Some of them can still speak Italian, Some don't but you will notice there are still shades of Italian culture on their families like they still eat Italian Food and still practice some Italian family values.
I Have met Asian Americans in the United States that Still speak their ancestral language and identify as their ethnicity while there are ones who don't speak their ancestral language but Identifies as Asian American. Then I know a Filipino American who can speak Tagalog but Identifies as American and not as Filipino, He have a sister though who doesn't Identify as American nor Asian American, She just see her self as Filipino.
I once met a Mexican American woman with a bit of Portuguese Ancestry and she is very proud to be a citizen of the United States but she also embraces her Ancestral roots. She loves speaking Spanish with fellow Hispanics.
This is my Question to All Americans regardless of background, Does your Ancestral heritage still have influences in you ? Do you still speak your Ancestral language? Do you still cook and eat the foods from your ancestral cuisine?
