Unfortunetely, we're related. Instead of trying to have some self dignity, and dignity for our lineage, you take the opportunity to make a socio-political statement on your homepage? Let's try and be fine examples of the families who settled this land by doing some real homework(i.e. work hard by doing actual research) on what being an American is. I'm sure you'll never find the answer, and I won't give it to you. You're already lost in the maisma of destroying the fabric of our wonderful nation. But be happy! You're an American Idol!
