yup, pretty much covers it. complicated, aint it?
*shrugs* Probably just a more complete understanding of human ancestry and migratory patterns, is all.

I mean, I would tend to think of myself as an English-American -- which could be phrased as English by way of America -- but, really, if I'm going to be complete, what that actually means is that I'm Norse by way Normandy by way of England by way of America and Anglo-Saxon by way of England by way of America and Celtic by way of England by way of America.
Or just American.
While I am most certainly American, "American" isn't an ethnicity in the way "English" is. Americanism is about political citizenship, not ancestry.
