@directhex @directhex I find it a fascinating exercise. The unifying ethnicity that brought most of my ancestors to America was "Catholic", which is weird to unpack on several levels. Most of the last names on my family tree are Ellis Island respellings of German. My mother's maiden name they thought was Scottish for decades, but that was an American lie to avoid Irish association and the name is Scotch Irish from the Catholic Irish side of the fence.


@directhex Which was part of what led me to absolute floored that Clowns are racist stereotypes that have been white washed and forgotten now that Americans think Irish are white.
