I'm proud of my British and Irish heritage, I think keeping an identity is good-I'm not just proud to be born here-I'm proud of our multi-culturalism (which may seem weird if I'm proud of being British) our nature/scenery, lots of things really-to not be proud of where you're from is to leave yourself in limbo-you don't belong, you're drifting-anyone proud of their heritage?

I feel like I still need to find out more about my heritage... I just know there was a change of some kind down the line but I don't know when or what is it.

Yeah. I'm proud of how generally accepting and tolerant British society is, as well as our system of taking care of those who need it, which is currently being destroyed thanks to the Satan reincarnates who run the country. I'm also proud of being from Birmingham, specifically the area I live, which has a very bad reputation and is considered one of the worst parts of the city, as I think for the most part it doesn't deserve the reputation it has, and I actually think working class areas have a stronger sense of community than richer places. Like you said, I'm also proud of Britain's multiculturalism

Yes I am. They run deep. The soil is a little dry though. Can anyone water me?

I haven't really got much to be proud about. On one side I have Irish peasants and the other I have English ancestors dated back to 1200s.

Also what is the point in being proud of the genetic lottery?

I have one grey hair, but the rest are natural brown so it's all good.

My roots are weird.

I'm descended from the Ancient Greek merchants, Romans in Dacia, shipwrights in Crimea, knights from Germany and traders from Switzerland, on top of the fact that I'm Moldovan.

Proud of all of them.

Not really, none of those accomplishments were down to me so I feel odd taking pride in them. That said I have a lot of respect for my ancestors/roots.
