Hardcore English. I'm a bit of a mixing pot really, but it's all from so many generations back that it's not worth talking about.

Indian British. My parents are by blood Indian (grandparents from India), but they were born in East Africa. I was born here and have lived here all my life.

I am (quite obviously) american...

but past that, my english side of my family (I'm one-fourth) got here in the mayfloweresque times, and settled in West Virginia, where they had a HUGE plantation until the Civil War.

my french side came over about 75 years ago (also one-fourth french)...

I'm one half spanish, and they settled in Florida at first about 200 years ago.

so I guess you could say, that I've been american (and so has my family) for quite awhile...

Does that mean if all of your grandparents were born in Chile, you'd be 100% Chilean?

So despite the fact both of his parents would still have been born in England, and he himself would have still been born in England, he wouldn't be English at all?
