Paul Jay How ethnically diverse are we? (186* d) RE: How ethnically diverse are we? 17 Jun 99


This is an amazing thread. I am-I think- 1/2 Irish and 1/2 Jewish and grew up in Arkansas. I play any kind of music I like(which is most kids of folk music). The "I Think" comes from the fact that I am adopted. I used to get a little jealous when people started spouting off their blood lines, but I quickly came to realize what a wonderful family I had been made a part of. It was also very neat to have gotten out of some of those High School Biology assignments in geneoligy.

I guess I would like all the 'Catters that can trace their family back 100 years or 1200 years to be thankful of the care there must have been to sucessfully nurture all those children to adulthood so "we" could be here and make music.

Another thing I would like to comment on is how fortunate those of us are who live in the U.S. I teach in a Community College where there are many different ethnic, racial,and religious backgrounds. Sometimes I have students from two backgrounds that are slaughtering each other in their homelands and they are friends (or at least work well together) here. I think that says a lot for our good ole "Melting Pot"

As they say on another thread, slante!
