I understand your confusion. Here in Canada... Toronto for that matter, everyone considers themselves whatever their ancestors are, unless they're 3rd generation born here (caker). Canada is a relatively young country inhabited by A LOT of immigrants. Actually, Toronto is considered the most ethnic city in the world. I know it's not right, but we just do it and we're used to it. It's hard to find someone over the age of 60 without some sort of foreign accent. The funny thing about Americans though... no matter where they're ancestors originated from, they always consider themselves AMERICANS. Kinda like what you're reffering to. I guess they're just really proud?

CAKER HUH? Wait, I'm 4th Gen, so what does that make me?
