Well I'm a part of that "we" and I agree. To pass is easier simply because the majority of the world will not stereotype us simply by looks. But that's not what I was getting at really. I'm just..WHY? Why do we HAVE to pick our native side, and be all interested? Is it a cardinal sin? We're gonna get crap from either side regardless if we do or don't follow tradition and identify so in a way, what does it matter ?

You have your life, your interests and your own pride in who you are and no one faults you for having all that right?

Personally I do feel it's sad that he does not want to know and identify with his dine side as well, but I also realize that it's really only becuase I do know and identify my native side and grew up with it. If I had'nt grown up with it, I'd probably not give a rats azz one way or another.

Like I said, someday dude's gonna wanna know more about it and probably have an appreciation for it.
