Dear racist Airbnb host, we've enrolled you in an Asian American studies course

One set of great grand parents were Irish. Another set were English but of French descent. Does that make me Irish-English, French-English or, as I prefer, just English (or British, or European (for now) as I choose)

As my father used to say: "What it makes you is American. We're all of the Heinz 57 breed."*

*I and many others of my generation understand the reference to "Heinz 57". I'll leave it as an exercise for the reader to fathom its meaning. A good place to start is "mongrel" .
