How did you get here? [View all]

To the US, I mean.

My Ancestors are mostly European, particularly Irish. No white man- no me.

Some of mine were already here, and the people and culture are beginning to feel the genocide committed by invaders.

Others were brought here to be bought and sold.

And other people have ancestors who were invited - not very politely. Because we took the territory that is New Mexico, Arizona, and part of California during the Mexican American War.
