Racial Full Disclosure

For those of you who are keeping track, I should disclose that I am indeed bi-racial.  My family tree was painstakingly researched going back 8 generations and we discovered a little something extra in the genetic mix.

It turns out I am 25% Irish. 25% Anglo. 25% Saxon.  And 25% … Welsh.

 

The shame of this will be difficult to overcome, but we must all embrace diversity wherever it raises it’s ugly head.

    The earth contains no race of human beings so totally vile and worthless as the Welsh … I have expended in labour, within three years, nearly eight thousand pounds amongst them, and yet they treat me as their greatest enemy.
    Walter Savage Landor, British poet, letter to Robert Southey

    I learned the first verse of this as a child and thought it was somewhat apropos, in light of your revelations:

    Taffy was a Welshman, Taffy was a thief;
    Taffy came to my house and stole a leg of beef;
    I went to Taffy’s house and Taffy was in bed;
    So I picked up the Gerry pot and hit him on the head.

    Taffy was a Welshman, Taffy was a thief;
    Taffy came to my house and stole a piece of beef;
    I went to Taffy’s house, Taffy wasn’t in;
    I jumped upon his Sunday hat and poked it with a pin.

    Taffy was a Welshman, Taffy was a sham;
    Taffy came to my house and stole a piece of lamb;
    I went to Taffy’s house, Taffy was away,
    I stuffed his socks with sawdust and filled his shoes with clay.

    Taffy was a Welshman, Taffy was a cheat,
    Taffy came to my house, and stole a piece of meat;
    I went to Taffy’s house, Taffy was not there,
    I hung his coat and trousers to roast before a fire.
