Past time I commented on Deen's ancestry nonsense

in response to reader comment: Who Are you - that is the question

It was your buddy Melvin who brought up ancestry, not me. If you want to tell someone it doesn't matter, tell him. I was just addressing his errors.

While ancestry can be important, I do agree that it is of vital importance who we ourselves are. However, when someone misrepresents who he is or where he is from, in order to mislead, that tells me he's at best not quite what he he himself should be.
