chess players in the USA are not 'real Americans' because they were not born in the USA.
Hikaru Nakamura was born n Japan. When he was two years old (about the time his parents got divorced),
he moved with his mother to the USA. But FishHead111 believes that he's not a 'real American'?
They are American citizens.They are indeed Americans.
America is a bit ticklish to deal with in the ethnicity department since it's been a melting pot for over 200 years.
That melting pot has been almost exclusively white western European throughout most of it's existence, until the last 50 years.
Yes, anybody can become "an American".
But NOBODY can become a REAL Dane, Swede, German, or any other European ethnicity because they moved there and became a citizen.
