When looking at the American player Vs other players around the world, take stock of the …“stock”. American players have a human mix that includes has a wide cross section of humanity. European, Mediterranean, African, South American, Asian and just about every mixture from every continent on the planet. Americans are a diverse, yet richly proud of their ethnic heritage.
Boy meets girl… and away we go…
I would assume that in the Netherlands, the population base is fairly stable with little influx from other nationalities. Not so here in the States. America is built by immigrants, from one generation to another - thus the intermarriage and new families with a diverse aunts, uncles, nephews, cousins, etc… Take my family for instance - Dutch, Irish, French Canadian Indian, Italian, and Native American Indian. We span every occupation, served in all our Nation’s conflicts, and so it goes. So, one of the reasons for Americans being … well, American … is the stock that we come from. And @#!$ proud of it!
