Default Andre Ward - Part Irish?

Quote:
"Andre was born to Frank Ward, an American of [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] descent, and Madeline Arvie Taylor, an [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]"

Everyone is part something. Doesn't mean jack, it's what you identify yourself with, Andre Ward clearly identifies himself as African-American.

No lol.

Over here when we talk of great Irish fighters we dont really include Irish Americans. We only really talk of fighters from N. Ireland and ROI when talking about our boys.
