    I just don't understand this place sometimes.

    Actually arguing that it is erroneous to describe an Italian descendent man named Calzaghe as being Italian when it is in his damn nickname because he's not "pure". And they tried to call you a Nazi.

    Do you think Foxy would actually approach Calzaghe and say "Don't call yourself Italian, your mother is from Wales! "

    We are from the States so maybe the Englishman here aren't used to this sort of thing. :huh

    Nero would have to be Italian wouldn't he?:yep Niro might not be:think:lol:

    De Niro's Father was born in NY of an Italian American Father and an Irish American Mother.His Mother's Father was of Irish,German, Dutch,English and French extraction,and her Mother was of German descent.
    All the respective parents of Stallone and DeNiro were born in the US.

    Respectfully? That's very polite and formal of you ,did you mean respectively?

    Best not try and lecture when your facts are incorrect and you spell the subjects name wrong.:oops::nono

    Hammersmith in West London to be precise.

    His autobiography is titled " Joe Calzaghe, Pride Of Wales "

    but hey, why let a few facts get in the way of ESB's resident idiots opinions? ( who want to convince anyone stupid enough to believe them, that he is Italian. )

    I read the same book. Joe grew up in Wales yes, but English was not the first language of his father. Joe was sent to live with his grandparents in Sardinia for a while as a kid. For a while he Spoke the language and lived with them as an Italian. If that makes him 100% Welsh then that is up to you. This is not a traditionally Welsh set up. The place where you are born is just the place where you are Born. sometimes cats are born in cow sheds. So what?

    Joe comes from an Italian family. The Surname is passed onto his children. He was raised mostly in Wales and his mother might be Welsh but his father's family will always be Italian. Being born in Hammersmith will not effect his ethnicity or how he was raised.

    By your reckoning there is no such thing as an American, save for Native Americans, because they all have European ( both Eastern, and Western ) African, Asian, or Hispanic ancestory.

    Furthermore how do we know that English was even the first language of his mother? She might well be able to speak Welsh, and those that do consider it to be their first language.

    Frankly I don't give a **** what anyone else thinks he is. I'll take HIS word for it that he is Welsh.
