Food for Thought - Nationality
Today I want to get people thinking about Nationality and what it means to them so Lets Jump straight in .
If I as a white Irish Person go to live in China . Am I Chinese or am I simply an Irish Person living in China? If I go to live in Nigeria , am I Nigerian or an Irish Person living in Nigeria ? . If they come to Ireland to live are they Irish or their respective nationalities living in Ireland .
Lets expand on this
If I as a white Irish Person go to live in China with a white Irish Woman and we have a baby there , are we a Chinese family or simply an Irish Family living in China ? , if we go to Nigeria and have a baby there , are we a Nigerian Family or an Irish Family living in Nigeria ? .
Lets go even further
If eventually we all get Chinese Citizenship are we Chinese . Do we share the same physical characteristics and ancestry of Chinese People or are we an Irish Family who has been given Chinese Citizenship . If we then move to Nigeria and get Nigerian Citizenship , are we part Chinese and part Nigerian or are we still an Irish Family who has moved to those countries but has gained citizenship of those Countries .
