Food for Thought - Nationality

politics

Nationality  
 
Today I want to get people thinking about Nationality and what it means to them so Lets Jump straight in . 
 
 
  
Lets say I as a white Irish Person go to live in China . Am I now 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 I go to live in Japan , am I Japanese or an Irish person living in Japan? 

If they come to Ireland to live are they Irish or simply 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 ? . If we go to England and have a baby there , is that baby English or an Irish Baby living in England ?
 
 
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 .

Excellent and well thought out piece. I would go a bit further (something my Father RIP used to say). If a child is born in a stable, is he therefore a horse?

To take the Author's article to it's conclusion: OR simply a child born in a stable!
