Whether it is or it isn't is besides the point. The points are:
Your question should be inmaterial. Unfortunately, the arrogance and racism shown by Fernandez is very prevalent in Argentina's upper social classes. It's sad and says much about people's low self esteem if they have to rely on historical genetics to feel special.
But he did not say Argentina is the most European country genetically, if he had, it would have been a pointless but nonetheless "meh" thing to say. He was suggesting something entirely different.
Rick Santorum kinda said the same thing Alberto Fernandez said.I would encourage you to consider what you'd think if President Biden were to say the exact same thing
I nominate this for the best post ever!!!Bolsonaro's response to Alberto.
Jair Bolsonaro respondió a los polémicos dichos de Alberto Fernández con una ironía
Be proud. At least you're more "native" than Elizabeth Warren.My family is a "Heinz 57" mix of everything under the sun. There are two native American women that we know among my ancestors, one Blackfoot and one Cherokee. And I have always thought of this as fairly typical of most people in the USA. So the idea that people get all excited about this seems to me a bit...surprising.
It all seems to me like, "Well, yeah, of course. So what?"
I guess it's one more of those cultural differences.
