Default ETHNIC research on SMASHING PUMPKINS members!

When I looked through old Pumpkins pictures with the help of Google I became aware of one of them being on a site called ETHNIC CELEBS.

So here are some statements about the tribes Billy, James and D'arcy come from; Jimmy wasn't under their radar yet...

BILLY CORGAN
Ethnicity:
*Irish, Scottish, English (father)
*Belgian-Flemish, Italian/Sicilian (mother)
http://ethnicelebs.com/billy-corgan

JAMES IHA
Ethnicity: Japanese
http://ethnicelebs.com/james-iha

D'ARCY WRETZKY-BROWN
Ethnicity:
*Ashkenazi Jewish (father)
*Scandinavian (mother)
http://ethnicelebs.com/darcy-wretzky

"Thank you very much for coming to our rock concert. It's always, it's always good to come here, um, my uh grandfather and my great grandmother were from Belgium. So it's always nice to come here and remember them, so thank you."

(before 1979)
"this may sound like an odd request, but my great-grandmother was from belgium. if anyone knows who my family was, i'd really like to meet them. oh, there you are, you're my relative!"

I always found it funny how a lot of americans have the need to talk and somehow brag about their ethnicity and their ancestors' ethnicity. "oh my great grandparents are from ireland" or "oh I'm 1/4 ukrainian and 1/4 danish".. who the fuck cares?

My grandma was Dutch and she was really no nonsense. She taught me that ethnicity doesn't matter.

Ya lol there's these Afro-Americans at my work and their always Afro I'm this and Afro I'm that and I'm like, cmon, isn't your cultural identity as an American shouldn't be most important I mean where even is their natl pride I mean might as well be their prolly Black Panthers in their spare time, plotting bombs n shit

Gives me the creeps! and more than anything I'd just like to be safe, for once, around ppl that are just like me, especially

i mean basically the entire us population immigrated there <= 300 years ago. it's more interesting/relevant/historic to look at ethnicity like that

ok, which netphorian was this?

from that link:

Corgan: Why are you here if you're here to badger me?
Iha: That's what they do here, Billy.
Audience member: Why are you here?
Corgan: To attempt to entertain, to attempt to attempt to entertain.
Audience member: Attempt is right.
Iha: Just play the song.
Corgan: If you expect me to take your abuse like a whore it's not gonna happen.
Iha: Just play the song.
