In your opinion, does this make me a poser?

I was once accused of being a "poser" and a "wannabe" because I want to learn German and I am ethnically German. My family came to the USA relatively recently (I.E. I still have family living in Germany and 3/4 of my grandparents came from Germany/Austria).

In your opinion, does attempting to learn a language to connect to your ethnic roots make you a poser/wannabe?

    Out of all things things that someone could think of to call you, I have no idea how "poser" even crossed their mind.

    Tell them they're stupid because, unlike you, they have no proof.

    No, it doesn't. However if you take it to far as in having too much pride in your ethnicity like arrogance, it coudl become annoying to others. I'm attempting to learn Japanese however I am of NO Japanese decent

    No. What that makes you is intelligent and intellectual, not a poser.
