i would like to lay claim to the word afrocanuck which i coined in the seventh grade. It is mine so back off or give me credit. Thanks ;) I can't really say that comes off as arrogant, prudish,. Basically it's an idiom that I thinks describes me and probably a lot of other 1st generation immigrants and children of imigrants. Being stuck in the middle of the Venn diagram where I am not African enough for my relatives back home and I am not Candian enough for some Canadians.
