Wrong Identity 15 8, 3:38am

The difference is American isn't an ethnic thing, whereas Swede and Finn are. To describe something as American is to describe strictly a nationality.
"African-American" and "Irish-American" have nearly the same exact connotation, and Anglo-Saxon uh...not seeing how that's relevant to Fennoswede?

Are Fennoswede's people who have a history of ancestors coming from Sweden originally? Or were they just Finns whose history involved picking up the Swedish language? If it's the former than uh... Swedish-Finnish would be pretty accurate. The latter I guess not really and you'd be right.
