Comment

1)  The great majority of European Volga Germans moved back to Germany and are German citizens.  Some of them may like a Volkswagon SUV.

2)  It seems to matter to America that they live in Germany so they aren’t as disparate as Americans based on per capita income.  You may find people causing some PR problems by suggesting they are black or from an LDC.(1)  It’s just Germans that are white.

3)  You may find a great number of Hispanics, blacks and others with much greater disparity in wealth living in America compared to LDC origin.

4)  Salt Lake County Angle:  Some suggest going with Portland Volga Germans for PAC 12 reason and to distance from AHSGR because they’re “the Utah County ones.”  They also flip flop on prominence of VG compared to GR.

5)  The following link suggests that the Soviet Volga Germans fought against the Nazis in World War IIhttp://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?t=255347
