Rita Wilson[edit]

No source saying she is Bulgarian. Her father's ethnicity is not hers, and to add to that, it is stated he was a Pomak - which is listed as a separate ethnicity in Bulgaria. Bulldog123 23:05, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

"Bulgarian" may refer either to a nation-state or an ethnolinguistic group. Badagnani (talk) 02:30, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
That's true. Bulldog123 04:29, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
She self-identifies as of Bulgarian origin, rendering any further debate pointless. "My mother is Greek and my father is Bulgarian.", The Age. This has been used as a footnote in the Rita Wilson article, it can be taken from there. Also, can you please tell me where Pomaks have been described as a separate ethnicity? This is a matter of heated discussion, but the dominant scholarly point of view is that they are nothing more than Islamized Bulgarians. TodorBozhinov 10:21, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
Then put 'Rita Wilson's father' as a famous Bulgarian-American. Or prove she has self-identified. And yes, it is a heated-debate, so you shouldn't take sides, right? Bulldog123 04:29, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
Her father is an ordinary Muslim Bulgarian emigre. If her father was Bulgarian, then she's Bulgarian American, that's pretty straightforward methinks. I'm siding with the scholarly consensus in the Pomak origin debate. TodorBozhinov 06:34, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
What youthinks is irrelevant. What's citable isn't. Find a source that calls her a Bulgarian-American. Thaks. Bulldog123 16:47, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
