The definition of what makes one a Scot changes with the wind. That much I can tell you. While I am of Scottish decent, I will not lay claim to being a proud (and sometimes obnoxious) Scot. I do not know enough of the history, culture, and current events to claim that identity. Accent or no I think it's the culture that makes one what they are. I will claim my heritage and that my Scottish roots were forced acrossed the waters by some English military maniac. Until I can appreciate the rest I do not consider myself a "True Scot". Just one by blood and that's good enough for me, the rest will just come when the time is right.
Senara-ism : Life is like a theatrical production only you get to be actor, director, and audience all at once. So break a leg, sit back and enjoy the show!
