Be mad at me, but I'm not proud to be an American, especially when we have shitheads do things like shoot innocent people just because they have a different skin color. I'm not proud of the fact that we have bombed other countries to hell under the pretense of freedom when in reality it is for the monetary gain of some elites. I'm not proud of how much we consume at the expense of poor workers in countries like China. I could go on, the list is long. I'm really not proud to be an American.
Does that mean I hate America? No, but I am ashamed at what we are, at what we continue to be. Shut the fuck up with your pride and try on a dose of humility. We don't have a lot of things right in the U.S. and the actions of this one man and all the police brutality that has come to light recently prove that. As a nation we need to get off our high horse and onto our knees to beg forgiveness from all those we have wronged. We need to realize that like Jon Snow, "we know nothing". You think that owning a gun makes you free? Fuck off. Owning your own brain makes you free and at present, most people's brains are controlled by the media and their lack of experience with other cultures and ideas.
For all those who have suffered at the hands of America and his prideful ideology - I am completely and utterly sorry. It breaks my heart to see what we have done and continue to do. I call America "him" instead of the traditional "her" because I don't think that a lady would act this way. Only an arrogant man treats others with such disregard and inhumanity.
For what little it's worth, I'm ashamed for all of us.
