Sometimes I believe people feel more freely to criticize things from the United States because I have Latino background. I wonder if they would feel the same with a stereotypical person from the United States.
While I was at the local beach, I overheard a conversation between an Australian and American where a guy said to the American girl “Yeah, if you say you are from the States, you can see people’s reaction. They just hate the United States” and I couldn’t agree more.
Some people love to hate the States. I mean, is it so important for people to criticize someone else’s country? I know bad things from most of each country, but I keep it for myself when I meet someone from one of them as it is disrespectful to bash on their motherland. I could go on that we have certain liberations their nation does not have such as queer people being murdered just because their sexuality, equal marriage, women do not get prisoned for having an abortion (except some States), girls being able to get an education. They might want to talk badly for the U.S. but let’s be honest, which country is perfect? Heck even humans aren’t and that is the reason why countries are not because it is run by them.
