    I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm......??

    Wait... am I an American?

    What with all the "I want an All-American boy" posts, I'd say this sentiment is pretty pervasive in gay and straight society alike.

    Oddly enough, had this been a Black singer, I do NOT think they would have taken nearly the same amount of flak.

    So no, this isn't a rascim topic per-se, but more of a "what does it mean to be American" issue. For the record, I am proud to be an American. I could have been born into an impoverished life of pseudo slavery somewhere in an African country.

    Yeah yeah, I know not everyone harbors these disgusting thoughts against certain minorities (that goes without saying). But I do think society at large has an image of what an American looks like.

    Yes I am talking about the United States of America.

    Toodaloo

    NOPE, I don't agree. I think that racists are really loud and they also have their own media machine these days. Fox News and too many others. They aren't America though.

    Your post is kind of confusing, but I think I know what you are getting at.

    Some people were outraged that there was a Mexican-American little boy singing the National Anthem during the NBA Finals. Some people are just idiots and don't represent the majority.
