EXPOSING THE BIAS ww ESSAYS

Proud to be an American? Yes I am.

Sure we’ve got our issues, especially being such a new country – only two hundred and forty-three years old. We have lots of areas we can improve on, in fact in every area, and we as a people strive to do that.

We’ve come a long way in only 243 years, especially compared to those countries who have been around for thousands of years, places where women still can’t drive a car or show their hair in public or don’t have running water or electricity, or places where they hang people for being gay or places that stone people to death or set people on fire or conduct widespread amputations as punishment or spiritual practices, those areas that for whatever reason didn’t advance. They didn’t become better for everyone, only a few.

We didn’t have privilege. We all came with nothing into the wilderness and look what was built?

It’s understandable that people around the globe want to come to a place that already has all the upgrades and leave behind a place that wouldn’t progress to where we are in their lifetime or their children’s lifetimes.

But to come with hatred in your hearts for our leaders and the American people? To break our laws to get here, waving the flags of your countries of origin, shouting hateful messages to the President and the people? That’s difficult for all people everywhere to understand.

Your emotional state is not an acceptable excuse. How long will you be giving that excuse as you continue on a crime spree in order to be free? How long do you think Americans will accept that?

You ask a lot and you give nothing in return – whatever you make you spend in another country, so how do you contribute to the American economy? How do you contribute to its culture when you have to live outside the law?

How many legal immigrants assimilate into American culture?

Sure our leaders and people aren’t perfect – not even close – but look where we are and where you are and tell me that all you ever cared about was the personality of leaders and the people they lead. Because once you take the personality away from the leaders and those they lead, you’ve got a bunch of tough, strong-willed intelligent people who know when to say no, when to say yes and when to find a compromise or a new solution altogether to make and keep their country great and safe.

You don’t like the leaders nor the people in your own countries, and instead of trying to work to change what you have, you go to another country and continue the hatred for leaders and the people they lead there. So what’s the purpose? Can’t you see why people call you gold-diggers? You’re coming for gold, not to share an experience of living in the greatest nation on earth.

That you don’t want to come here for the purpose of contributing to that end, and getting along with the citizens and their leaders, but only for your own selfish needs, alarms those families who helped build what we now have.

You’re not coming to contribute to its continuing success; you’re coming to exploit it. You’re coming to turn it into the country and its people that you left – a country and its people that you hated enough to leave both behind.

So why with all that hatred, anger and expectations of entitlement before you even breach the border with no plans beyond breaking the law would you think Americans should welcome you with open arms?

All the countries you could have gone to if you really were in imminent danger won’t allow you to exploit them. You knowing this, go to one that you think will.

You do yourselves no favors by insulting the American people and America’s leaders, before you even get here. Whoever is leading you in that effort does not have your best interests in mind. They are exploiting you, just as you seek to exploit America. It’s important to your survival that you understand that.
