America is still the great experiment
America is still the great experiment know, I know… we’re definitely not doing well right now. We absolutely need to improve in a lot of areas; mainly, immigration, race relations and Healthcare. We definitely have our backs against the wall and for the first time in a long time are the embarrassment of the free world. With all that said, please remember the experiment we’re conducting here.I feel like its pretty easy to sit in Norway or even a big city like London or Paris and throw stones. Yes, you now have liberal immigration policies compared to years past but is it anything near what we’ve done in the past century? Please remember we have 340 million people of all different nationalities, religions, and races.As a sports fan i see Europeans still throwing bananas on the football pitch and harass those different than you. Imagine your own media showing every small incident to the world. Well we do that! Good,bad or indifferent our media broadcasts our actions to the world with no regard of how it reflects on us and I would have it no other way. How many local stories in your town are similar but not picked by the international news? I guess what I’m trying to convey is.. we are a nation of tolerance. If you have never tried what we’ve done I don’t fully appreciate your criticism. We have a long way to go but please understand every single dark moment we’ve had has been corrected and addressed( although not always timely) I have faith we will correct course and I hope we can reclaim our place as leaders of the free world some day. BTW. I genuinely appreciate what the world thinks of us. This is not a middle finger. This is merely a citizen saying we have failed and must do better going forward. But also saying we will! God bless, cheers!
