I’m white. I’m male. I speak English. I’m straight. I was baptized Protestant. I’m a natural born US citizen. I love my country. Being American is a bag of mixed feelings. I’m defined by who I am just as any minority. America is special to me because there’s a certain mindset here that we always need to achieve higher standards, we always have to out do each other. I beloved immigrants to here are people who share our mindset. 3 of my four grandparents are immigrants from poor backgrounds in Canada and they struggled to assimilate and learn the English language (they were from Quebec). I feel as if nowadays immigrants have a better opportunity to have and celebrate their ethnicity, as a white person we are only defined as being white which makes me struggle with my ethnic background. I believe in immigration reform and wish that there will be a day where those who immigrate here will be able to do so in a legal fashion so as to be recognized properly. I think America has quite it’s share of faults and has a cultural and ethnic problem that not all countries face but I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.
