While I would not like to speak for everyone, I think it is safe to generally say that it can be hard to love yourself in America if you identify as any sort of minority or marginalized person. While it’s always going to be hard to identify as an “other” there are some things that can make it better.
America, you and I have had a rocky relationship.
I have idealized you for my entire life. I was always told, ever since I was little, that you were the land of hope, the land of freedom and justice and endless possibility.
