|America! Is this a great country or what?|
We are a mean-spirited, heartless people. Of course, there are millions of exceptions, but in the main, in the aggregate, we are a small-minded nation of bigots. There's no escaping this judgment. Our bloody history stands in judgment of us. Slaughter of the Native Americans, the Know-Nothings, the Klan, our chronic anti-immigrant posture against . . . well, you name it: Chinese, Mexicans, Italians, Catholics, Jews, Irish, Vietnamese, and on and on.
Read the sign, people. This is who we are.
