I’ve known a number of “American’s” who weren’t ‘native’ born.
Most avoided the hyphenated-American title like the plague.
It’s the ‘hyphenated-natives’ who associate themselves with a place they’ve never seen, experienced or have any concept of the place, that ruin it for most.
I could get into stereotypes and other examples lately, but I won’t .
I will just say, you’re either an American or you’re not.
We’re proud to have you as one Freedom.
