We have made mistakes as a country, but have also rectified those more so than any other country in the world. If America is so oppressive, then why do so many people from around this he world want to get here any way they can, risking it all? Because they hold America in higher regard than folks of your ilk do. This is the greatest country ever assembled in the history of the world, hands down, no contest. No one culrure should b set aside above any other, it’s funny which cultures get their own month, almost like someone has an agenda.
Second of all, anyone who makes insane statements like "This is the greatest country ever assembled in the history of the world, hands down, no contest" has absolutely no concept of human history. We have been one of the greatest countries in the world AT TIMES, and there are proud moments in our history, but we are not now the greatest in the world at much of anything. That's measurable data, not opinion. You know they actually have statistics that rank countries based on just about any metric you can imagine, and outside of military spending America isn't doing so hot these days.
Thirdly, you don't seem to have a very wide world view, so let me tell you something that isn't really a secret. Most of the world sees America as a laughing stock. We are the butt of the joke. The only people trying to get here however they can are the people fleeing massive poverty, violence, hunger, and war. For them, America is a major step up.
Last of all, are you....are you trying to say that America DOESN'T have a history of oppressing minorities? Seriously? Yeah, we are better than we were 50 or 100 years ago, so hurray for improvement, but that doesn't mean that generations of minorities didn't face incredible levels of oppression and racism.
You're proving my point that there are too many people who just can't stand for someone else to be able to celebrate something that they can't relate to. JUST LET THEM DO THEIR THING! IF NOTHING ELSE IT IS MORE EXCUSES TO HAVE GOOD FOOD AND PARTY!
