As someone who identifies as an Austrian-German, I have empathy for Americans when they are spit on. If this were around the 1930s and 40s there would be a lot of anti-German sentiment and I am sure there still is, but it’s not as rampant as when it was deserved.

A lot of American policy deserves bashing these days, but I feel that the criticism affects parts of the population that are progressive and good.

Once again, I think that identifying as a human first is a way to escape group guilt when it comes to a nationality. We can all just agree that humans have good and bad capacities. One can only hope that our good natures triumph over our more base instincts.
