Yes, I am. Especially since I live in the southeast. Pretty much the most stereotypical, and racist region in America.

Yes, I know racism is everywhere, but it is worse down here.

Americans really have nothing to be embarrassed (I assume that's what you mean) about.

I'm neither proud nor embarrassed, it's just a country. But, like that other guy said, I'm definitely embarrassed to be a human being.

How ironic. I live in Atlanta. But in the past places I've lived, racism is terrible.

The thing is, black people hate me. White people are the only ones to talk to me now. Maybe it's the Atlanta love I get down here. It's more calm and less tension than in Alabama. :?

Alabama isn't as racist as everyone says it is. My grandparents live there, and there are plenty of both African Americans and other random races that get along fine.

Nope because I'm Australian. But I don't think anyone should be embarassed about being from anywhere. You don't decide where you are born. Even if you did, it is the actions of the country's people or government not being from the country that you should be ashamed of.

Hm, I lived there. It depends on the area though. From central Alabama down it's high tension.

No rarely, and only once in my 35 years have I been. While I may not always agree with my government and their actions, I still have the right to march anywhere in public and voice those disagreements. If I am embarrassed about anything in the US it's the utter lack of/death of the fourth estate.

My small town was quite racist. We don't eat fast food because my family always had people, um, do bad things to the food.

I'm embarrassed to be human sometimes but not American. Other countries have the same probs we do, it's just not made aware to the rest of the world like America is. We got problems and aren't afraid to put them out there.

Embarrassed to be an American? Never. You don't have to look deep to find skeletons in the closet of any country in the world. It's just when those skeletons got in the closet the varies.
