Are You Ashamed Of Certain Parts Of Your Country?

I sure am. Here are the three parts of the U.S I'm most ashamed of:

1) Puerto Rico. That place is where I've found categorically the WORST drivers I've ever driven among. They tailgate, they drive in the rain without lights, and the sheer number of cars with dents in them reveals a very low level of automotive skill.

Poor driving skill only keys into further indictments of Puerto Rico as a part of the U.S. I've noticed that they seem ungrateful for the disproportionate benefits they take from being part of the U.S. They castigate the government for bombing Vieques but refuse to become fully a state and bound by federal taxation, etc. Their women have a habit of growing their fingernails to the point at which no useful work (outside of bed) can be accomplished. To that end, they breed at TREMENDOUS rates, burdening their own (and the rest of the U.S') welfare system and creating a demographic majority that forces the rest of us to follow what they do.

2) California. This state is SO big that every Presidential Candidate has to basically go over there and perform fellatio, ignoring the rest of the U.S and smaller states. The state is home to Lefties like John Walker and Berkeley. It's home to Hollywood, the most insubstantial and useless part of the U.S where style and superficialness is everything and substance means very little.

3) Vermont and Connecticut These states are filled with people who exist in a little self-satisfied world, unwilling to change or achieve substance to their economies. Vermont seems to pride itself on "cuteness" - i.e, preventing meaningful industry and commerce from ever taking root in the state and damning it to a single path of attracting WASPy tourists from places like Connecticutt. Look at the Communist zoning laws (no houses on ridgelines, no Non-Victorian architecture) and obscene taxation that occurs in Vermont and you'll see a poseur, a People's Republic where only one form of organization - the small village - is allowed to exist.

Connecticut is damned in my book for basically trumpeting the fact that they're the richest state in the U.S (finally New Jersey took that away from them) and failing to note that they're the richest state because rich people live there and commute to New York, not because any money is generated there. Everyone I know from Connecticut speaks with a sort of self-satisfied accent as if they have some sort of superiority over everyone else. Everyone from Connecticutt has family that came on the Mayflower. They pretend they have a status that they don't have. I would like to say that the emperor is naked. Connecticut is a money slurper with towns like Greenwich taking the money from other places with industry and commerce and spending it on their useless rich boy lifestyles.

Of course I'm ashamed of certain parts of the US, as anyone should be ashamed of certain parts of their country.

The parts I'm ashamed of are the run-down & crime-ridden areas, and those places where development has either been foolishly undertaken or, not undertaken where it should have been.

It's simply stupid to condemn an entire state or geographical region...that shows a lack of proper thought towards the matter.

I'm ashamed of certain parts of my own city, Toronto where gangs have gone out of control and the police do little about them. I also feel depressed that there are so many homeless people on the streets.

I'm ashamed of the right-wing bigots in the west who think they are smarter than the rest of the country just because they are lucky enough to have oil exports to pad their budgets.

Many Canadians are ashamed of Newfies...but I love them personally...they have a great sense of humour...as do Quebecers.

I agree with Tvlr.
I am also most ashamed of the Deep South where they insist on holding on to an 18th Century way of thinking. There are many parts of the south that is "foolishly undertaken or, not undertaken where it should have been."
Texas and Utah are a bit of an embarrassment too.

As far as the Presidential elections, we haven't had a real race since 1988. GOP candidates no longer waste there money here anymore because they are guaranteed an asswippin' at the polls.

Um, I don't believe I was the one pulling the race card there. Or calling names. Ok, called the kid a terrorist, but if you fly a plane into a building, mimicking terrorists, I DO consider you a terrorist.

Why should the South (to take one example) be viewed as an embarrasment? Are we basing this on ingrained stereotypes or facts here people?

Definitely those areas that are defined as slums and/or ghettos. Living in Cleveland, I have seen many of these. But the ones in Cleveland aren't what really put me on edge... the "ghettos" here, although rundown, poor, and mostly minority-based, (i.e. fitting the stereotype of a slum or ghetto), are among the safest such areas in the nation. It's high crime, violent areas in general that worry me... the ones found in L.A., D.C., Chicago, Atlanta, and to a lesser extent, in Cleveland.

Having spent a month in Germany over the summer (in the Munich vicinity studying abroad actually), I wondered why the US can't be more like Germany. The city of Munich has hardly a slum, and it seems everybody had money to feed and shelter their families. Of course, as a friend of mine there explained, unemployment packages are very generous - so generous that many Germans find it easier to be unemployed than to seek work!!! In addition, Munich is the richest city in Germany, and one of the top five richest in Europe. Now Berlin has quite a few slum areas (at least relatively).

FlyBoeing I agree with you on Conneticut and Vermont. Living in Brooklyn you see the difference. The saying is once you get past Poughkeepsie and you go farther north towards Albany then that's were it gets like Vermont and Connecticut. Many people of the 5 boroughs are down to earth (except for the rich snobs in Park Ave) and those from an area in NJ called Morris County NJ. My parents live there and the people are down right snobby esp in the rich towns. There are a few working class towns that do have a good majority of Puerto Ricans that do act like that but the ones I mostly met are nice and do care about the US and DO want to blend in.

I agree with you about the Berkly Liberals out in California. Just look how messed up certain areas in SFO is due to their ilk. LA ain't no better and both cities are getting high in crime and SFO is getting polluted like LA. With LA all you have to do is look at it from Mt Baldy and you can see smog all around the city. And I though the smog in Midtown was bad.

But is Puerto Rico really that bad? I did go there once and did see a few of those problems but Fly Boeing is it really that bad?

Ryanb741

Are you insinuating that

a) London and Southern England has no race problems?
b) London and Southern England has no grotty poor people?
c) London and Southern England have no stupid accents?

The biggest problem Britain has in the mentality that London is the only place which is worthy of having money, events, modern buildings, etc. put there. For example, the BBC's trailer on sport that they are to cover this year lasts about 2 minutes but there is NO mention of the Commonwealth Games. For heaven's sake, this is the 3rd or 4th biggest sporting event in the world and the BBC is the host broadcaster. Are they ashamed to publicise it?

I would suggest that you, the BBC and Southerners in general try to get past Watford Gap and see what's on offer up here!

David/MAN: 197 and counting to an event the BBC doesn't think is worth mentioning

I'm ashamed of southern California. Hollywood and Orange County, to be specific. Everyone is only concerned with themselves.
HOLLYWOOD: In my opinion it is HELL ON EARTH. Its only MY OPINION, so dont lash out at me. This is the place for idiots and posers. Almost everyone is full of Sh*t and hardly any brains. I really do not understand why people dream of this place. If your not rich and pretty, nobody likes you. Everyone thinks they know everything too.


ORANGE COUNTY: The landscape my look nice, but thats it! Residents are extremely rude and cocky for reasons I don't understand. Its full of mindless idiots. Here is what I mean: It woundn't occur to most people to realize that there is a world outside their own. They only think about themselves and believe what they are told. The teens are extremely unintelligent. The average O.C. resident wouldn't be able to discuss international matters, because they're only concerned with their houses, minivans, and bank accounts.

The idea of having an open mind doesn't exist. If you want to be cool, then lower your Honda Civic, listen to Jay-Z or Linkin Park, go clubbing, wear your little backstreet boy haircut with pride, and follow every other trend out there.

----this is just my personal opinion. if you dont agree with me, thats fine, but there's no use in starting an argument because everyone is entitled to their own opinion.------

However, parts of my country I'm ashamed of;

Burnley, Bradford and Oldham - packed with Nazi scum.
Blackpool - the UK's biggest tourist attraction, how embarrassing!
London - for being arrogant, capital or not!

Parts of my country I'm proud of;

Lake District,
Peak District,
