"the US is unreal like girls cant wear shorts to school, you can literally lose your job for being gay, and unarmed black children are brutally murdered on the regular but old white ppl r still like 'what a beautiful country. i can freely carry a gun for no reason and some of our mountains look like presidents. god bless.'"

The hostile responses actually illustrate that quote perfectly.
I spent part of my childhood in the US and it was one of the happiest time of my life. But even though I grew to love America as a kid, we were living in the very cosmopolitan academic community of Yale, so I only saw ever saw the very best aspects of America, if you know what I mean.
Even now I still remember the pledge of allegiance and my heart beats faster when I see the Stars and Stripes, so perhaps that kind of attitude is the result of all the intense patriotism kids absorb at school.
No other country does patriotism anywhere near as well.
At university one of my majors was American politics and it saddens me to see how money and unfettered greed has corrupted democracy and perverted a dynamic economy.
Sadly the U.S. is now swamped by crazy people trying to rewrite history, distort the Constitution and transform a great nation into some redneck Christian Taliban paradise, inundated with bogus propaganda about how it was founded as a Christian nation.
Wrong! The founding fathers always intended America to be the Republic of Liberty, free from tyranny and religious dogma. Ever heard of the Jefferson Bible?
The saddest part is that so many Americans are genuinely ignorant of the glorious history of the Republic and the reasons for its foundation, so they believe all the lies.

Then exercise your rights given by this horrible country and leave

And you are believing all that.
private school can decide what they can or canot wear.
unarmed White kids are getting killed by black cop, but you don't hear about it, because there is no political benefit.

Same day michael brown got killed, there are 7 black kid got killed by other black kids, 29 wounded, you don't hear abotu that.
