Thank you for submitting to /r/unpopularopinion, /u/abicteria. Your post, *The US is overrated and is definitely not about freedom*, has been removed because it violates our rules: Rule 1: Your post must be an unpopular opinion. Please ensure that your post is an opinion and that it is unpopular. Controversial is not necessarily unpopular, for example all of politics is controversial even though almost half of the US agrees with any given major position on an issue. Keep in mind that an opinion is not: a question, a fact, a conspiracy theory, a random thought, a new idea, a rant, etc. Those things all have their own subreddits, use those. If there is an issue, please message the mod team at https://www.reddit.com/message/compose?to=%2Fr%2Funpopularopinion Thanks!

I’m a black man and have experienced racism early on in America. It’s a racist capitalist shit hole, but it’s my racialist capitalist shit hole. So there is no other place I would rather be. And the good news is there is progress compared to 75 years ago. It just takes time. No matter how bad it gets. I’m staying. USA 🇺🇸

Look, America has its fair share of issues without a doubt. I think there is a circlejerk of “hating on America” and people make it seem like it’s a horrible place to live. When it’s really not. It could be a whole hell of a lot worse. Reading about America on social media, Reddit and cable news will certainly warp ones view.

When ya leaving..?

Should have a program where US citizens can freely trade places with someone from another country. Grass is always greener.


Gremlin95x

Weird how the “racist” police don’t target law abiding citizens. How strange…


abicteria

Really now? Haha


nightmaresarereal187

I’m talking about in history. Let’s not act like police have and black folks have had the best relationship with the police.

Ever watched something other than fox or brietbart?

Go ahead, complain to the UN, they can't un-crime the war.


yaymuney

This is definitely the greatest country on the earth, as far as choice and opportunity, it just has a fucked up history that mfs want to forget about so bad. But other countries are worse. 🤐


chrisonauts

Okay bro go live in Venezuela then let me know how that works out.


AlterNk

Ah, yes, the country that is dying because of the usa is a good example of how good the usa is...


chrisonauts

How so? Since you have a degree in political science from UCLA most likely.


abicteria

Bro I’m from a third world country and I know both my country and the US perfectly well enough. And please don’t use Venezuela as an excuse as most people from first world countries do.

Have you even been to America or is this opinion based on what you see on the internet? Because its dumb as fuck. Millions of people flock to America for the opportunity of a good life if they work hard. Millions of immigrants live happy lives here.


i-fing-love-games

and some end up homeless


Broad_Finance_6959

Thats not unique to America, it's a reality across the globe, this world isn't a perfect utopia.


rslashidiot2

The homeless in America still have iPhones lmao


i-fing-love-games

how do you know have you asked every one of them


rslashidiot2

Have you?


i-fing-love-games

ofc


chrisonauts

If you don't like the united States don't come here or complain about it then. No one is putting a gun to your head and asking you to worship the US. This is just typical woke liberal modern day behavior. Police are racist? Well if you break the law in the first place then you will be under arrest obviously. All these "racist police" you see on CNN and Instagram are stories that are twisted. Remember every story has 2 sides.


i-fing-love-games

if u think police is only racist go watch donut operator he debunks those cases where police is racist (not to u chrisonauts)

Just FYI, a black man just recently was pulled over for a minor traffic violation that resulted in his death. Why was the police officer pulling him over? In the words of the officer, “because he was sure the driver had a warrant.” Case of mistaken identity and a minor traffic violation resulted in the loss of life. We have to understand minorities are incarcerated two times the rate of their white counterparts. And they represent 50% of the population in the prison system while only representing only 15% of the population. Something is not right there. Just a little food for thought


chrisonauts

Before this can be taken any further there has to be some sort of evidence on a body cam. Also before any liberals skin me alive my family immigrated from Peru sooo I know a thing or two about minorities.


Namez83

I’m half Mexican myself. There is audio of the cop calling in and saying that. Made it into the blotter


aquabarron

What country?


CheckYourCorners

And live under US sanctions? You're not making a good case.

chrisonauts

People hate this place but continue to reside here oohhhh the irony.


diablollama

Because they are either too lazy to leave or don't have any desirable skills to get immigration :D

This sub is for unpopular opinions not for trolls pretending to be US born when they are.
