Patriotism is ultimately nationalism which is ultimately a form of racism.

A lot of people gave a definition of patriotism but not how they fee. Even though I live in the US and was born and raised here, I am not very partiotic. It's not because I am black, but basically haw this country came to be and how this country, TODAY, treats its people. More people are loosing their jobs, business is going over seas, we're in a stinking war that seems not to be letting up, and people do not treat others the way like they would want to be treated. No im not saying everyone is bad but this country sucks on so many levels but also good on other. My husband is white, patriotic, and a US army soldier currently in Iraq. So no, but I wasn't that patriotic before I met him.
