I find the vast disparity in health outcomes, frankly, terrifying. I think there will be riots in the USA in the not too distant future. I think it’s going to be hard to be young and white in the USA with what I think is on the horizon. The fact they will be attempting to make amends for slavery and Jim Crow, when it’s not their fault, because it’s definitely not seen that way. The fact there are no go areas for certain races and profiles, and that large groups of people think there’s a good chance they will be murdered every time a cop stops them chills my blood.
on the other hand.....
I believe the states has the best educational establishments in the world.
My favorite authors hail from the states. My all time favorite author is Earnest Hemmingway, so....
My favorite musicians. Most of my favourite music: American. Even as a Brit I can say, when it comes to the 20th century, America is a giant, a monolith, in fact, when it comes to almost every genre of music! It was Birthed in the USA.
Much of my favorite dance comes from the states (and I adore dance}.
The standard of living for the average working person is vastly higher than probably anywhere else in the world and the opportunities are immeasurable for the young, energetic and talented!!!
The States has some of the most breathtaking landscapes in the world. And the sheer space....heaven!
The average Americans are some of the friendliest, warmest people I’ve had the good fortune to come across.
Just one thing....er....religion. Cults. Hmmm. Less said the better on that.
