Why are people so insistent on being proud of where they are from?
You’re not “representing your city.” You’re just a person who happens to be from there. Unless you’ve done a tremendous amount of work improving the lives of all the people in your hometown than you are really more a product of your environment than a representative of it. What if a city doesn’t want to be represented by you? What if other people don’t want to be identified as part of your stated identity?
And what are you really saying anyway? My city is the best and I am a representative of my city and therefore I am the best? What are you even talking about? Why do we let people talk like this? Why don’t we roll up newspapers and smash people across the face for this kind of nonsense?
Stop thinking of new cloaked ways of telling people how much you love yourself and maybe just do something useful once in a while.
Or just go “rep your hometown,” you stupid idiot. You’re waving a flag that would burn itself if it found itself in your hands.
I am full of rage.
