The Day I Got My Green Card

Aatish Taseer, a gay South Asian British Muslim immigrant, writes a love letter to the USA, where his now the proud possessor of a green card.

“I was overcome by what must be one of the most unfashionable emotions of our time: boundless, unqualified love for America.”

Hell of an article.  Reread it every Independence Day.

(Is Taseer Muslim? Not sure. Doesn’t matter — having a confusing heritage that requires a PowerPoint presentation to explain is the American Way! Ethnic purity is for the Old World — hybrid vigor ftw!)
