35. What's the common American identity?

I have a feeling the Texas GOP thinks Americans are white Christians and everyone else must be from some other country and faith.

Even here in Washington DC I've had people tell me to my face that being a US citizen born in America to US citizen parents doesn't make me any less of an immigrant. So I can't imagine how much worse it would be in a place like Texas where they don't want brown people to vote.

But the attention to the transgender laws have already led to an increase in masculine women getting harassed or beaten up.
