I agree with many of your points Steve, I think context and intent play a role here. When I'm asked "where are you from", when I’m at work for example, the reasons aren't always genuine. I've been told by patients, they'd rather see an American Doctor, you get the idea. I'm not a fan of labels; when traveling inside, or outside the US, and someone asks “where I'm from.” The answer is always Detroit or America, never anything other than that. So it's a shame when people in the country I identify with most question me on my nationality. Thank you for reading and for your feedback.
