People say that they feel awkward nowadays saying things like "I'm proud to British" . They say that it can often drag out bad connotations. . People claim that it has such connotations because it gets associated with "the wrong kind of person”. Perhaps this is because saying such a thing is unnecessary in the first place. Perhaps this is so, because the "wrong kind of person" has nothing else to fight about. But they fight with this anyway. Fight, fight, fight.
