I am an immigrant

My tagline is now a single word: immigrant.

I am saddened this is now a political statement, but there it is.

Maybe you think I’m a “good” immigrant because of the color of my skin or my religion or the nationality or citizenship of my parents when I was born. Or maybe it’s the country where I was born. Or maybe how little time I spent in that country. Maybe even because I wasn’t a refugee?

If you’re excusing my immigrant status for any of those reasons, I think you need to ask yourself why.
