How can a minority (US born citizen) be patriotic?

General U.S. Forum - Relocation, Moving, Local City Discussions - City-Data Forum - www.city-data.com
After the election of trump the issue of race and the white anxiety for almost half the country becomes more apparent to minorites. I as a minority have realized that whites think of me as the outsider and foreigner that does not belong who is taking their country away. I've come to conclude that me and other minorites will never be accepted as part of the national fabric despite honest efforts by many whites to change this. How can a minority, a us citizen born in America, be patriotic toward a nation who will never accept him truly as one of their 'own' I get the feeling that since the whites in this country will not accept me no matter how much I love this country and how American I am and the values I hold that what I look like will always be a scorn on my head. Why would I care about my nation? It doesn't want me, why not just take it for everything it's got, hell with what happens to it. That's the feeling I get. If whites want to ostracize me and other minorites then who cares. Until minorites become the majority, then finally it can belong to an us and then I can start caring. Would you love a man or woman that doesn't love you back?

What is wrong with this kind of thinking? What could be a better way for minorites to feel more part of a nation? What do minorites feel about serving in wars like the Tuskegee airmen who served for a country that hated his kind. How do minorites reconcile the difference?

I'm curious what people have to say, not trying to start a flame war
