    Is this article slated for US release only?? If so, then okay! If not, then no problem as there is nothing new in this as this racism is very common that “There is nothing beyond The Great United States so the world starts with United States and ends with United States”. Oh sorry, this isn’t racism, this is a ‘majority opinion’ na! >:(
