Is this something you guys notice or see in your countries also?
People who hate their own country, thats 1st world problems. How often do you see the Mexicans for example bash their own country ? And Mexico has a $hitload of social problems, yet despite this you never hear any Mexicans say a single negative thing about their country.

Then apparently you haven't talked to too many Mexicans. Either way, I'm not talking about people who criticize their country.

I'm talking about people like this Best non-White majority countries for Blacks to live?

I don't know how to hate something that is not a person, animal and/or a poor internet connection.

Sometimes one hates not persons directly, but what they bring about, for instance a certain mentality, certain rituals or views, religions, etc.

I live in California, so I am constantly surrounded by Mexicans and they are always screaming from the roof tops about how Mexico is the best country in the world viva la Raza nobody can compare to us because we produce the best music in the world, we produce the best looking women in the world, we produce the best food in the world, etc.

Mexicans are pretty cocky about their patriotism for a country that is not a superpower like China and The U.S.

Every Mexican I have met raves on and on about how extremely awesome Mexico is. They never bring up the high crime rate in Mexico or anything else negative about Mexico.

There's a huge difference between someone who comes from Mexico and someone who is born here into a Mexican family. I'm not saying you're wrong, but at the same time.. many people who actually lived in Mexico will usually be willing to share the negative sides. Typically the ones waving the flag and talking about "Mexican pride" are Chicanos, Mexicans born in the United States.
