Vindictively American

"Personally, I am too vindictively American, too full of hate for the hateful aspects of this country, and too possessed by the things I love here to be too long away.”
-Ralph Ellison

The above quote is from a 1958 letter to Time Magazine, written by Ralph Ellison, author of the novel Invisible Man. I found it quoted in Sarah Vowell’s wonderful book Take the Cannoli.
