Is it normal to be embarrassed of your own nationality?
I am Swedish. I think my country has gone down the drain over the past 10 years due to the mass-immigration from muslim countries. Sweden has become the laughing stock of the world, especially on the internet where there are countless memes ridiculing this country. Due to the mess that has been brought here and the fact that the people living here seem unwilling to sort this shit up, I want to move away from here, but the problem is that I'm afraid of how people in this new country I move to will treat me if they find out my nationality. Will they laugh at me and think I'm a clown, or will they respect me? The thing is that I'm half-finnish and I have a finnish surname. I also happen to look more finnish than swedish, but I don't know a single word from the finnish language. Could I get away by saying that I'm from Finland instead of Sweden?
