BLEED AMERICAN // an Eli Bradley mix, the Patriot

Sometimes… Sometimes it’s really hard not to hate this country. Hell, sometimes it’s really hard not to just hate everyone in the whole world, actually. And sometimes, it’s hard not to hate yourself, too. … It’s because of my grandfather that I became a Young Avenger. But it’s hard sometimes, to be a black kid carrying a name like “Patriot.” I remember talking to Captain American about that before he died and he explained what patriotism meant to him and holding it accountable when it failed. I remember he said: ‘It wasn’t about blindly supporting your government. It was about knowing what your country could be, what it should be… and trying to lead it there through your example.’ (Young Avengers presents Patriot, Marvel, 1/6)
