 Americans have a hard time with the truth.

They prefer their myths which present them in a more positive light repressing their darker side.

Without acknowledging their darker side they cannot effectively manage it and are doomed to repeat their racism, xenophobia, and white nationalism which we observe in our current time of Trumpism as the rise of  Nationalism with such inane memes as Make America Great Again.

Systemic racism is alive and well in our current day and age especially in regards to our treatment of Native Americans and people of African heritage whom we enslaved.
