Whether it be where you live in your particular town?
Whether it be your family?
Whether it be your nationality?

I'm not ashamed of where I come from, or who I am. Sometimes I feel ashamed of my family and how they act/react to certain things, but ultimately it's not genuine shame. I know they were raised the way they were and my disagreeing with some of the things they do shouldn't result in shame.

Not at all, I'm happy where I am. At times I have the opposite, sometimes I wish I was born in a different location like Central Africa (around Tanzania, Kenya, or South Sudan) just so I could speak Swahili natively instead of trying to learn it, same with Japan and Korea Republic (so I could speak Japanese or Korean natively, instead of having to learn it)

Whether it be where you live in your particular town? - May not like Los Angeles weather (where I'm originally from) happy to live in Seattle
Whether it be your family? - Mexican family is great, grandma is teaching me how to cook family foods - beign bilingual is great too, helps a lot (I speak both English and Spanish)
Whether it be your nationality? - I have not giving much thought on this

No Im not ashamed of my nationlaity, family or anything. Why should I be, I can't help where I was born of who my family is. Sometimes I wsh my family didnt act so weird but I can't change that, and that's a whole different story.

Nope. I'm proud to be me. If I ever feel that way because of a particularly person or group of people, then I know I shouldn't have those types of people in my life.

Noope! I was born in Russia and wouldn't want to change that part of myself. Would have liked to not move to New York, but it's not something I'd say I'm ashamed of.

I'm not ashamed of who I am or where I came from. I used to be ashamed of the fact that I came from an extremely messed family situation, but I've realized that I was extremely fortunate to be raised by my grandparents no matter how uber strict they were.

I'm going to pull out the self-racism card and actually say yes: there are times when I read the news, and I'm ashamed to be Chinese because of what some Chinese people do for convenience or profit. In a sense, it's hard for that not to happen as there's bound to be some bad apples in any group of people, and when there's so many Chinese in the world, it'll seem like there are tons of them bad apples... but really, when there's news of fellow Chinese decided to open the window in a bus and pee into the road during a traffic jam, it makes me really wonder... >_>;

I'm not ashamed with my nationality or in terms of family. However, I am ashamed of where I was born and raised... because of super high crime rates and stuff. I was born and raised in East New York, Brooklyn, but in the toughest areas of ENY.

Honestly? A little bit, but it doesn't stem from my country of origin or anything similiar, but rather my not-so-distant relatives, mostly on my biological father's side of the family tree. It's riddled with people that have made some terrible decisions in their lives and have done less than learn from them, if done anything at all besides repeat them. They are an unsuccessful, disappointing group of people. I hate to insult them like that, but I truly am not proud of that side of my family.

I'm proud of where I come from, mainly because it's not the country which I live in so it's kinda interesting I guess? And I just like where I come from a lot anyway and hope to go back there some day. So no, in that sense.

As for family... I don't think 'ashamed' would be the right word. But I definitely come from a less-than-ideal family with background which I prefer people don't know about. There's stuff which I'd just rather forget than accept, I suppose. That's probably not a particularly healthy way to go about it but meh. Not shame, just... unfortunate.

I "come from" (i.e. was born in) a place where I only lived for two years so I don't really care one way or the other about it. I do feel embarrassed for being from South Jersey though, everyone at my school that's from my state is from the rich, fancy northern half and it just sucks in lots of ways.

I'm only ashamed of my hometown, because it has one of the worst unemployment rates in the U.S. and suffers from air pollution, making asthma more common. Makes me wish I was born in San Diego or Anehiem.

The only thing I'm "ashamed" of is that my county has the highest euthanasia rates for stray and unfound or forgotten animals in like all of California or something like that :s

Other than that one thing which isn't even directly tied to me or in anyway my fault, I'm ashamed of nothing.

What Pinkie said, since we both live in the same area.

Not only that, it's a town no one has ever heard of. I go to San Diego or Yuma or other big city and I tell them "Oh, I'm from <there>" and they'll be like "What? Never even heard of that place, must be from another planet or something."

I was born in Mexico, I don't feel ashamed about that because all of my family was born there as well. Speaking of my family, everyone fights a lot, so the only days we don't fight is during holidays.

Asking if I like living in England is the equivalent of asking a Goomba whether he likes being in Mario.

Me:
Yes, I like living in England, but there are flaws, quite a few, such as the people.

Goomba:
Yes, I like being in Mario, but there are flaws, quite a few, people try to jump on me.

I like being from California, more even for being born in San Francisco and always living near to that city. Being American in general though is a mixed bag which is why I think of myself as a Californian first and an American second.

I am kinda ashamed of my family though.

I hate being from a small town in the northeastern United States, so much so that if people ask where I'm from I tell them <name of old college dorm>, born and raised, in the student union is where I spent most of my days (in Fresh Prince style, of course xD)

Ashamed of my family? Not really since they don't really have any reputation around our parts. I will say that I wished I had more affluent upbringings.

My nationality? I'm Korean, so it's hard to say. On the one hand, there's Gangnam Style, On the other hand, there's piece of junk cars like Kias and Hyundais. So on that front it's really a mixed bag for me.

I am slightly ashamed of the fact that I live in the U.S. mostly because of the stupid people that live here. We have a lot of ghetto trashy idiots who use up our tax money by sitting there making babies all day and have no way to pay for them. That's why I'm ashamed.

I am very ashamed of the city I come from, La Verne, because it isn't really a city, more like a town, and is very religious as a whole. I'm a minority here, and I disagree with lots of people here. They hold their heads too high..

I'm not really ashamed of my family, they're respectable people and have good intentions. I dislike the fact that grades are such a high priority, though.

I am DEFINITELY NOT ashamed of California. It's a pretty cool state, fulla sunshine an' stuff. Nice people overall, but it has downsides too. In total, CA's not too bad.

I wouldn't say "ashamed", but I'm certainly not proud to be Australian. I hate patriotism and Australians have it in spades, and that has always bugged me. The "Aussie" culture has always bugged me with its self-importance and it kind of makes me a self-hating Australian lol

Some people would, but I'm not "ashamed" of where I was born. It's pretty rough in some parts of that city; someone pulled a gun on my father and threatened to kill him less than 2 miles from the building I was born in. T: Despite that, I like it there.

My family...not really. Yeah, they aren't the best people. But they're still my family. Actually, one specific uncle I guess I am.

My nationalities have stereotypes which I find to be annoying. I'm a bit of a mutt, though, so I don't know everything that I am.

Ain't nothing to be embarrassed from being born in LA, baby!

Jokes aside, I'm pretty content with my family. I'm mostly Norwegian, and Irish, with some Greek thrown in there too. Family are great too. Whee.

I wouldn't say I'm ashamed to be a Californian, but right now I'm somewhat ashamed to be an American.

It seems like we've done so much to sully our reputation with the world that I feel like I'm a monster for even being born here. Like I'm an uneducated, uncultured, speck of trash. At least that's what I feel like whenever someone bashes the United States, whether it's true or not.

At the rate that America is disintegrating, we're no longer the great nation we used to be. We're stereotyped as lazy, unintelligent, materialistic morons that only care about their smart phones and technology. I'm very ashamed to be an American, and I hope to become a citizen of Canada in the near future. American is not a country - it's a corporation.
