    I would say the pledge of allegiance and God bless America with joy I would be a patriot but if I have feeling I'm not embraced as American and it is a tool of white supremacy or nativism I would hesitate and feel uncomfortable for example during a football high school game fans chanted USA USA at hispanic students aren't American hispanics also American?

    It depends. Some Hispanics embrace the USA as their new home, others do not, and are more aligned with their native country and have disdain for the American flag, other American symbols, and culture. You can not paint a broad brush.

    The popular Democrat/Media narrative is to call anyone that is Patriotic a "White Nationalist" which they've made a racist epithet. According to them you are not supposed to respect, and admire your country, nor your fellow citizens. It is more Democrat divisiveness.

    The right thinks that being right wing and being patriotic are the same thing. Of course, they are wrong.

    I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
    Take a bow for the new revolution
    Smile and grin at the change all around
    Pick up my guitar and play
    Just like yesterday

    That holds true everywhere. Right wing patriotism seems to always involve hatred of others. A sense of superiority is generally part of it as well.

    Stop waving the Mexican flag all the time.

    The Mexican Flag is a national symbol. It indicates one's loyalty to another nation.

    It would be like me waiving the German Flag at a U.S. v. Germany soccer game, and demanding that you respect me as an American.

    The OP was talking about a high school football game. Not an international US / German soccer match, dumb ass.
