Can you be a nationalist without being called a racist in 2020?

Update:

@mark.  Really? Thats so ignorant.... so putting your country first is racist? I really don't understand your logic

    You can be called all kinds of names by the left but that does not make it true.

    Sure, you can be in favour of Scottish, Breton, Catalan, Basque, Hawaiian and Kurdish independence without being a racist.

    Putting "your country" before human rights, peace on earth and life on the planet is not nationalist, but fascist

    No matter what some people will call you a racist. Why even worry about it?

    In theory, yes.  But in practise, nationalists are almost always racists, too.  A real nationalist would have a philosophy like this:  "every citizen in my country is better than anyone else".  A racist would say "only X people are REAL citizens of my country; the rest aren't, even though they were born here."  Which category do you fall into (like I have to even ask)?

    Edit:  The "thumbs down" speaks rather eloquently, don't they?
