embarrassed for my kind

What kind of behavior from your own gender, ethnic group, economic class, or any other category makes you cringe and feel embarrassed for your sex/country/sexual orientation/religion, etc.?

1. Embarrassed for my sex is easy, but at the same time difficult because of sheer number of things that make me embarrassed.

2. Country is also easy. W, Neo-Cons, My-Country-Right-Or-Wrong attitude, Anti-intellectualism, Xenophobes and as a cheap shot, the TSA.

3. Profession. My profession is full of embarrassments. It seems I'm following them from job to job, fixing the emotional damage they've done to people. When I start a new job, it's generally pretty difficult to get people to call me when there's a problem. The users always want to try to fix the problem themselves before calling me because the jackhole who came before me belittled them and made them feel stupid for calling them out for such an insignificant problem.
