I have much to say,my brain and spirit is evolving, or . The world today is a product of globalization and domination on the behave of greedy and evil individuals.America is the richest byproduct of such a complex.However,America is not necessarily the "land of all that is good" as it is portrayed, despite the fact that the capitalist system provides a certain ladder of oppurtunity for some in a economic sense, and a trap of problems for others in the same sense. America is also a country with no nativity to the land it is based upon,the land that belonged to the Native Americans,African Explorers,and Norweigans that settled here was stolen.In turn, anything that comes out of the stolen product is not genuine,only fabricated to fit a certain agenda or mold of what the unnatural being is.It shows since there is no such language called "American." Considering all of the above statements,who is an "American"? You cannot say that an "American" is someone who speaks English because English comes from ENGLAND(along with any other language).Some may say:"Immigrants come here in hopes to be AMERICANS." And I say:"Those immigrants come here for the oppurtunity that capitalism provides to those who try to work within it while others suffer from it.They are presented that being an American means having oppurtunities but do not realize that if any other country on Earth presented the same images and ideas that America does they would be flocking there also!!!" ]Malcolm X: " Being born in America does not make you an American. Living in America does not make you an American." Considering what Malcolm said above,than what does make you an American? In my opinion,being an American is a state of mind,not a reality.If it was a reality than you would not have a number called "Social Security" tied to you *** so the government can find you no matter were you go.Being an American to me means being in the "I gotta get mine before they get theirs" mindset, it means that you may not have an open view of politics since they government offers you 2 main perspectives (democrat and republican).Being an American means that you must adhere to the label and forget about self definition at all times or be criticized and deported.Being an American is more of being a fictional character than a real one, furthermore,I cannot consider myself such a thing. What is "American " to you?
