‘Homo-Sovereign’ Boston homestays: Why you can’t live anywhere else
A new book is out that shows that people who are born in the U.S. and who are considered American have no right to live anywhere other than in the United States.
It’s called “Americanism: The Cultural Imperative and the Politics of Identity” and it’s the latest chapter in the debate about American identity.
In the book, American author John McWhorter, a former Republican congressman from Pennsylvania, traces the history of the term “American” back to 1789 and traces the way in which the country was divided along racial lines.
In the 1850s, McWhorters father was an American and his mother was of British descent.
It was the American people who, in the 1850-1918 period, had made the nation great, he writes.
McWhorter writes that Americanism is the cultural ideology that makes Americans who are white or African American or Asian, heterosexual or homosexual, able to live and work anywhere.
“The concept of ‘American’ is not a natural one.
Its a construct,” McWhortsses book reads.
“America is a country of the past.”
McWhorts book is part of a new wave of research that has been focused on the “American identity” and how it has shaped the lives of people around the world.
McWhorters book was written about the period between World War II and the 1960s, and it takes the same arguments to show that American identity is not about nationality, but about a specific set of beliefs and practices.
Mcwhorter argues that the “Americans” who are being excluded are not just people born in a different country, but also people born to white families who are of British and Scottish ancestry.
And they’re also not just Americans who identify with the white culture.
They are American, in other words, in their sense of being, in a sense of the word “American.”
Mcwhorters book also shows how Americans have been marginalized and left behind in the world by the policies of the U
