What, Then, is an American Individual?


Where did all of these people come from?  They are Native Americans, Pan-Europeans, Africans, Asian, Oceanic, Latino, Transgender, Lesbians, Homosexual, and Heterosexual. What, then, is an American individual?  He or she is  a  mixture of ethnic and social diversity, which you will find in no other country.  Americans were once scattered all over the globe; now here they are assembled into one region of the world struggling to coexist under one set of principles.

All Americans are directed to comply with ethics defined by previous generations. However, it seldom happens this way.   Instead, Americans hold on to their ancient prejudices and behaviors until they are pressurized to evolve their reasoning.  They are perpetually battling with one another to control  the country’s political and social metamorphosis.

Some call for change to the status quo while others synchronously refuse to accept alterations to any existing conditions. It is a trial of strength and perseverance of whose policies and ideas will control the country’s direction.  The winner will either repress the country’s growth or propel Americans into a new era.

Ultimately, Americans are unforeseeable.

Inspired by J. Hector St. John de Crevecoeur, Letters from an American Farmer.
