• To me the word American doesn’t mean just one thing, it means someone from the US, Mexico Canada, central America, and south America. Some people will call undocumented immigrants not american but this is

    • Noah, what an interesting definition of America. People so often forget that the word America can be used to describe anyone on the two American continents. You made it clear that you believe in the diversity of not just one country but of everyone in North and South America. Even though we seemed divided at times, we all fall under the same roof of being American. You also do a good job of describing the polar opposites of America.

    • Dear Noah
      I agree with your comment that America is not just the United States it is also other countries like Mexico and Brazil. I think we should all work as a continent and not be isolated. We should do what the European Union does and make a America Union with both North and South America. This would be good because everyone who participate can benefit. Also i agree if you are born here you are American. No matter if you speak a different language or associate with people from a different ethnicity than American you still are American if you are born here. I advise you to check out my website i talk a lot about Immigration. https://wordpress.com/stats/day/22chichad95.wordpress.com

    • Noah, I admired your definition of ‘American’ because most Americans tend to only focus on themselves, but forget that there are so many people immigrants or not are American as well. Being a Latina I identify myself American. Being American should mean that you have the freedom to believe, speak, etc whatever defines you. But there is huge part in the United States culture that doesn’t know the actual meaning of freedom.
      I found this article in which people express their opinions of what ‘American’ means, it supports our ideas. https://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/20/us/what-does-it-mean-to-be-american.html#commentsContainer

    • Hey Noah! I agree with what you are saying. I like your definition of America because not many people realize that American are all different. There are so many ways to describe an American and I think that your definition is pretty good. Here is an article that I think you may like.
