I am the class apart from the whites.
I am addressed to a diverse place as for who I am,
When there is a connection in procedure,
However, I form chuckles,
rAnd gather up all my perceptions,
And affirm my purpose.
In the future,
I will remain in the place I was discharged,
When the connection proceeds.
There will be no more concern
For the words expressed,
“Eat in the kitchen,” indicating my discharge,
When the time approaches.
To add about,
My resemblance will be noticed as of now,
And remorse will be for whom had not noticed—
That, I as well, am American.
Here in the United States, citizen “Americans” fit in with such name so. However, are they truly the only Americans? The answer is “no.” Being “American” is a term that describes people from the U.S. However, the term of “America” is far more spread out. Since the U.S. doesn’t have an ‘English’ adjective to describe its people, they refer themselves as Americans. But, there’s far more to explore than what is heard of. Let’s take for example, Mexico. Mexico’s people are referred to as Mexicans considering they have an adjective to describe themselves in Spanish. And speaking of the Spanish language, there is a word for ‘Americans’ to be described by. It’s the term “estadounidense/s.” Now, the Spanish language is more brief about the logic of an American. Since they have an adjective to describe a native from every country in the world, they do the same about describing people from their continent. However, the U.S. describes every people from their continent except the Americas. Mexicans, Salvadorans, Colombians, Chileans, Argentines, and many more countries from the Americas are considered to be Americans too. But, the thing is that the U.S. brings the perception of tradition of calling themselves by their continent and refer the rest of the countries of the Americas by describing their people by their country. Nonetheless, this is not the only idea of what it is to be American. This term is also used to express who you are, not what people believe. For example, during the times of segregation, blacks wouldn’t be classified as Americans but more likely by their ancestors from Africa. But, they were still Americans, as they were born in America and they believed they were Americans like the whites. In other words, they thought they should also have freedom like the whites did. Therefore, this brings the question which is, what is “the American life?” In general, there is no American life, but in specification and traditional perception, the American life is a life of many rights and freedom and gargantuan opportunities. Wait, why is there no American life in general? Well, no one can explain the life of a continent that is divided into multiple countries which divide into cities, which then divides into areas with diverse authorities, traditions, & cultures, thoroughly and accurately. In conclusion, “American” and “America” have a huge controversy when it comes to both of these questions.
