We Are America — black, white, brown, gay, straight, bi, old, and young. [Video by Martin De Leon and friends.]

This 1946 educational film from Encyclopædia Brittanica presents a period look at immigration to the New World. “Negroes” are mentioned once, Native Americans are invisible, and Mexicans don’t show up until the very end, but it’s an interesting film pitching the “nation of immigrants” meme. Good public schools are important for the Melting Pot, they note, the quest for freedom brought many persecuted refugees here, Congress started blocking “undesirables” (Asians, Southern and Eastern Europeans) in 1924, and yet there’s the Statue of Liberty who lifts her lamp beside the golden door. History: You’re soaking in it.


Hey, America! You can do anything since you’re a star. Grab US by the P*ssy, please.

Love,

Your friends von Desutschland.

White folks in sombreros and serapes. Spanglish beer commercials every few minutes. Yup, pretty ridiculous, señor. I agree with most of my friend Gustavo Arellano’s Cinco de Mayo video rant, mas o menos. He says it’s ridiculous, only serves some limited purposes as far as educating about the evils of Imperialism, or the promotion of self-determination, […]
