“Of all the nations in the world, the United States was built in nobody’s image. It was the land of the unexpected, of unbounded hope, of ideals, of quest for an unknown perfection. It is all the more unfitting that we should offer ourselves in images. And all the more fitting that the images which we make wittingly or unwittingly to sell America to the world should come back to haunt and curse us.”
In America’s racially complex system, there isn’t much talk about race, or what does really define the race of a person. Other than judging by the phenotype of an individual, Americans categorize themselves based on their looks, rather than their genetic make up.
America, a country built on foreign immigration and assimilation between different races encountered in every corner of the orb, was susceptible to practice interracial like in no other emplacement.
The United States of America itself is a race-less country.
A Melting Pot of people, where modern day Americans don’t belong to a particular racial group, but to a segment of multiracial people with no particular identity or assortment.
This being said, Americans are product of miscegenation between different races, through it’s course of fabric. A country built on interracial procreation, when in all fairness it’s only adequate to assert that Americans are part of a new race. The Mongrel race.
As Geoffrey C. Ward put it, an historian and documentary filmmaker, who wrote the article entitled “Mongrel Nation” published in Smithsonian Magazine in November 2001, shortly after the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, D.C. Ward wrote: “We (Americans) are a mongrel people, and at our best, we glory in it.” Ward argued that the Civil War was won by a highly diverse Union army that was made up largely of African Americans and immigrants, while the American Revolutionary War was won by a diverse group of ordinary soldiers of virtually every occupation. The society, Ward wrote, was built on “classless equality.
Either White, Black, Brown or Yellow by Phenotype…The Genotype of the Americans has become a bowl of colorful cereals mixed altogether, having slowly absorbed each others’s bloodline into what we came to know today as the declared average American mutt.
Since the colonization of the Americas, during the Cotton Plantation passing through Rodeo times, to the modern days of today…Americans were prone to practice interracial like no other country. And they freely did it, either by professedly will or secrecy.
This fact alone, is presentable on the character of the Americans. And thus, not an excuse to be hidden.
It is a testimonial in American Culture and a token of deposition in American History earnest in movies, music and even pornography, where interracial is celebrated in a National scene of vainglory in America.
No other country in the world has practiced and promoted the act of Interracial practice, as Americans did.
No other country or people of the world, did this, but Americans.
As White-Americans kept decreasing in numbers (due to low natality rates and high miscegenation ratio), Blacks propagated themselves growing along side the waves of the newly immense fertilizing Mexicans (or Mestizos) into the country, with other minor minorities alike, brushing the last pure White-Americans.
The American President is perhaps the best example.
Barack Obama the most famous American today, is half White and half Black. He is the face of America. And thus, the face of every American.
It should be noted that, America is the first country in the West to have a ‘colored’ President in the chair.
Up to this day, the United States of America remains the only country in the world where Interracial is a common practice in society, accepting new clarets in the sackcloth, having led (and still leading) the charts in the act of Interracial, as no form of taboo.
Americans themselves are the leaders of interracial procreation.
The “Americanization” (synonymous to Mongrelization) in a collective manner of diversity between differential Ethnic groups has been the quantum to this racial deduction, notably on frontiers, where different groups of people came together.
As Adolf Hitler, dictator of Nazi Germany, put in describing the American race, as a “mongrel race”, that of the result of intermarrying different races, he writes on his book, “Mein Kampf” in 1927, that the ultimate goal of the Jews was the “promiscuous bastardization of other peoples” and the “domination of the racial mishmash ….” As dictator, he forbid marriages between Germans and the races he considered subhuman — Jews and Slavs. Hitler assured his aides that the United States would not be able to conquer Germany because Americans were a mongrel people.
Today, ‘White’-Americans are part of a perpendicular Multi-ethnic breed, having consequently inherited the necessary residual manifold fragmentation of several other races, through integration, in the route of American history.
These ulterior circumstances contributed to the modern day genetic make up and identity of the average White-American.
An amalgamation of races, fused in the frame of America, where the word “Pure” is no way nearby the word “American”.
Famous historical figures, have pointed out and identified the overall Americans, as Mongrels (or Mutts).
