We Americans

We Americans are an interesting lot.

 

We took our philosophy from the Greeks.

We took our myths from the Hebrews.

We took our slaves from Africa.

We took our land from the Native Americans and Mexicans.

 

Our infrastructure was built muchly by immigrant labor.

Our agrarian proceeds were reaped muchly by slave labor.

 

And today many fear being enslaved by immigrant presence.

 

Perhaps the most original thing about we Americans would be our self perceived status as the most superior of all societies.

 
Indeed, we Americans are an interesting lot.
