Questions For Analysis
Ricardo Herrera
Everest University
SLS 1505-8

Before reading the article, what was your answer to the question, “Who’s American” ? How did you develop the concept of   being an American? If you or your parents were born in another country, how would you define the national identity of that country (i.e. what does it mean to be or Chinese?)
Before I read this particular article titled, ‘’Who’s American”, I developed many ways such as how much patriotism one has regardless if they were born in America or not.
The concept that national identity both   unite and divide people is by making people a part of   belonging to a certain group or club, thus making them feel like a whole. An example of this would be after the September 11 attacks that America experienced. This had a strong hold on America and making us heal from the pain. The way it divides us is for an example many Arab citizen felt divided as many people thought they were terrorist plotting another attack on U.S. soil.

After reflecting on these issues via this article, these questions, and class discussion, has your concept of what it means to be an American changed? If so, in what way(s)?
No , my concepts on what it means to be an American has not changed. The reason is when tragedy happens in America people will show their patriotism so the workl knows that we will heal and conquer the people that have cause the hurt. Also many people that are not Americans are willing to become one because of the patriotism to this country.
