Summary
  • "The common assumption that the United States is a "nation of immigrants" camouflages the reality that the US is a colonialist settler state"--
  • Many Americans, regardless of party affiliation, will say proudly that we are a nation of immigrants. Dunbar-Ortiz asserts this ideology is harmful and dishonest because it serves to mask and diminish the US’s history of settler colonialism, genocide, white supremacy, slavery, and structural inequality, all of which we still grapple with today. The idea that we are living in a land of opportunity promotes a benign narrative of progress, obscuring that the country was founded in violence as a settler state, and imperialist since its inception. -- adapted from jacket
