She also wrote, “to punish the stirrup of sedition, the writer and printer of base and unfounded calumny. This would contribute as much to the peace and harmony of our country,” (Adams 1788-1801). She may just seem like she wants to help the country, but she is really breaking the first amendment. She caused a lot of trouble in getting the Sedition Act passed and it really didn’t improve anything in the country. All it did was put innocent people in
This can even be manifested in names; when people have foreign-sounding name, they are often not associated with the English language and face ostracism on the grounds that they aren’t like Americans. Firoozeh Dumas, in her essay “The ‘F Word,’” explains how her unfamiliar name, which was considered normal in Iran, resulted in her being discriminated against in America. After deciding to go by Julie instead of Firoozeh—due to remarks from her peers—her American classmates became accepting towards her, prompting Dumas’s realization that “these people would have probably never invited [her] to their house had they known [her] as Firoozeh” (Dumas 740). In this, Dumas shows how her American classmates were far more willing to accept someone who spoke English and had a name that was familiar to them. Dumas’s original name, Firoozeh, suggested that she wasn’t born in America, so her peers excluded her.

Even though I get criticized on many of the things I do as president of the United States, I still feel that my voicing over these country that we as American’s have, should make up for me being “weak” as the president. Even opinions from the press has dimmed me in a bad light as the president. Since the spanish foreign policy I have also dealt with the repercussions, but I feel as if you can’t please everybody in America as the president. People even said I was a weak and mediocre president because I did not want America to go to war, but of course things end up diffrently than as planned.

Yeah a lot of us drink too much.”(31, 32) The western viewpoint with internalized racism has followed with European settlers into America and still remains today as they continue the stereotypes associated with Native Americans. Western attitudes not only see the white majority superior than the rest but create stereotypes that people of different backgrounds must face and fight against while living in America.

Which adds to the author's purpose, to show people America is greater than ever. D’Souza makes the controversial point of, “Colonialism and imperialism are not the cause for success but instead a result”, which those who believe America is the result of “bullying others out of resources”, is very off-putting.
