from European To An American

What is an American?

The American is a title that is earned and engraved. Those who set to arrive and thrive in peace upon this land are welcome. They become one with other nationalities, all seeking the path of liberty, prosperity, and ingenuity together.

I decided to use the song "Just Like You" towards the standpoint between American Identity, Diversity, and the Revolutionary War against the British. It brings out the perspectives of angry citizens starting with the creation of the Proclamation of 1763. Supposedly, this proclamation line was to protect the American's from any threats. This event certainly caused an uproar against British rule along with the constant waves of taxation. Eventually, this would result in the "chicks" rebelling against "Mother Hen's" rules.

As in various lines of the song; " You thought you were standing beside me. You were only in my way. You're wrong if you think that I'll be just like you." It certainly reveals strong emotions towards the British intervening in the American society, and trying to tell THEM, what to do, and not do.

I favor this thematic connection because it gives us that sheer image on American values; upon how these values should stand out from the rest of the nations throughout that era, and Forever on..
