Indeed this (a generalization of the Mexican *raza* in its original
political intent) is a valuable point (one I have spoken on before in other
fora); but by the same token you need to realize that *estadouidenses*
really are very disjointed, jointly and severally, and propping them up as
the epitome of imperialism does a lot of injustice to the reality of life in
the United States. If it does not do injustice to the reality of the US
government's effects on the world political climate (which I am not sure
*you in particular* are in the best position to judge), this itself is cause
for critical thought, rather than sole-searching.
