The article reports on the issues concerning the cultural identity in the U.S. It is stated that the confusion on American identity is the result of a demographic fact. The mirror which media hold up to the values and concerns as a nation, is conducted by Euro Americans and a few African Americans. The professional thinking classes have been blindsinded by new identity politics of race and gender. To undestand American identity, one needs to know more of the country than just its coastal cities.
