Quick bit on the Coke ad Controversy

What is the attachment to English? Could it be that rejection of English is a rejection of the legitimacy of an anglo-centric supremacy? For some to be American is to be Anglo. This is why we have birthers. African lineage can’t be American, therefore our president can’t be American.. Even JFK, a fine Irish boy, had to fight connection the papacy of Rome. Catholicism isn’t Anglo enough.
