As far as I can tell, American exceptionalism has existed since the inception of our country. For each wave of immigrants over the last two centuries we have generally met them with new forms of racism over fear paranoia and hate at the thought of the change they bring to our culture. Other races have only been included in the general makeup of “true Americans” in order to “fight” other immigrants.
I think this has largely led to the current racist tensions we have now. A lot of people hate differently colored races here when as little as decades ago, they themselves would have been considered as “non-white”.For all that we claim to love freedom and promote self worth, we shit on the “different” as a tradition.
