Mensagem:  You are certainly right in your definition of "manifest destiny". However, its goal has certainly failed as we the Black people of America are still here after all the attemps to anihilate us. Moreover, by your claiming the American culture as being "Viking" without referencing to non-whites cultural contributions, you seem to totally disregard the phenomenal contributions of the non-white people of this country. And furthermore, I think you should be more history-conscious whenever you write anything on this forum. You see, as a white person, anything you say can be taken for granted as "correct". You could deathly wrong and yet they'll assume you are right, specially from people in developing countries-Brazil being one. Whereas I, as a Black person have to go one step further to prove my point. This is the result of the odious attempt of whites to portray America as "white" country at the expense of its non-white citizens' phenomenal contributions.
