 Anglo America
America is a song from West Side Story by Leonard Bernstein, also performed by the UK rock group The Nice.
In both the United States, especially in the Southwest, and Australia it usually means any white person of non- Hispanic ethnicity.In Australia this is because 'Anglo' is the abbreviation of Anglo-Celtic, which refers to the large proportion ofAustralians who are of mixed English and Celtic, namely Scottish, Irish and Welsh, stock.

 Who's Continent is it Anyway? - United Native America
Recently, we came across a 1998 Newsweek copyrighted map that refers to the United States and Canada as "Anglo America" and all points south as "Latin America and the Caribbean." On this world migration map, as one person noted, America is the only continent that has demographics mixed with geography.
Anglo, but North America is all U.S.A."Many were horrified at the map's educational design: Carrie Medina de Espina, Portland, Ore. wrote: "If I were to walk into my child's classroom and see such an overt racist theology hanging on the classroom wall, I would be compelled to remove it and permanently destroy this hate-teaching tool."
Neither "Anglo" nor "Latin" America was acceptable for many. /issues/continent.html

 The American Enterprise: One Nation, Out of Many
Multiculturalists argue that white Anglo America has suppressed other cultural alternatives, and that America in the future should not be a society with a single pervasive national culture, but instead should become a "tossed salad" of many starkly different ingredients.
Throughout our history, people who were not white, Anglo-Saxon Protestants have become Americans by adopting America's Anglo-Protestant culture and political values.
America was founded as a Protestant society, and for 200 years almost all Americans practiced Protestantism. /issues/articleid.18144/article_detail.asp

 Orozco and Anglo-America
The panel that follows depicts a Latin America which is symbolized by a revolutionist [Zapata] whom a bemedalled general is about to knife: rather, whom he is in the act of stabbing.
I think that Latin America's history of almost unabated revolutions and political violence since 1810 adds a dimension to the word 'individual' that is beyond our understanding of that word.
Perhaps in a two-class society, such as prerevolutionary Latin America, the 'individualist' separates himself from the constraints of caste by becoming a 'revolutionist' who foments chaos and disorder. /~library/Library_Bulletin/Apr1992/LB-A92-Levenson.html

Latin America, for all its variety, as a showcase for all the problems of the "underdeveloped" world, despite the fact that it has been theoretically independent for a long time, and theoretically democratic for a long time.
"Latin America cheers up," The Economist 18AP92, pp 11-12 talks about the prospective boom to our south and whether it is only another blip in a long up and down cycle...
"Venezuela's policy for Brazil's gold miners: bullets," NYT 16Fe92, p.20 discusses one of the border conflicts in South America; this one is due to gold miners crossing into Yanomani Indian preserves in Venezuela in search of gold. /~williams/print/txt_lati.htm

 Webb, "Lord Churchill's Coup: The Anglo-American Empire and the Glorious Revolution Reconsidered" (1995)
Throughout, Webb makes it clear that at the heart of Churchill's ascent and actions is his vision of America as a decisive factor in the world war between England and France for imperial supremacy.
There can be no doubt, and here Webb has really done a great service, that events in America were intimately related to political and religious developments in England.
That restructuring moves toward the eighteenth century to recast the so-called 'Glorious Revolution' of 1688 (in England) and 1689 (in America) as a military coup and the beginning of a hundred years of war for American empire.... /~rpekarek/gwebbglrev.html

 Free Life 33, August 1999
The same religious factions that sided with American independence, both in Britain and America, supported the Parliamentary side in the English Civil War over a century before; the same factions that supported the Crown, on either side of the Atlantic, were those which had supported the Crown.
Britain and America must be understood as areas separated by an ideological border created by civil war - the subsequent divergence of their politics has been primarily a matter of sorting of populations.
Similarly, America is no longer properly seen as a new nation that sprang, like Athena fully-formed from the head of Zeus, into the world in 1776. /freelife/flhtm/fl33benn.htm

 Comparison: Latin American and Anglo American Characteristics
Civil religion was promoted by the Anglo American nation both by the citizens themselves in order to develop their culture by strengthening their sense of nationalism, and by the government - since the Supreme Court's ruling regarding the reading of the Bible in public schools was an act of the central government.
As opposed to the Anglo American colonists who acquired for themselves a status of aristocracy or gentry, and ran most public affairs in freedom, the Latin American colonists were generally adventurers or people seeking advancement in the colonial administration and Catholic Church, both of which played an important role.
A true look at Latin America and Anglo America must make us question whether the representation of Latin America as a symbol of a hierarchic dictatorship and the US as a symbol of freedom, liberalism, and openness, isn't a reversal of the reality in these countries. /titles/c15.htm

 America & Britain in Prophecy -- Chapter 3: Anglo-American Ethnic Roots
No one disputes the Anglo-Saxon-Celtic background of the British, by whom Colonial America was primarily settled.
It is interesting to note that U.S. immigration laws and policies--during much of America's critical, formative years and up until the middle of the 20th century--deliberately favored the peoples of Northwest Europe while, at the same time, limiting white peoples from southern or eastern Europe.
For years, immigrants to the U.S. were greeted by the Statue of Liberty on their way to America's chief port of entry, Ellis Island. /abp3.htm

 INTERRACIAL VOICE - Point-CounterPoint
Anglo-Saxon America should be envious of the work-rate and ethic of immigrants because it's far superior to theirs.
If everyone in America were to go back to their country of linage/ancestry if it were better or become better then America, there would be no America left, most people would be gone.
The image Americans seem to have of "the complete Latin America" is one of coconut trees, cane fields, the occasional refugee crossing the border with a sombrero, etc etc. Well, purchase a world ticket and educate yourself once in your life. /~intvoice/point26b.html

 Harvard University Press/The Rise and Fall of Anglo-America
But from the late 1890s to the 1930s, liberal and cosmopolitan ideological currents within white Anglo-Saxon Protestant America mounted a powerful challenge to WASP hegemony.
Kaufmann begins his account shortly after independence, when white Protestants with an Anglo-Saxon myth of descent established themselves as the dominant American ethnic group.
This demographic shift has spawned a "culture war" within white America. /catalog/KAURIS.html

 Anglo America and De Beers face multibillion dollar lawsuit for alleged apartheid era abuses
Black Anglo American and De Beers workers were paid less than their white counterparts, beaten and intimidated when they tried to unionize, and were not compensated for workplace injuries, said John Ngcebetsha, a South African lawyer representing former employees here.
The commission specifically mentioned Anglo American, the country's largest mining company, as an example of a corporation whose profits were enriched by "the systematic violations of human rights." Anglo American has a 45 percent stake in De Beers.
The suit was filed in a Nevada court, Anglo America's base in the United States, according to Ngcebetsha. /cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/news/archive/2003/04/07/international1836EDT0817.DTL

As Mexican American historian Manuel Gonzales has pointed out, even seminal works in Chicano Studies, like Rodolfo Acuna's 1972 "Occupied America," were seemingly less concerned with telling the story of Mexican Americans (the good guys) than they were with highlighting Chicano oppression at the hands of Anglo Americans (the bad guys).
In "Occupied America," Acuna was perhaps among the first to openly declare that Mexicans did not come to the United States in order to improve their economic prospects.
In an energetic chapter titled "Buscando America," he tackles the multifaceted and ever-changing nature of what he calls "Latinidad." He perceptively concludes that "to be Latino in the United States. /index.cfm?pg=article&DocID=33

Most of them came to America as the victims of an artificial famine in which their landlords provided the natives with a fine example of Anglo-Protestant humanity by continuing to export vast quantities of grain and beef while the Catholic peasantry starved to death in huge numbers.
He's at his worst when he thinks he's being generous, as here: "Throughout America's history, people who were not white Anglo-Saxon Protestants have become Americans by adopting America's Anglo-Protestant culture and political values.
The question is disingenuous because Huntington already has an answer, the same one that has been peddled by American bigots for hundreds of years: America is and must remain an Anglo-Protestant culture. /print.cfm?content_id=10134

It was also critical to the emergence of North America as an English-speaking area, because if England has been overwhelmed by a French alliance, let's say, with Ireland in the 18th century that would have just starved the English-speaking colonies in North America.
Bit-by-bit you got more Catholic migration to the United States, and the centrality of this is another thing that relates to the results and context to the American Revolution, because America was the creature of dissenting Protestantism, not a state church.
Who knows what would have happened to Britain and who knows what would have happened to the British colonies in North America? /speech/phillips.html

 Who We Will Be by Ross Douthat - Policy Review, No. 127
For people who share his unfashionable form of patriotism, the problem is not that America cannot continue on its present course, but rather that it can — that the end of Huntington’s America will not mean the end of America itself.
Throughout our history, Huntington argues, America has been understood to be more than a vast “nation of immigrants” united only by their allegiance to the Bill of Rights.
One need not share the more perfervid fantasies of Pat Buchanan to worry that this emerging America is closer to a democratic imperium than it is to the democratic republic of the founding fathers. /oct04/douthat.html

 Borderlands circa 1900 A.D.
Mexicanos recognized the importance of protecting this century old tradition, but Anglo delegates in California saw such an institution as subverting the Common Law that was at the heart of the American legal system (see Carry Mc Willams’ work for information on this subject).
Montejano points out how after the war Anglo America was faced with the reality of “what to do with the defeated enemy” (25).
The issue of Taxation which the Mexicano delegation hoped would rest in the power of individual counties, was also defeated by Anglo delegates who worried that county power would promote “fraud and deception” by “large land owners” particularly those in Mexicano communities (Morefield Richard, “The Mexican Adaptation in American California 1846-1875,” M.A. Unv. /~ecdn/essay1900.html

 AM Archive - Anglo America wants greater control over Anaconda
DAVID WEBER: Reports this week that Anglo American was planning a takeover of Anaconda generated an increase in the share price.
Anglo currently has about 25 per cent of Anaconda, which is largely foreign owned and is based and listed in Perth.
Anglo's threatened to withhold financial support for Anaconda, if its demands are not met. /am/stories/s268778.htm

Mexico City —“The best Indian is a dead Indian.” “The best nigger is a nigger slave.” “The yellow threat.” “The red threat.” The Puritanism one finds at the base of WASP culture (White, Anglo Saxon, and Protestant) in the United States of America expresses itself, from time to time, with shocking color.
All of this, when taking into account the number of Mexicans and Latin Americans in the United States, constitutes a cultural threat for that which Huntington dares to mention: the Anglo-American, Protestant, and Anglo speaking white race.
Even, if, in a curiously benevolent way, he offers his space to “Christianism.” Most assuredly, Israel and Islam are menaces to be equally condemned as are Mexico and Hispanic America, and, by extension today’s Spain, for their undesirable incursions into the old territories of Huntington’s Kingdom. /archive/2004_spring/fuentes.html

The public relations battle surrounding Anglo American's bid to increase its influence on the Perth based Anaconda Company is taking new twists and turns.

...This view is "authentic" to America in that it reflects recognizable characteristics of public feeling in the United States, a determination that American policy shall stand for something noble, a refusal to compromise with evil, and an automatic conviction that no task is too big for America to undertake...
...Similarly, the British would be wise to consider who, in fact, in America is calling for war against China proper, and whether these calls to arms have any real popular support among the actual policy-makers...
