American Studies

When I told my parents I was an American studies major, they were like, “That’s fantastic! Did you read Mark Twain?”

“No, I didn’t.”

“What did you read?”

“Marcuse, Adorno, Horkheimer, Michel Foucault.”

“They don’t sound American!”

“They’re not.”

Andrew Breitbart

I’ve had this exact same conversation countless times.
