there is no “us” and “them” – in this country, there is only “us”

“There’s no doubt the debate over how to fix all this has been a fractured, often painful one. Some seek political upside in distorting the facts and dividing our people. Some take advantage of economic anxiety to stoke fear of those who look, or think, or worship differently – to inflame passions between “us” and “them.” Well, I have news for them: it won’t work. Because there is no “us” and “them”. In this country, there is only “us.” There is no Latino America or Black America or White America or Asian America. There is only the United States of America.”

President Barack Obama at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute’s 33rd Annual Awards Gala, September 15
