Bruce has some IRISH BLOOD but equally important are his STONES. One of the VERY TOP COMMERCIALLY successful Rock stars willing to address the fact : as wonderful as this LAND is— the clown(s) in charge are WRONG. Kudos Bruce.
I am very surprised that these two songs have not used as protest songs.
Great American Melting Pot From Schoolhouse Rock says that America as a nation is made up of people of almost every nationality and they should be giving the same opportunities.
American Land By Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band says America have you forgotten? Almost everything that you see and enjoy as Americans was created/built by minorities/immigrants. "We made the steel that built the cities with the sweat of our two hands. The McNicholas, the Posalski's, the Smiths, Zirillis too. The Blacks, the Irish, the Italians, the Germans and the Jews. The Puerto Ricans, illegals, the Asians, Arabs miles from home. Come across the water with a fire down below. They died building the railroads, worked to bones and skin. They died in the fields and factories, names scattered in the wind. They died to get here a hundred years ago, they're dyin' now. The hands that built the country were all trying to keep down."
