Berlant's article was the hardest for me to understand this week. Though having information being talked about what it means to be a citizen or an American was helpful in learning about the article. In general, the whole idea of citizenship became complicated as I thought of "good citizens" and immigration in the U.S. I had to read a lot about immigration last semester in my intro. to Chicana/o literature class and from that class to this article, I only thought more about citizenship. Thinking about the "typical" citizen is so difficult because of the huge variety of people in America and the multitude of places they all come from. One main thing I have learned and realized from this week was that the "normal" of white and Eurocentric ideals have put a huge disrupt on the acceptance of other races or nationalities into the spin of the United States.
