Citizenship and migration in the Americas. NYU scholarship online.
'Settler Colonialism, Race, and the Law' begins from the premise that the United States is neither postracial nor postcolonial. Using the lens of settler colonial theory, it attributes the origins and persistence of racialized inequities in the United States to the prerogatives asserted by its predominantly Angloamerican founders to appropriate Indigenous lands and resources, to profit from the labour of voluntary and involuntary migrants, and to ensure that all people of colour remain 'in their place.' This text assesses the experiences of American Indians, African Americans, Latina/os, and Asian Americans to the present day in terms of the strategies utilized by the settlers to accomplish these ends.
