In the second chapter, this concept of belonging is focused on by how the state and its citizens produce and act on this notion of belonging. The popular and visual culture translation of this state- mandated “homeland” facilitated the recategorization of all of America— ostensibly united and strengthened— into two populations: those who belonged and those who did not.
