This essay is a response to Giorgio Mariani’s essay in this book, Global Perspectives on the United States. It empathizes with Mariani’s frustrations with the constant replay and repetitions of tired, over-used, and hypocritical discursive games between liberals and conservatives all over Europe with respect to “anti-Americanism.” But, contra Mariani, Broeck asks why he doesn’t just proudly proclaim anti-Americanism as an act of defiance against Americanism, identitarian pressure, exceptionalism and nationalism. This essay suggests that it is best to focus on subversive movements and discourses like the Black Atlantic and Black Power.

Keywords:   anti-Americanism, subversive Americanization, American Studies, exceptionalism, the Black Atlantic, Black Power
