Posted: Updated:

In honor of Independence Day, LatinoVoices and Define American bring you personal stories from all walks of life on what it means to be American.

Stephen Colbert is as informative as he is funny as host of Comedy Central’s satirical news show The Colbert Report in which he plays a caricatured version of conservative political pundits. TIME Magazine named him one of the 100 Most Influential People Of All Times calling him "devastating" and "endearing" at the same time. So what's America's favorite (satirical) patriotic, right-wing news anchor, definition of American?

"How do I define American? I look in the mirror.... yeah," Colbert says in the Define American video.
