Americans in Focus
In 2008, FSN launched a public service initiative called Americans in Focus, with the sponsorship support of Farmers Insurance. This initiative consists of one-minute vignettes profiling persons of non-Caucasian ethnicity. Americans in Focus launched in February 2008 for Black History Month and continued all through September and October for Hispanic Heritage Month. Focus returned in February 2009 for Black History Month, then again in March 2009 for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. After that, the series was discontinued and the companion website was shut down.

how can they be so suspicious and they are so

having tucked their capital, their capitals away.”
