The interpretation of American democracy
Is best exemplified in its foreign policy

from Immortal Technique (Ft. CF, Joell Ortiz, Panama Alba & Pumpkinhead) – Young Lords Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The best way way to view Americas “democracy” is to see how they treat other countries eg. Nicaragua Contra, Iran Contra, Vietnam wars, war in Iraq and Afghanistan etc.

This is ironic because the word “democracy” is defined as a form of government in which all adult citizens have an equal say in the decisions that affect their lives

Also — Here he is saying that American democracy is best described by its “foreign policy dichotomy” i.e. the separation of how it treats its perceived allies (e.g. Israel and Saudi Arabia) and its enemies (Iran, Iraq etc)
