The Melting Pot

Most of us have wondered what American culture is. What really defines this North American culture? And when we dig deeper, American culture isn’t as straight forward and simplistic as it appears to be. Though most of the people who live in this land may call themselves American, each individual has a cultural history. In the general sense, they are Americans, but as you delve deeper you will start hearing stuff like: Oh, I emigrated to the United States as an infant. Oh, we are second generation North Americans. Oh, we still have so much Dutchness, Polishness, and Indianness in us. America is a land that welcomes everyone.

I guess I just want to conclude with this that any time a non-white American does something superb-be that Miss America of Indian descent, a powerful young singer of Mexican descent, no one is really allowed to raise a finger at them or comment on their race. NO ONE. Because America is made of up people as these.
