The greater significance of such laws, however, is the way they touch on deeply held and frequently conflicting beliefs about the role of immigration in American history and national identity. The image of the melting pot drew its strength from the idea of unity fostered by beliefs and ideals—not race, blood, or sect. English, the German, the Irish emigrant into an American.

The individuality of the immigrant, almost even his traits of race and religion, fuse down in the democratic alembic like chips of brass thrown into the melting pot. America is God’s crucible, the great melting-pot where all the races of Europe are melting and re-forming! This image, then, communicated the historically exceptional notion of American identity as one formed not by the accidents of blood, sect, or race, but by the unifying beliefs and political ideals enshrined in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution: the notion of individual, inalienable human rights that transcend group identity. Of course, over the centuries this ideal was violated in American history by racism, ethnocentrism, xenophobia, and other ignorant prejudices. Of course, this process of assimilation also entailed costs and sacrifice. American: to learn the language, history, political principles, and civic customs that identified one as an American. This demand was necessarily in conflict with the immigrants’ old culture and its values, and, at times, led to a painful loss of old ways and customs.

But how immigrants negotiated the conflicts and trade-offs between their new and old identities was up to them. Ultimately, though, they had to make their first loyalty to America and its ideals. If some custom, value, or belief from the old country conflicted with those core American values, then the old way had to be modified or discarded if the immigrant wanted to participate fully in American social, economic, and political life. Starting in the 1960s, however, another vision of American pluralism arose, captured in the metaphor of the salad bowl. This view expresses the ideology of multiculturalism, which goes far beyond the demand that ethnic differences be acknowledged rather than disparaged. Multiculturalism, not content to respect or celebrate diversity, seeks to indict American civilization for its imperial, colonial, xenophobic, and racist sins. Long before multiculturalism came along, Americans wrestled with the conflicts and clashes that immigrants experienced.

Multiculturalism as we know it is not about respecting or celebrating the salad bowl of cultural or ethnic diversity, but about indicting American civilization for its imperial, colonial, xenophobic, and racist sins. Multiculturalism idealizes immigrant cultures and ignores their various dysfunctional practices and values. At the same time, it relentlessly attacks America as a predatory, soulless, exploitative, warmongering villain responsible for all the world’s ills. Multiculturalism confines the individual in the box of his race or culture, despite his own wishes or chosen identity. Worse still, the identity politics at the heart of multiculturalism directly contradict the core assumption of our liberal democracy: the principle of individual and inalienable rights that each of us possess no matter what group or sect we belong to. And so the common identity shaped by the Constitution, the English language, and the history, mores, and heroes of America gives way to multifarious, increasingly fragmented micro-identities.

Multicultural identity politics worsen the problems of illegal immigration. Many immigrants, legal or otherwise, are now encouraged to celebrate the cultures they have fled and to prefer them to the one that gave them greater freedom and opportunity. No matter how the laws of Arizona and other states fare, this problem of assimilation will remain. Millions of the illegal immigrants in this country are no doubt striving to become Americans despite the obstacles multiculturalism has put in their path. Many others have not developed that sense of American identity, nor have they been compelled, as immigrants were in the past, to acknowledge the civic demands of America and give her their loyalty. 2012 by the Board of Trustees of the Leland Stanford Junior University. 12 Education at the Hoover Institution. Anderson brings together this collection of essays featuring the work of nine leading policy analysts, who argue that market forces are just as important as government regulation in shaping climate policy.

America eventually become assimilated into American culture, thus creating multiple cultures that have blended into one. America combine their cultures with others, but still retain their own cultural identity. Basically, America is one big integration of unique, distinct cultures. The debate between these two metaphors is constant and depends on how someone views the world and the United States.

These two metaphors are used to describe America’s multiculturalism. The United States is home to immigrants from all over the world, which has resulted in such a high amount of multiculturalism. Immigrants are constantly coming to America and bringing their unique cultures with them. We are all together, as one, but we also all have distinct cultures. Chinese-American citizens still celebrate the Chinese New Year. Many cultures celebrate American holidays, even if it is not part of their own culture.

For example, many non-Christian families who do not celebrate Christmas still partake in the exchange of gifts on this holiday. On top of that, the majority of immigrants from other countries that come to the United States do assimilate in the language area. Although there is no official language declared by the federal government, English is the most spoken language in the United States, as well as the official language in 31 states. On the social level, immigrants may also assimilate. Every culture has different social qualities, whether is be related to eye contact, conversational distance, or physical contact. When it comes to basic social interactions, like a conversation or a handshake, immigrants may easily assimilate into American culture. People of other nationalities still keep their cultural identities.

America from a different country, their cultural identity is basically lost and becomes solely American. But can’t you be American and still have your own distinct culture, even if it is from outside of the United States? Immigrants should not be expected to assimilate into American culture. America was founded as the land of the free and a place where you can be whoever you want. Therefore, if America wants to uphold this ideal that the country was founded on, immigrants should be allowed to decide when and how much they assimilate into American culture, if they decide to at all. American culture is a mix of hundreds, if not thousands, of different cultures. People from all over the world have been coming to America since it was first discovered, so in reality, America’s culture is everyone’s culture.

American culture cannot simply be defined as one thing. It is hard to define it at all, just because of how great and complex it is. America’s culture is the melting pot belief. It is a mixture of every culture in a really bad way, like you said about Christmas being only about the gift exchange part. When I came to the US, I was amazed at all the different cultures co-existing together. However, as I learned English and more about the people here I noticed that there was a lot of hate in between each culture. First I can say I learn a new concept, salad bowl and I understand more about melting pot.

As America is a land of freedom where everyone can live in peace and feel like it’s his own country, the salad bowl is the concept right concept to support it and if it is accepted by everyone it will offer a better common life in peace and respect. And I agree with those who think that English would be the language spoken in this area, so Americans support to share their country with all immigrants the common language must be used. The melting pot is where many different cultures come to the United States with their culture, The get to know all the other cultures their. The melting pot is where people from different cultures come to the U. The melting pot is where different cultures have really harsh backgrounds. They all just blend in it doesn’t matter what race they are they all blend together.

The salad bowl means that different countries form together, and form into one. The salad bowl means that different countries form together, and form into one or two country’s and from two country’s.
