I think culture, religion, ethnicity is very important in one’s life. They should know where there from and who they are. Everyone comes from somewhere around the world, even if they were born in another country, they still
originated from somewhere. If they don’t know where they’re from they don’t have an identity; their last name is just part of their identity, they should know where that last name came from, and who else it belonged to.
Assimilation shouldn’t be a main goal in America today. People should try really hard to adjust to American life; but it’s so hard, especially when someone comes to this country at first. There are so many diverse cultures’ here today, it’s confusing. I don’t even know what American culture is. Unless it’s baseball, hotdogs, and rock music, but those have been taken in by other cultures.
People today should try to compromise, but shouldn’t get penalized for failing at a custom, or speaking a language. Spanish in California is mostly all around because of the wide population of Latinos that was one solution in helping them. But so many other cultures are growing that we can’t do that for everyone, so America and all the other countries here need to think up a solution.
