We can see all kinds of people!!!




The United States open their citizenships to other people who are from different countries. This country is also established by many different immigrants. Majority of Americans moved from England. However, there are a lot of different minority imigrants moved to the United States. Therefore, we can see other countries cultures in everywhere in the United States. For example, foods, holidays, and religions are a little bit different from traditional America culture.
First, we cannot tell that there are a lot of traditionail American food. Steak and mash potatoes are from England. Pizza, pasta, and french fries are from Italy. Hamburger and hotdog are from Germany. Taco is from Mexico. As you can see, many foods what we have been called as a American food were come from other contries and have been changed a little bit to nowadays' American.
Second, there are two major holidays such as Thanksgivin day and Christmas. Evnen though there are no national holidays, there are a lots of special days depends on the other ethnics. Whatever holidays or not, they are big of big deal not only to a certain group but also to other people. andSt. "Patrick's day" is celebrated by Irish-American. "Day of the Dead" is celebrated by Mexican-American. "Dyngus Day" is a Polish-origin holiday so that it celebrated New York, Indiana, Michigan, and North Dakota. "Midsummer" is celebrated in Minnesota and other Scandinavian-American areas. "Von Steuben Day" celebrated by German Americans. Of course, at the first, they were celebrated by their own ethnics. However, by passing of times, people have been mixed with other peoples. Nowaday, people celebrate other special days from other countries.
Third, there are a lot of differents kinds of religions. Christians(Puritans, Quakers, and Roman Catholics), Judaism, Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism, Unitarian Universalism, Native American religious practice, and no religion.
American is the only country that have all kinds of peoples so far. Therefore, it has a lot of difficult cultural shock. However, it is the only one country who have a ability to understand deepper of other peoples. It teaches us how to get along with other peoples. We can undergo every cultures(a little bit) by meeting other peoples.

  2. I enjoy the diversity of the United States. It's nice to know that we can all unite under one common bond as "Americans" and don't judge based on peoples skin color, or background.

  3. I think that some cultures clash and others America seems to mesh them with our own. We have the ability to understand their cultures but as Americans we're stubborn and choose not to.

  8. The United States is surely a melting pot of different cultures. It's really an amazing thing about it though. It's the only place where you'll find nearly every culture in the world gathered together :).

  21. Thanks for the post, Rice, although it is too short for such a crucial subject.

    I would be most interested to hear about how diversity can be a bad thing. In my mind, I can't help but think the benefits outweigh the costs, but it wouldn't be the first time I was blind to some obvious argument. What am I missing?
