Multiculturalism In America

Good Essays
America is a multicultural country. People came from all around the world that are living in this big society. You can see people are combining two or more different cultures together. They are trying to learn and accept different things. Like, chopsticks are no longer a patent of Chinese, most people know how to use chopsticks. Most immigrants are fitting into American society. Likewise, most Americans are willing to become allies or family with foreigners. Most people accepted the concept of multiculturalism, but you can still notice that there are lots of arguments between two different cultures in one society. Does multiculturalism better encourage social cohesion and unity? I might say if it is, there won’t be tons of culture wars keep …show more content…
Multicultural states are often unsuccessful. It faces problems of social cohesion, conflict, and even violence. Assimilation seems like more successful than multiculturalism. Historical evidence, such as black life issues, protests, anti-Muslim sentiment, anger against undocumented immigrants, seems to support this conclusion and increase the belief that multiculturalism damages a social or community mind. Multiculturalism is also damaging the international system. For example, there are many Chinese in the United States. However, not every Chinese knows how to speak English fluently. As a result, the US government has found ways to help the Chinese solve social problems. When people try to promote their products, they use English, Spanish and Chinese to promote. I think this is a solution to a problem that does not highlight its underlying cause. Those who cannot speak fluent English will not try to read these words in English, they prefer to read in Chinese. Because they do not learn, the gap between China and the United States may be growing. In other words, in some way, assimilation may be a better way for all …show more content…
More diversities will arise because of more difference. When people do not accept their community are assimilated with other cultured people, they might think why they should share the same place to some strangers. This situation is similar to the election of Donald Trump’s supporters. Those supporters and Trump are not only not willing to share the place with others, they think they are the best and the most suitable one to live in this planet. They are acting like those Americans who were not only humiliated other colors of people in the 1900s, they also treated and forced others as slaves to show they were higher-level human being in the world! These arrogant and selfish people want to replace or extinct other human beings in the world. They want to be the best! They want to repeat the history to show the difference! For those non-Trump’s team, for sure, will not have the same standpoint that Trump has. So, they community didn’t gather as one. It divided dozens. Team Trump against team Clinton; assimilation against integration. Class distinction makes the society worse. Multiculturalism is not making the society as a unit. It is separating numerous

    Why would Google say no to this but aid the Chinese government in making sure their citizens are left in the dark to many important topics? Additionally, if governments can have Google block sites, it should be possible that governments can influence the ranking of certain sites. This is where the study gets more into media being able to influence the minds of citizens. Halavais says, “Given the importance of informed citizenry to effective government, there may be an interest in countering the hegemonic tendencies of search engines, and encouraging more open discourse.” (Halavais 134) The search engines will only show the user what they want to see, in other words, what they search for, whereas news shows and newspapers show what they think is newsworthy and important for the citizenry to know. They are gatekeepers for the general public, telling them only what they deem as important on that day.…

    When people are proven wrong, they are more likely to viciously hold onto their misinformation and wrongness than change their minds. This is the fundamental problem with humans. Some know this as pride, others call it hubris, and even more call it stubbornness. The fact is, excessive pride to the point of corruption is no stranger to governments who dig their heels in when people call them untrustworthy. Governments are most likely to look out for themselves and their special interests when they are challenged by the people, as proven in the election for President of the United States in 2016.…

    First, when the Canadian officials exchanged them for money, I know they had an intention to resist the immigrant from going in. However, if the Chinese had money, they can still immigrate anyway. So, it suggests that the Chinese are not poor people to begin with. Second, when the Mexicans were helping the Chinese to familiarize the American language by giving them dictionaries and road maps to mastermind the American roads, that made the work of the border officials harder to accomplish because if they knew the route where there are immigrant officials, they are not going to go there. This leads to a significant influx of Chinese which nullified the work of the border patrol officers.…

    Racism is far more than stereotypes and slaves; racism is the systematic oppression of a marginalized group due to a racial hierarchy. This means that there are varying degrees of prejudice that are ingrained in various aspects of society. Keep in mind that while the oppressing group might experience the less severe, superficial levels of prejudice, marginalized groups are affected by all of them, to the highest extent. For example, the lowest degree of racism is composed of subtle acts of bias, such as insensitive remarks, rumors, and stereotypes. White folks may hear sarcastic jeers and comments now and them, but that’s as bad as it gets for them in terms of racial oppression.…

    To reduce the amount of illegal immigrants crossing the border, reducing the potential earnings they can make in America will change their mind about the “American dream”. Not only is it effective, it’s better than wasting more money on border control or building another wall of China then having to fight the underground trespass war. Different countries have different policies and conditions towards immigration. Some required one or more relatives already a citizen in the country, others may ask for disclosing assets. Immigration requires a tremendous amount of paperwork and the process is also hideous.…
