We are all just a piece of the American puzzle. The Melting Pot helps people feel welcome and wanted in a culture other than their own. Multiculturalism definitely played a part in early America. People who immigrated from other countries to America assimilated to the culture around them. That wasn’t because they were forced to do it, they did it because they were welcomed into America.

    Whether America is a ‘melting pot’ or a ‘mixed salad’ is an enduring metaphorical debate among historians, philosophers, and sociologists alike. Some believe our nation’s collective mentality is numerous separate cultures bumping against each other but never melding, while some believe our nation’s mentality is one new culture, informed and influenced by, but separate from all other world cultures.
