Toward People Group Diversity

So diverse with people groups! That is how we can describe the USA now. Just this weekend I am having three separate meals with three distinct people groups – a Farsi family, a Jingpho Kachin couple, and a Cantonese Chinese family – all who have differently dealt with assimilation and integration the USA differently.

Some people groups, no matter how long they have lived in the USA, do not find it necessary to assimilation. Instead due to the demographic size of their people group they easily maintain their distinct linguistic, socio-cultural, and/or religious norms. This even applies to their children who also easily find identity within the majority of their own people group.

As a result, the USA continues moving toward pluralism in the shape of ethno-linguistic diversity.
