What part of "United States" did you miss?





:b



Isn't United States supposed to be a great melting pot or whatever they call it? Whatever happened to supporting the new comers who can barely finish a sentence without taking 3 breaks in between? :S

It is! We take it, melt it down and turn into English! :D

As long as they learn the language the rest of the country uses (that would be English), I have no problems welcoming legal immigrants. ;D

I think the term "melting pot" is often misunderstood. People seem to have this opinion that it means that everything gets put together without changing, but that's nearly the opposite of the truth. It's like making soup. You put a lot of ingredients together that can add their own noticeable spice or flavor to the mix, but in the end, they are all still part of the soup. Some ingredients will remain in their original state, but others will completely integrate into the soup so that you don't even see them anymore. When you look from outside the pot, you see soup - not chicken, broth, pepper, salt, etc. Just soup.

When people from all around the world come to America, they have to give up some parts of their heritage to acclimate to the whole, but America - in turn - will take on some parts of that heritage as its own. That's the melting pot of America.

To continue beating in the soup analogy, American English is the fire under the pot. It's the language that people use to melt together. If we don't have a common language, no melting will ever occur.
