    What would you say that the future of W.A.S.P. is going to be?

    With so many different laws and rules governing the future, the history and the beliefs of W.A.S.P. are being challenged and disassembled.

    White, Anglo-Saxon Protestant has been the BACKBONE and predominant consensus culture of America for some time. White, Anglo-Saxon Protestant culture is evident in American laws,customs, and language.This culture has even influenced religion as the majority of Americans have been and/or categorized as Protestants. 

    Even with the influx of immigration from the mid-19th century to the early 20th century of Irish,German,Scandinavian,and later Jewish,Slavs,Greeks, and Italians,such immigrants added their flavor to the predominant Anglo-Saxon culture;however, these groups eventually learned English and other mannerisms, becoming assimilated into Anglo-American culture. Some of these immigrants anglicized their names in order to advance and assimilate more quickly in the American socioeconomic ladder.   Many such immigrants realized if they stayed enmeshed in their culture, they would not advance socioeconomically. 

    Even the so-called unassimilable immigrants i.e. people of color such as African-Americans and Asian-Americans were forced to assimilate into the White, Anglo-Saxon, Protestant culture in order to advance and/or for survival purposes. For example, African-Americans were FORCED to assimilate into the prevailing American culture in order to survive, being told in one way or another that their original culture was inferior. Asian-Americans also faced the same travails but to a lesser degree than African-Americans. 

    Latino Americans have always been a source of contention in American culture as they were considered by many White, Anglo-Saxon Protestants to be purposely unassimilable.They still ARE to a certain extent. American culture is becoming more variegated than ever. There is no one culture imminent anymore. While some elements of Anglo-Saxon culture exist, it is mixed with other, newer culture to give it flavor. White Anglo-Saxon Protestants are becoming less WASP in orientation and prospective; however, they will be PRESENT in America for a long time coming.
