    What causes some Americans to contend that the diversification of American culture & society

    in terms of broadening definitions of race, gender, & other lifestyle options is leading to the corruption, even downfall of American society as they know it?

    I suspect it is because in the last thirty years, the immigrants, and illegal aliens don't think of America as their new home.

    It seems that they want to establish America as the incubator for their old home. This is different from the immigrants that settle America in the late 1800s, and early 1900s.

    Anytime someone puts their heritage or other adjective  in front of the word American, it tells us what they think of America. Instead of blending in and simple calling themselves Americans, they want top billing to go to the country that they left, and probably the country that forced them out.

    We hear talks about Equality, but how can there be equality when we keep putting words in front of American, that builds a sub culture.

    Please delete it, if this is beyond the scope of your ?

      The U.S. Census Bureau was created in 1902. It puts names in front of the word American for immigrants. The gov. counts us by race. All major city has a "Chinatown" & "Little Italy". Westminster, CA. has an area in called  Little Saigon.

      What does that have to do with my comment? I didn't involve the govt, and those are areas are not a person.

      Brad, What I am saying is our government breaks out these categories for different Americans on the Census reports they have us fill out. Have you ever filled one out? My point is it's not just the immigrants who put a name in front of American.

      That is fine, and the govt is wrong for doing that, but the focus of my comment is still on the people, as they prefer to put American second. I refer to myself as an American. What do you refer yourself as .... American or American?
      Thanks

      I refer to myself as an American.
      However if there is an application or government form that specifies race/gender.... It would be interesting to see the government stop counting citizens by race in Census reports!They won't though.smile

      So fellow American, is this what the government should be doing? Isn't this the government fostering discrimination? There will never be equality as long as the govt pigeon holes the people. Income taxes discriminate because of these pigeon holes.

    Some people love tradition and they hate change!
    Changing someone's closely held beliefs oftentimes leads to conflict. However within each (new generation) tolerance is expanded.
    The past is a known entity while the future is filled with uncertainty.
    Nevertheless some people would love to go back to the 1950s!
