I'm asking this thinking that you may be assuming that I don't know about ethnic pride, ethnic food festivals, ethnic clubs, ethnic neighborhoods, etc.
Why can't people have pride in their heritage and also be part of a larger community? Our strength, as we're realizing, is in our diversity.
With respect, this doesn't really answer the question. It's not a bad question, but it's just a question concerning how things should
be, vs. how they really are.
I'm assuming that you had a problem with my comment "the U.S. is a color-coded nation
". And maybe assuming that I condone this notion.
