Melting Pot

In the United States we have a "melting pot" of cultures.  The point is each new group to come here and add their special unique gifts to us all. It is institutional "cultural appropriation" and it allows everyone to share what is best with each other. 

I can eat a taco, drive a Japanese car, and listen to disco music, on the way to the gun range to shoot my Austrian designed Glock, as an American.  We have historically selected the best from each culture and adopted it as a part of American culture.

As a historian I read about Crazy Horse, the Buffalo Soldiers, the Chinese building the railroads, and I can celebrate them all because they are all Americans, just like me.  That's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
