Thoughts in the mind of l0oree

Advanced Composition discussion


In the essay, Assimilation American Style, by Peter Stalins, the pitch is that America in a sense is not a melting pot due to the freedoms to maintain and have the rights of your native culture. So each culture maintains their own ethnicity through laws in place to rightfully practice their ways. He argues that with no melting there is not in a sense an “American” culture only different ethnic societies. At the end Stalins contemplates that to fit in a group you need to conform to the majority.

In the essay, The Fearof Losing a Culture, by Richard Rodriguez, the pitch is that Hispanics have assimilated until their original culture is becoming unknown. You are finding more and more of the Mexican Americans in movies, comedy, plays, music, etc… Not only is the original culture becoming lost Mexicans are putting there mark into the melting pot. Rodriguez complaints the point that Mexicans had experienced melting in Mexico before arriving to America, and that Mexicans come here for niceties that are not found in Mexico. They like the nice things here and melt into the pot easily.

When reading Rodriguez’s essay, I surmised that he is concerned that the identity is already lost all together of Indian and Spanish. That already the Mexican is both cultures. That when looking at the Mexican already you cannot tell which one is the most dominate. The Mexican learned to assimilate well before arriving to United States. Now comes to US for nicer things and loses more culture easily.
