The Melting Pot

We’ve all heard the term melting pot, and over time America has come to be known as one. We have become known to accept different cultures, beliefs, and different people in general. In the United States we have about 306000000 people that’s the third highest population in the world! Our global migrant population is around 215.764. The percentage of our population that is foreign-born has been growing form 10% in 1995 to 15% in 2009. The multicultural nature that the United States has is important to us being successful because it is what makes us strong, and unique from other countries.
Most Hispanic’s in the America are educated, or want to become educated. In 2010 31.6% of foreign-born Latinos ages five and up reported speaking only English, or speaking it very well. Of Latinos 25 and older 62.2% have a bachelor’s degree according to a study made by the Immigration Policy Center.             The world’s total population is approximately 6.8 billion, the current United States population represents a mere 4.5% of the world’s population so about one in every twenty people on the planet is a resident of the United States of America. Of those 306000000 people only about 16.3%, or 49878000 would be Hispanic and an even smaller number would be Mexican.
Over and over again the United States has welcomed people other countries wouldn’t. Accepting new ways of life, languages and people is what makes the United States of America, the United States of America.  A reporter named Huong Le once compared us to a deck of cards saying. “The United States us like a deck of playing cards. No matter the sex, suit or ranks of each cards are, all are significant in its own way. Without one card the deck would be incomplete. America, similar to the deck, is insignificant without diversities. Diversity is what makes the United States complete. “United we stand divided we fall.” Without diversity, the United States will be at its downfall.”  This statement explains the importance of diversity in America, even the reporter looks to have an ethnic background. The United States needs diversity to strive, and to continue being successful.

Acepte los Mexicanos.  Ayude la gente crean una vida major. Hable con la gente de Mexico. No deporte le gente. No argumente con los estadounidenses. No cree mas problemas.

The United States is like a deck of playing cards. No matter what the sex, suits, or ranks of each card are, all are significant in its own way. Without one card, the deck becomes incomplete. America, similar to a deck, is insignificant without diversities. Diversity is what make the United States complete. “United we stand divided we fall.” Without diversity, the United States will be at its downfall.

America has no diversities, it will be just an ordinary country like many others. Being versatile and diverse is what makes us unique and strong. By accepting different backgrounds and cultures into our daily American lifestyle, American have learn to accept that no matter who we are, or what we do, we are all human and should be treated as equals

When people to different countries, they will never hear people ask “what is your ethnicity?” among themselves. However, in the United States, That is a common saying. Why? It is because the United States is like a mini version of the world. It contains over 100 different ethnic groups. Due to that, this country has become stronger than any other country. By living with so many different backgrounds, people in the United States have learned to cope with each other and therefore create a strong bond between themselves. That is probably why so many people have dreamed to come to America, the free country. A country who will accept anyone for who they are not what their backgrounds are.
From the beginning of the history of America, this country has been all about diversity; accepting people from all over the world. Without the various cultures and backgrounds, the United States would not be such an important country like it is today. Basically, all the critical events that impacted this nation greatly have been mostly surrounded by diversity: the civil rights movement, Chinese immigration laws, women suffrage movements, etc. However we dealt with these events in the past, we have accepted all of them into our daily lives. Due to diversity, this nation has become a great threat to other countries. We have shown that different is good and by being different, we are strong and cannot be easily pushed over.
Diversity is what brings people from all over the world together to the United States. Without diversity, we wouldn’t have historical figures like Albert Einstein, Louis Armstrong, Martin Luther King Jr., Michelle Kwan, and many others. Every country is different in its own way, the United States is, however extra different. Due to so many different race living in the country, the United have not just become an ordinary country, it have become an extraordinary country. When there is hardship to overcome, everybody, no matter what nationality they are, come together and help out because together, we are a great nation and no one can conquer it.
To sum it up, diversity is what makes the United States. This country of ours would be nothing compare to the other countries. Due to our ability to accept different ethnicities and be equal, we become very intimidating to other countries, and that shows how strong we are and no matter what obstacles are ahead of us, we can overcome it.
