Homework Help: Social Studies (History)

Why was the United States a "salad bowl" rather than a "melting pot"?
"Salad bowl" means everybody is not the same and "melting pot" means everybody is the same.
I said The U.S. is a "salad bowl" because everyone is treated differently, they are judged differently, and they are different from everybody else. For example, the Chinese/Japanese couldn't migrate to the Americas for 30 years because of racism. Also, the fact that you can pick them out of a crowd quickly (due to how they look).
