choose which metaphor, melting pot or salad bowl, you think is best for the united states and explain why.
I said melting pot because:
- people from different cultures marry and have children
- people from different cultures assimilate into our country
- some learn the ways of other cultures
- we mix different aspects of cultures (clothing, food, language, etc.)
I'm not sure if I'm leaving anything out. It has to be about one paragraph... any suggestions please?
After a generation or two, with families intermarrying and adapting to other cultural traditions, the U.S. is like a melting pot. It's difficult to separate the mixtures into separate pots.
