Assimilation

Brokaw later said he felt "terrible a part of my comments on Hispanics offended some members of that proud culture."
I possess a Taiwanese birth certificate, a U.S. passport, a German marriage certificate and a Swiss permanent residency card.
"You don’t need to get a PhD and work for NASA, or go to an Ivy, or write a bestseller, or f**k, even 'assimilate' ... to have value as an immigrant."
Austrian Muslims called the move "patronizing" -- especially since most girls don't wear hijabs until puberty.
The formation of dense communities of immigrants throughout the U.S. is not unique to our time period - heck, I think everyone's
Naming her organization “Lesbians Who Tech” was perhaps the boldest thing Leanne Pittsford did when she founded the group
It's not sufficient to know that Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel had a violent relationship with his wife, or that Abdelmalik Petitjean visited Turkey just prior to entering a church in Normandy. What's more important is to understand what they wanted for themselves in the longer term.
Integration of Muslims is a matter of national security for France, indeed of national survival. Jews too have an enormous stake in the outcome of that struggle, in America as well as in France.
The lesson from yet another attack in France is this: Europe needs to change its approach to terrorism -- and fast.
To his adherents in the audience there was no confusion in the choice of language. The power of Trump's rhetoric lay in the
I wonder if Asian Americans will become "white." Every year as we observe Asian American Heritage Month, I meditate on the question. As with almost all such inquiries, I doubt the easy answers, both as predictions and as prescriptions.
I wonder if I am more Asian, specifically Chinese, than I realize. I was reading the new book about applying Chinese philosophy to your own life, and it was more touching than I had expected. As a Chinese American whose parents emigrated from Taiwan more than fifty years ago, I grew up in Detroit.
I typically agree with much of what David Brooks has to say. However, I'm afraid that he was way off the mark with his article "How Covenants Make Us." Demographic diversity in the United States is a good thing. The problem has to do with the lack of integration and assimilation of demographically diverse communities.
The person who is suspicious about the Asian American, whether he deserves the passport he carries thanks to birthright, should not be confused with the Asian American who wants to establish affinity, to confirm the possibility of integration.
My own relationship with my traditions and culture has been the subject of much personal reflection. However in recent years
Americans are more worried and anxious about the future than ever. Sure, every generation seems to think, for one reason or another, that the place is going to hell in a hand basket. This time, it appears to be a unique convergence of a number of things.
The song my sisters liked was "China Girl." They were four beautiful girls -- eminently dateable -- and I was their youngest brother, their pet. They weren't allowed to go off with strange boys. My parents were very strict. But they dated anyway, secretly, and I was their alibi.
Anti-Muslim rhetoric is out of step with reality. Not only are Muslim Americans successfully integrating into US society, they are actually more opposed to intolerance than many other Americans. Nevertheless, many Americans are still succumbing to hysteria. The question is, why?
One of the major dilemmas is that ultra-right wing is raising this issue and has made it a subpart of its broader campaign
