I believe that the Cosby Show and Good Times really changed how the typical American Family was viewed. I think this was a major turning point in our culture because it caused our culture to be viewed in a much broader sense. I think the shows of the 1990’s gave people a look at the imperfect lower-middle class family, which also broadened our views on what the American Family looks like. I personally really like Roseanne because I can really relate to the type of household the show depicts. Today, in 2016 I think the American Family is depicted in so many different ways that we being an entire country is seen as one community, even though there are so many different ethnicities and cultures in the United States.
Indentured servants and convicts were brought to the new world to escape punishment and perform labor. America’s diversity has helped recognize the individual and created a strong culture with many intellectual achievements. Today, America is one of the most diverse countries in the world. Full of different races and religions some arriving hundreds of years ago, while others arriving later on in history. Overall From These Beginnings, Black People in a White People’s Country, and The Transformation of European Society show how the nation has become a diverse
why do we need to be told that we are diverse? America is the leading country for immigrants. America has always been about diversity and different culture/races coming together to make up one beautiful country. Why is it wrong to not have the need to showcase it around every corner? I understand that people want to know the statistics to see if they
Bush, the Democrats considered several issues to tackle for the election season. With the bipartisan support from previous bills and the success that Massachusetts was achieving from their legislation, the Democrats chose to campaign on a national issue of health care reform. During the 2008 Democratic primary, the two top nominees were Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. They both campaigned on an insurance plan to cover all Americans. They did have a difference in their plans: Hillary chose a plan that would require all American to acquire insurance coverage as an individual mandate.
“America is not just a country, it’s an idea” -Bono. America, where millions from around the world have come to create their ideal community. America was formed, and is constantly being altered by the people who run it. Many countries look at America as a standard, a standard to which they compare themselves, but why? Why is America so sought after, and how did it come to be this way?
When the world thinks of America, many think about our famous football or our beautiful statue of liberty. When really America stands for equality and hope. Charles B. Rangel once said, “The promise of the American Dream requires that we are all provided an equal opportunity to participate and contribute to our nation.” I believe that if one will risk their life to come live the American dream and try to help their family, they deserve to be in the home of the free. I agree with the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents policy, also known as DAPA. I believe the policy, DAPA would help our economy increase.
I believe they were gifted with imaginations far superior to yours and mine. Those dreams became reality, and because of that reality, now anyone else’s dreams can become a reality here in this beautiful country. In America, we are victorious. Eagles that soar. I understand every other country has a strong sense of patriotism as well but I can’t help but feel that their patriotism is nothing compared to ours because in America we have many things to be proud of, but our hope is the largest of our
I believe that we are the ultimate interpretation of democracy and the result is that we are free to make our dreams a reality. America is the land full of possibilities where a penny can be turned into a dime with just hard work and perseverance. Being an American is all about taking advantage of the freedom of opportunities given to you. We offer a wide selection of opportunities that many places around us do not offer. Not every citizen takes these advantage, but those who do strive in the most marvelous way possible all thanks to the freedom given to us.
As a country at its core the United States was built upon immigrants. These people came from all over the world seeking the American dream. Germans, Irishmen, Italians, Russians, Africans, everyone from all corners of the world, and that’s what built this country. It wasn’t just the almighty so called superior white race of Americans. This country was built on the laboring backs of the immigrants that brought over their entire lives.
If America remains the land of hope, then people of all classes, color, gender, and race will be given the chances to excel and to improve standards of living. The nation would encourage creative differences to give birth to innovative ideas and inventions, promoting growth. I pray that future America will continue to strive to win the incessant fight for equality of liberty. The recent legalization of gay marriage across all the fifty states of the country since June 2015 can be a representation of a battle towards the fair treatment of all people. The nation I envision is compassionate and open-minded, one that will respect heterosexual marriages and transgender culture, embracing all differences and similarities alike.
