Australia is regarded as one of the most multi-cultural countries in the world so being a modern Australian means respecting our diverse cultural backgrounds, including indigenous Australians.

In Brad Paisley's song American Saturday Night a great deal about the cultural diversity in America is seen throughout the song. In the chorus specifically Paisley lists several things that "make America great" as a whole. American is just a big melting pot of so many cultures, religions, and different people from all over the globe. I think this song does just that in representing what America really is.
