However the rise of multiculturalism has forced the assimilations of many different cultures. Through multiculturalism countries like Australia have been able to demonstrate a high level of social inclusion. Other countries like the US have shown a low level of social inclusion.

In his article titled “Ethnic Minorities”, Author Harris Chaiklin began by defining ethnic minorities as a group of people who differ from the dominant group of the country in which they live. This difference may be due to race, nationality, religion, or culture. This differing identity held by the minority can be displayed in several different ways, ranging from distinctive customs, lifestyles, language, accent, manor of dress, their preference in food, attitudes, moral values, or even in their political beliefs. Although many countries have difficulty in assimilating with minority groups, Chaiklin described the United States as being one of the countries throughout the world successful in ethnic mixing. Many people describe America as the great melting pot, meaning we are a heterogeneous or diverse society.
Williams and Hutchinson’s unusual view showed that the Puritans were in fact able to be diverse despite being known for their conservative nature. Although we are not as strict as the Puritans were, we as Americans still struggle with people wanting to be different. Some groups and religions can be very harsh towards others. Co-existence is possible though. In just the tri-state area, there are many different religions and cultures that exist.

When examining racial identity in America, it can be said that it has become institutionalized. It shows up in our everyday life, appearing in both the sociopolitical and economic spheres of life. America has demonstrated an obsession with categorizing people on the basis of their race, and has imposed these ideas on immigrants who come to live in this country. Many immigrants, especially from Latin America, have different notions of race, and may not share the same ideas as Americans. Their opinions may vary because of many factors, such as familial or societal influence.
Just taking the multicultural country of The United States of America, one can see that Individuals from state to state have different views about racism. Not only is this horrid view of someone that is skin deap different per-state, it is also
Language prejudice and racism in the United States is an extremely serious problem. Many people may not be aware how much language prejudice and racism are there still exist in our schools, workplaces, and anywhere else around people in their life. Americans as the number one immigrant country, there are people with all different skin colors, languages, religions, culture, and everyone should accept and respect each other.

Sometimes, not only what people do show prejudice but the words they use to describe people have some underground meanings of prejudice and racism.
It not only taught me about the way others treat each other, but it also changed the way I will treat others in life going on. People as a whole, have different prejudices and those prejudices can affect how we treat each other and grow as a whole. In life, I believe that accepting everyone for who they are, regardless of race, religion or creed is necessary. America, in itself is a big melting pot. There are many people with different views, backgrounds and heritage’s that need to be respected.
In Puerto Rico, we have all types of different races and religions just like the United States but we all accept each other and our differences. Once I moved here I noticed that I was classified a specific race instead of being just a normal Puerto Rican
However, many people respond negatively towards immigrants. They’re biased against them due to race and undisciplined actions, especially to the Mexicans. People should see immigrants as a whole, not as an individual. If you were put in a spotlight of an immigrant and were treated poorly, what would you do? If you get arrested due to an assumption that you’re an illegal immigrant, how would you respond?
Therefore, once the voters discern that the current status quo is unproductive, they seek another path to follow to tackle these inefficiencies. Since our nation prides itself on the two-party system, voters really do not have the choice but to turn to
