I actually think this is sad. Immigrants & minorities are always expected to ‘fit in’ & ‘Americanize’ themselves when they arrive in the US. But why should they? American culture is the dominant culture but it’s also boring (and I’m a US citizen living in Ireland all my life). Each culture should be proud to stand out & flaunt how different they are. Diversity is what makes life interesting. Who wants to be another American kid like every else?! Be proud of your accent & your traditional dishes! 😄👍🏻
