Don't fall into the melting pot

The United States of America is often called "The Great Melting Pot" society. But anyone with their eyes half open can see that everyone doesn't really melt, and when you don't, you're exiled out of the bowl and trashed. Who needs to melt anyway? People from all different cultures and backgrounds reside in America, and their cultural traditions should be preserved, not melted away into a fondue skewed version of life called the American Dream.

Don't get me wrong, I live in the U.S., and I generally love it, but I'd rather we be called "The Great Salad Bowl" of society. A situation where different people provide different elements that compliment each other, rather than different people being forced to all look, act, and think the same way - exiling those who don't fit the mold.

Acknowledging and appreciating everyone for their differences, rather than attempting to forcefully "melt" the differences away would do wonders to sooth the racial and cultural divisions in society today.
