Assimilation???

This video is somewhat alarming, but not unusual for new immigrants coming into the country. I live in Chicago and over the past seventy years I have seen neighborhoods similar to this one in Dearborn with some exceptions. The signage was in Polish, Italian, German, and most recently Mexican. People who come into our country need to live near other people of their own nationality. Think about it, if you were suddenly dropped into an area of Iraq and had to learn the language, read the strange alphabet, assimilate into their culture how would you like it. Most likely, you would want to live in there American village with all the other Americans. Do you think the Iraqi’s would welcome you with open arms? Most likely, they would be hollering and screaming at you to get the hell out. Also not an easy thing to take. Assimilation takes time, learning a new language takes time, learning your way around the block takes time, finding food you can eat all takes an effort. None of it is easy.

What seems to be different with the Muslim immigrant is an Imam preaching not to assimilate. All of the kids I went to school with were pushed by their parents to learn the language, and to learn in school. My brother learned to speak English in grammar school. My sister and I learned from him, my parents learned from us, and from English classes for immigrants. There wasn’t a single nationality that harbored a hatred for America. Every Mexican I know is a friend. I love them as a people. They love America, they learn the language, they work hard, and they want to be your friend.

I would love to be alive a hundred years from now to see just how this new world works out.
