I wouldn't say 'embrace', we don't force anybody to embrace American culture. Nobody forces immigrants to eat hot-dogs, attend church, or go to baseball games.

I would say 'respecting' or 'tolerating'. The fact is here in America we DO eat pork.

No you moved here for our culture, if not then why did you leave your paradise?????

Yeah so either like it or leave no one forced you to come here but we should start forcing some to leave. This isn't the beginning anymore and these immigrants are not like the ones of the past, so don't give me that this country was built on immigrants last time I checked every country in the world was.

(when I say you I do not mean you in particular mmarsh)

Apparently you don't follow American news as much as you like to think. The whole Californian Atheist trying to get all sorts of religious things out of school, in the name of his daughter...

Funny thing I bet they all take Christmas off....

All of this talk has made me go out and make a nice ham sandwich. I guess I'll have to sue all you blokes for making me overweight.

This is just ridiculous. If I was the kid who placed the ham sandwich I'd be laughing my ass off at the Somalis for being scared of pork. Then I'd enjoy my suspension.

No offense taken, I am not an immigrant, born and raised in the Big Apple.

Usually for economic reasons. Sometimes political, my Mom moved to the USA for love (at least I hope it was love ). Some people accept the culture, some don't. Here in Europe we have the same problem, new immigrants that arrive for the benefits, but don't wish to make the effort in order to adapt.

You might remember the Islamic headscarf controversy in France, case in point.

By embracing American culture it doesn't mean you HAVE to eat hotdogs and pork. In fact, choosing not to and going totally vegetarian is also American.
I think trying to punish someone for doing something that is not allowed in your culture but allowed in theirs qualifies as cultural intollerance, especially when in the US of A, eating a piece of pork is totally okay.

Yeah, right on the target.

I'm curious, I live in Texas. And many Mexicans came here for jobs but not to embrace it.

As this proper thread, that was just stupid.

Yeah, It's sad ain't it.

If there is one piece of American culture I will never understand, it is this modern penchant for taking people to court because they are too damn lazy to get out and earn themselves a living. Sorry Guys it just gets right up my nose, because our lawyers are now steering the same course here, encouraging everyone to sue whoever they can.
