There was a time when the united states was known as the melting pot of the world. In fact when my wife took her naturalization citizenship test, she was taught there is not such thing as a hyphened American, we are all Americans regardless of where we came from or what race, color or creed. But that has changed, I do not think we are the melting pot anymore, we now have African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, Asian-Americans, Native-Americans and a couple of more I probably forgot about. We have went from a goal of including everyone and everybody as Americans to segregating us once more into groups. Instead of uniting one and all, we are once again dividing.
