Racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity in America

While America was built on ideals of protecting religious and political freedoms, and has grown to protect racial freedoms and identity, we have allowed a national white identity to dictate policy for the remaining minorities.

We must address the changing racial and ethnic diversity of America, and how we can protect culture while promoting a positive space for those cultures, races, and religions we are unfamiliar with.

White nationalism, class segregation, racial suppression, and development of institutionalized limitations on immigration is not a solution, it is only a manifestation of a barrier from those looking to protect ideals of a long-gone era of hatred and suppression. It is not, and will never be, the true face of America.
