Assimilation Brings Lower Status for Minorities - Assimilation

Gale Opposing Viewpoints In Context...

People of color have a very different immigrant experience than their white counterparts. Historically, those who were not white Anglo-Saxons, such as Europeans, assimilated by accepting the rules and identifying with white culture. They ultimately became an indistinguishable part of that culture. On the contrary, people of color, including blacks, Asians, Hispanics and Native Americans, find that when they assimilate, they do not become a part of successful America. Assimilation itself causes these people to remain impoverished and marginalized; the cultural niche awaiting them is one of low status and inequality. Even gaining an education has broadened the gap between them and similarly educated Americans.
