The beauty of America is you can be what you want. If you want to be an 'American' you are welcome to and there is no ethnicity requirement preventing you. If you want to retain your heritage/ethnic roots and not assimilate, you can do that too as America is an immigrant country. You may even be able to live in your ethnic community and even more reinforce your heritage and not assimilate. In Europe, it's a bit different. Either you are native of that country or not. Hard to assimilate without being connected to that country via your ethnic roots/blood. Hence immigrants can be more marginalised. If it wasn't for the politics, I would like America much more!
