You did not answer my question.

You are saying immigrants should conform and assimilate to "American culture".

What specifically would that entail?

Going to McDonalds 3 times a week?

Lets get this straight...I don't make implications but I'm completely explicit about what I mean and what I say.

I never said that whites were being racist and if I felt they were being racist I will come right out and say it.

This isn't a case of racism, but rather a case of a traditionally powerful people trying to keep what they have and not wanting to give it up.

I've already stated that ANY race would feel similarly embattled.

Calm down.

I clearly did. I never said anything about not learning about other cultures.

And please refrain form asking me if I hate people and our country. That is something that is said when one can no longer provide a viable argument.

Actually, it's good practice to make sure you are using correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation in English. Especially, since, you are vociferous in that every single foreigner living in the US speak in fluent English in just a few years

No you defined Assimilation. You did not provide examples of how one should assimilate to American culture.
