There's such a delicate balance between being a coherent yet diverse culture and becoming fractured and hating the other pieces. I think we're still figuring that out and aren't there yet. I think people just don't want all these different americas smashing into one another and laying on top of each other. the way its set up now, lots of people are just offended or threatened or ignorant. I would never tell someone to be more like me or not be themselves. I want to learn how to work together, how to be respectful of everyone without sacrificing anything about myself, and I ask nothing more than the same from others.
