I was scared because I didn’t know anybody besides a few uncles. I knew that in USA people speak another language but I was just staring to learn it on my country and it was hard. I just didn’t feel ready to meet United States yet. However I knew that I didn’t have another option, so I decide to try my best and make my parents proud of me. Some of my goals were to learn English, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to communicate and succeed as an immigrant.
Rodriguez realized that living in America meant that he would have to become fluent in English despite the culture of his family because it was the only way he could become a legit member of the American society. Richard Rodriguez dramatic Americanization affected his relationship with his family because while pursuing his public identity, which was becoming an English speaker and a permanent member of the American society, meant that he would lose the connection that he had with his family when he was only speaking Spanish.

This embarrasses Gogol so he is constantly trying to compensate by blending in with Americans. One of the main issues holding him back from being Indian under the radar is his name. It is different and does not go unnoticed which is why he begins to resent the name, his parents for choosing it, and ultimately everything that makes him different from other Americans. This is the main conflict that hangs over the Ganguli household, but it is manifested in smaller day-to-day conflicts. Gogol is teased about his name, his parent’s want him to identify with an aspect of Bengali culture, but he resists, the parents want to visit India, and Gogol and Sonia complain and feel their summer is ruined, Gogol has romantic relationships that his parents don’t understand, and finally Gogol moves away and changes his name, and barely keeps up with his parents.

Native Americans face many issues that threaten their safety even in this modern day society. are not safe, even in our modern-day society. They are used as objects and are displayed as a ‘good luck charm’ for many college universities and sports teams. According to the article, Native American mascots bring more negativity than the luck they are supposed to bring, “…(1) they [mascots] reflect and reinforce stereotypes, (2) they harm Native Americans, and (3) Native Americans do not have control over them,” (IMHTNA).
The most importance cause of culture shock is the different language being used. As we know, there are more than 60 different languages in this world and each language has different dialect in difference place. To live in a new environment comfortably, one needs to have the ability of communicating easily with people around him. Language made it quite difficult to communicate. We may think that they can always use English to communicate around, but what will happen if one move to a country where the people there does not understand English.
They problem with this is that most teams and clubhouses don’t care about the Native Americans. This is an issue that needs to change very soon because this is offensive to many people. Many people stereotype against Indians and are rude and insensitive. These stereotypes are rude, such as All Indians live in Teepees and them all hunt buffalo.

Illegal aliens shouldn’t be rewarded with legal status and other benefits. Most Americans don’t want immigrants in their country because they take the jobs away form them. American citizens have different Pros and Cons about immigration topic like Amnesty, Deportation, Mexican Border Fence, Driver Licenses for illegal aliens. Most all of the states don’t allow immigrants to get a drivers license with the right paper work.

One big mistake they did was not to be able to make clear decisions, they always said they were not the government so they could not made definite decisions, this made people lose credibility on them. It was never an issue for them all they strikes and demands people were making, they knew how bad were the living conditions in Russia but they did not do anything about it, this made them loose many supporters. Since the beginning the working class was force to go to war, the provisional government did not wanted to end the war. In Russia all the food was sent to the soldiers in war so there wasn't any food in the city for the people, like nearly all mens were in war there were very few people working on the land so the railways wasn't big enough to carry food to the cities and the war at the same time. Russians weren't lucky in the war, they were losing it but the provisional government force the soldiers to stay in war so this created anger in the people because all their
Americans are Immigrants The twenty-first century in the most advanced country in the world is proving to be one of the most controversial in the history of this United States of America. This country was formed by immigrants from all over the world, and yet, many citizens are attempting to close the doors to most people who are still trying to reap some of the benefits the United States of America has to offer. The United States as a whole, as well as the originating countries, has benefited from the effects of immigration. While some of the effects have been considered detrimental to the US, the benefits far outweigh the detriments. This subject has been one of concern for quite some time, with no real resolution.
When immigrants move to a new destination they struggle to adapt to the environment because they tend to shy away from their cultural background. They adapt to the so called “American culture”. Truth is I don’t believe there is such a thing as the American culture. The United States has been called a melting pot because, over the centuries, people from many different countries and cultures have come to reside here. Despite being held on high standards people still discriminate against different cultures, because of this we run away from culture and we never fully live and understand the importance of culture.
