請高手看得懂得幫忙一下!!不用貼線上翻譯的了~~ 那誤差很大謝謝!!!~~For many years, sociologists and historians have referred to the United States as a cultural “melting pot,” in order to suggest the successful integration into American society of the massive waves of immigration which have marked American history. This term has been primarily a complimentary one, implying that immigrants invariably embrace not only American ideals, but a pervasive “American” culture. Also, the term suggests that American immigrants successfully leave behind the turmoil of their home countries which has caused them to come to the United States, thus “melting” into American society. However, in recent years, this term has lost much of its popularity, primarily because of an increasing emphasis on diversity among ethnic groups. Ironically, this emphasis springs from another American ideal, strong individuality. Instead, many prefer to refer to the U.S. as a “salad bowl,” viewing each of the many ethnic groups in America as a component of a salad, thus preserving its own identity in the salad, but, at the same time, interacting with the other vegetables to create a delightful mix and variety. Certainly the term makes a great deal of sense with regard to geography, as ethnic distribution in the United States is hardly uniform. New York, with its Chinatown and Little Italy, is an excellent example of this separation. However, the term is primarily used with reference to the various cultures and sensibilities of ethnic groups in the U.S.
