Sald Bowl or Melting Pot
In the text Bucher spends quite some time talking about assimilation and pluralism. He talks about how assimilation can be thought about as a “melting pot’ where dimensions of diversity melt together and disappear. He compares pluralism to the idea of a ‘salad bowl’ where the differences remain in tact and together make the whole. Write a 1-page response where you consider the benefits and limitations of both the “melting pot’ and ‘salad bowl’ mentality Bucher discussgs. Is one fight and one wrong? Does it depend? If so, on what?
