This paper addresses the concern alluded to by Arthur M. Schlesinger regarding the tendency of ethnic groups in America to place greater emphasis on their diversity than on their unity. The paper addresses Schlesinger's question about what the American identity will become in the face of all this diversity and concludes that, in spite of the emphasis on diversity, Americans will always value their identity as Americans more highly than their differences.
From the Paper:"Where we shall seek the answers to our problem of what shall an American therefore become is the keystone issue to be confronted. Shall we seek it within our specified group? Or, perhaps in a classroom format as Schlesinger aptly suggests? Or, perhaps one should seek the answers to these myriad problems beginning within our own mind? Or, is a combination of these and several other approaches perhaps a better way? Indeed, there are many avenues to follow in the quest of defining what an American shall become in the future."
