This paper discusses the understanding of different cultures through a case study of the Greek-American community. It discusses history of the Greeks in America, conflicts between the Greek Orthodox and Roman Catholic Church, as well as Greek stereotypes. The paper was written for a class on cultures and uses terms, such as pluralism, ethnocentrism, and co-cultures. It explores facets of Greek-American culture, including gender roles, Greek identities, and the history of the Greek-American experience.

From the Paper:

"Despite these problems, pluralism is the accepted practice in the United States. People naturally form groups with other people who are similar to them. Rich people play golf together often, just like bookworms form book clubs with one another. In fact this form of group making is taught throughout school. The first thing we do is place a student in his or her grade level. They are encouraged to spend time with their peers, only. If they stray from their group it is not considered normal."
