Shared Heritage

Image Cowboy Vs Indian While some countries have a uniform cultural society, such as the Netherlands and Japan, both Canada and the United States have rich multicultural landscapes founded upon Germanic and Celtic traditions. The U.S. and Canada are remarkable examples of multicultural countries which equally struggle and benefit from the diversity of their societies. Assimilation has often been difficult for the host country as well as for the immigrant but the respect and courtesy with which migrants have assimilated has allowed these countries to embrace foreign cultures and to guide the uninformed.

This forum will allow us to talk about the cultures we have roots in as well as those we have experienced. Curious and sometimes fascinating differences between cultures include food, clothing, gestures, facial expressions, and idioms. Religion is also a significant part of culture and comments or stories of how one's religion has shaped or impacted society are welcomed. To kick off with some Americana culture: Ladies and Gentlemen, The Violent Femmes:

Yes.  It's really cool the people I've met.

It's what you normally refer to as, "Saturday Night".

Hello, I found you guys and looking to make new friends.  I have hosted exchange students for many years now and recently started hosting couchsurfers.  I have a very broad view on culture now, and I would like to interact with others who may share some of the same values.

RD.

I haven't been to Florida for awhile. Thanks for sharing. Could you tell me some of the characteristics of the culture in the backwoods? Also, along with Cuban refugees, how else has Spanish culture pervaded your area of Florida. Thanks again, New Yorkers tend to forget Florida is not where old couples go to retire.

Great group idea Raidan.

I'm from the US, Midwest - now living in Chicago. My family is romany (kalderasha) on one side, and irish on the other. We grew up without much benefit from this heritage, but it is there regardless.

My current neighborhood is extremely multi-cultural, encompassing south east asians, east asians, eastern europeans, africans, and latino populations (even within my block). My area of town is even known as Little Seoul, and offers the unique gem of a strip club, right next to a store selling burka and hijab.

Welcome to Multicultural Men! Where are you from? Would you consider your country/state multicultural or monocultural?
