Durga PaudelEnglish 1AProf. Phil Redmon9/26/18The Cult of Ethnicity; Good or BadThe article written by Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. “The Cult of Ethnicity” was originally published by the Time Magazine in 1991 and later published it in his 1992 book called The Disuniting of America. In this Article I believe Schlesinger’s main argument in this article is that American’s mixture of races and cultures has worked, due the creation of single race. However, he argues that “the cult of ethnicity”, which consists of individuals that refuse to assimilate to theAmerican way, are creating problems in America. Near the beginning of the article, Schlesinger gives some examples how “ethnicity is breaking up nations. The Soviet Union, India, Yugoslavia, Ethiopia are all in crisis”(Schlesinger 135), by giving this example he was trying to say that we are not the only one country who facing this problem. The cult of ethnicity has broken up the nations like Soviet Union, India, Yugoslavia and many other countries as well.
