Identity

Reader comment on item: American Muslims vs. American Jews

Submitted by Joshua Kaufman (United States), May 27, 2010 at 18:01

During my years at Cornell, I thought that the issue of identity in politics were really stalwart. I say that you just get rid of them, although I feel strongly of my Jewsih identity, I don't let it get in the way of the way I feel about other races like African Americans. Even in the workplace, I try not to let my discomfort get in the way of my daily tasks. Therefore, if you apply this to the question of the American melting pot, we are all one in the same. Regardless of the feelings underneath, like I always feel, it is just necessary to make a socierty.
