Assimilation and Pluralism in Muskegon Michigan's Latin American Population
MetadataShow full item record
Ethnic groups are constantly beset with the difficulties of assimilation versus cultural pluralism. The purpose of the following inquiry is to investigate these conflicts and how they operate in the dealings of an ethnic community. What forces in the population advocate further integration and assimilation and which press for pluralistic preservation of Latino heritage? Given these forces, what are the chances of constructing a supportative Latino community? These questions form the basis of the paper. Discussion of the working terms of assimilation and pluralism is needed. A brief history of the Latino population precedes the body of the paper which contains the major forces influencing assimilation and pluralism. Following each of the divisions is a summary of the effects it exerts on assimilation and pluralism in Muskegon. How these forces act in influencing the overall direction of assimilation or pluralism is considered in the conclusion.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
