To Assimilate or Not To Assimilate

An immigrant has to make a lot of decisions when choosing to migrate to America, but once here, a different set of choices emerges. One of those decisions is whether or not to assimilate into American culture. The choice to fully (or kind of or not at all) incorporate one’s self into American culture is a personal decision full of public opinion. In this episode, J & A delve into what it takes as an Asian American to assimilate into American culture and how African American people can relate.
