Interestingly enough the Somali kid interviewed says ”his culture” doesn’t allow for anyone to hit a female, while it’s ”his culture” that is embedded in the Koran, hadiths and sunna of Mohamed that allows for a husband to beat his wife. What he’s actually saying is, non-Muslims cannot touch a Muslim female. Also, here we come face to face with ”multiculturalism” in the raw.
There is no this or that culture in America, there is the American culture, and the melting pot of different ethnicities that blend themselves into the frabric of American culture and society.It’s entirely up to the person and the community that individual chooses to reside in to place whatever emphasis on traditions and holidays deemed important, but it doesn’t compete, let alone override the host culture.
NOTE: It’s interesting to see Somalis being called ”Somali Americans” by a Black American referring to himself as an African. Multiculturalism epic fail.
