I say salad bowl. Melting Pot implies that races are dispersed homogeneously. They are clearly not.

You are aware this is about culture and not race, right? And usually regarding immigrants?
But, yes, neither are homogeneous, but I know of plenty of individuals of different races, that all seem "American" in terms of culture.

So, I'd say more of a stew.
My work here is, finally, done.

Aye, but you have to remember that some parts of society want full "integration" nevertheless I agree with you.
