Library: 'Salad Bowl' Analogy for Modern Life

August 25, 1994

After I read the article, "Accusations of Racism Plague Monterey Park Library Board" on July 28, I was totally appalled. The American dream is not dead for anyone coming to this country in search of better opportunities, but the melting pot is no longer an appropriate statement; we are a "salad bowl" where each of us is unique and contributes to this society and our communities in different ways.

Unfortunately, (Kathleen) Brzozowski's comments on Marina Tse are so racially motivated that it is discouraging for those of us who believe that pluralism and diversity are ingredients for a society rich in culture(s). Marina Tse is the co-founder of the Multicultural Community Assn. in which all ethnic groups work together to promote inter-group relations in our community, and we need more committed people like her in our communities.
