Yes, there is variation of languages, religions, ect., but this is part of our culture.
The melting pot is indeed still present. Look around man. How many hispanics, blacks, middle eastern, european, asian ect. people do you have around you. The USA is a brewery of sorts. It holds all the ingredients that make up the "culture" that you speak of. Yet, all are sharing thier habitation here, in this country, it was thier family's origin, thier customs that they grew up with. If you were to look several hundred years into the future, our melting pot would consist of a more balance society, refering to customs.
Gotta get to class.........discuss later....
