The prevailing culture is American, and it has told the world it is greater than any other. A sane person would want to identify with that notion and reject the inferior one.
Unfortunately all of it is a destructive and almost irreparable lie. In fact, the European has barely maintained his own ethnicity except for a few holidays to celebrate. They may eat their national foods, or attend religious ceremonies surrounded by their own ethnic groups, they may even speak their native tongue in their homes, but it is more ceremonial.
The idea was to create a melting pot where all the rocks melted down to a this soup of a new culture and identity, and out of this sprung the American. The American prevailed, ethnicity went to the back burner.
To rob anyone of their ethnicity, white black or brown, is genocide. It creates a mental destabilization and robs a person of their cultural barring that keeps them grounded in an identity, a self knowing so to speak.
While people may want to focus on how the African was robbed of his heritage, that robbery was and is pervasive in American culture.
