    Haha how funny. Americans who are actually leftovers from Europe are actually upset because their 'language' is not spoken and their 'culture' overseen. If you haven't realized it yet, there is European influences all over the US . French, Dutch, German, Italian, Irish, Scottish etc. American culture is just distorted parts of other countries mixed with football and jingoism. So don't get into a fuss and start taking history class.

    The coca cola commercial during the superbowl was beautiful, and perfectly showed what it really means to be an American. It's outrageous that people are being "offended" by something like this that's really not offensive at all. This video perfectly explains why they're wrong and how the commercial was in fact, a really great commercial. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0a4jTgwD5U

    I don't understand why people are upset. America is a nation made up of multiple nationalities. Maybe we should stop pretending all Americans are Anglo-Saxons.

    Yes, it is made up of multiple nationalities. Nobody minds that others speak their native tongue. In fact, E Pluribus Unum is Latin. It means "out of many, one" It can't become "one" unless the many assimilate to American culture. This advertisement is regressive to American culture. In order for a nation to progress, it's foreign citizens must support American culture. We are a MELTING POT, not a distillery. We can't become "one" if the ingredients curdle.

    Whenever the liberal-guiltridden-society attempts to diversify something they throw up a white woman and a black man together.They try to push their multicultural dreck on the american public to seperate the white race.Divide and conquer---Isolate and Destroy.They've been doing it since the special civil rights movement.The result is whites (men and women) hating each other...reject and resist the social engineering whites or the white race will go the way of the dinosaur.White is right.

    White on!

    Why don't you white yourself on to another country. We no longer need people like you keeping us from progress.

    If people actually paid attention to our American culture they would realize we are not like other countries. We are a big melting pot. Look at your ancestry. Most of you are Irish or Italian or Asian etc. And just because our main language is English doesn't mean everyone speaks it. Since we are a melting pot some people still speak Italian or German or Spanish etc. The fact that so many people made a huge deal out of this proves the fact that other countries laugh at our education system. People from outside our country know more about us than we do about ourselves. It's embarrassing.

    Yes, we are a MELTING pot. Not a distillation pot. In order for the melting pot to melt, assimilation is necessary. The phrase in this country that everyone is so familiar with is E Pluribus Unum. Latin, meaning Out Of Many, One. In order to become "ONE", you must become part of the culture. Even the common phrase itself is in another language, we don't have a problem with other languages being spoken. The problem is not learning our language. It would have been a MUCH better commercial if those people went from singing it in their language, to singing it in English. Proving they are making the effort to become American.

    Yeah, right so that you would now making fun of foreigners not speaking english correctly instead of realizing that this ad also helped the world understand this song americans hold dear! But they should have known you'd be too close-minded to get it!
