Pluralism in the United States

By Kazim Alam

I bought two copies of The Courant today — and gave one to Sherrie. We were sitting on the farm, watching the polo match, when she finished reading my article.

“What do you mean by pluralism?” she asked.

I said pluralism meant that one could be Jewish and still expect to be assimilated into the mainstream American society. It means that one can be Muslim, and yet become a successful, rich businessman in the United States.

It means that Obama can belong to a minority and still be elected as the country’s president.

Sherrie liked my answer.
