razilian BImmigrations contributes to America in many ways. Let me take you back to the early times when the Americas where just developing, when Columbus found the new world in which we call today the united states of America. Although he found what we call America, Columbus is also responsible for finding America, he is also responsible locating slaves as well. Finding these African Americans as we call them today open a can of worms to how America is now shaped into as we know, which has become so diverse. Africans were then brought to the Americas as indentured servants at first, but that shortly changed after awhile. African Americans were made into permanent slaves without any hope of freedom. Slaves were made to do jobs that an average or poor white man didn't want to do such as work in the fields, picking cotton, working on the plantations, and tending to the process of picking sugar cane. What the slaves did wasn't just slavery but in a way they build America with their own bear hands, sweat, and tears.

Lets attack the key point on what some of these cultures brought along with then. Haitians that immigrated to the Americas brought in their strong belief of Christianity, their favorite side dish such as griot which consist of pork, plantains, and lettuce. The Italians brought in what we call today pizza ,and who don't love or enjoy eating pizza. The Chinese brought Chinese food and I love eating Chinese food. I gave you a couple nationalities that you see in America and what they have thrown in the melting pot. I only gave you a couple because there are way more other ways other ethnic groups contribute to America. The ethnic groups I explained in the previous sentences are also responsible for putting in their customs or their way of life in their home country into the America melting pot. For example Haitians customs on what to serve during ceremonial events such as weddings where
