Thread: These are the type of problems facing the USA.

  1. #1

    These are the type of problems facing the USA in the future if we continue to allow all these different immigrant groups into this country.

    It's just a little street in Sunnyvale, barely a mile long.

    But when leaders of the Hindu Temple and Community Center asked the city to
    rename Persian Drive as Mandir Drive after the Hindi name for "temple," it sparked an emotional feud of national pride between local Indo- and Iranian-Americans.

    Sunnyvale Mayor Fred Fowler, whose city is suddenly at the center of a
    cultural debate, said the dispute underscores how important seemingly
    innocuous landmarks can be to some ethnic groups.

    "What's in a name? What's so special about some signs?" Fowler said.
    "The
    issue is tangible recognition that the Indian community exists, and
    that
    they have an indelible mark on the city's landscape. What's in a name?
    Well
    a heck of a lot, it turns out."

    Stunned by a sudden outburst of objections by local Iranians, the
    temple
    withdrew its proposal this week, during a drawn-out City Council
    hearing
    that stretched well past midnight. But temple officials still plan to
    pursue their request.

    Both sides say they want a compromise. But they are also equally
    adamant
    that their heritage and cultural contributions somehow be represented
    along
    the non-descript, two-lane road that abuts Highway 237. Persian Drive
    is
    bordered by a soundwall on one side and stretches of wood fencing on
    the
    other. There are no homes or sidewalks and a dozen businesses.

    Temple is sentimental to Indians.Persian is also sentimental to Iranian .But one should find out
    How many Indians and Iranian are staying on that street.what is the population of both the community in Sunnyvale. that should be determine for changing the name. change should be continuos affairs.

    Different ethnic and religous groups cannot live together. Look at the world today. What do you think is causing all the problems? Eventually, the same situation will present itself in the USA. That is why we need to stop immigration.
