    Obama's bow vs. Latino in America vs. "Made in China"

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     omekongo is adding to the discussion with EWillies1961, Liberty1955 and GSandeen.
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    Post asserts that it is hypocritical to say that Obama must preserve American culture and strength overseas and then say people who come to America must abandon their culture and speak only English and practice a mainstream American religion. Furthermore, we should pay more attention to how we bow politically and economically to countries like China everyday. Case in point: all of us posting comments are doing it on products that weren't even made in America. Maintaining our economic status is more important than the President respecting cultures overseas. If you want him to preserve American culture outside of our borders, why don't we respect the cultures of those who come here? If you're a businessman doing business in Japan, you learn to bow. Why is it wrong then for the President? Come on people. We can do better and talk about something productive...
