5 Ethnic Groups That Prove the First Humans Were Black
10 This essay defines "ethnicization" as "the unification of fragmented immigrant groups around shared cultural symbols such as language or religion," following Mary Patrice Erdmans,Opposite Poles: Immigrantsand Ethnicsin Polish Chicago, 1976-1990 (University Park, Pa., 1998),4. Historians have paid relatively little attention to the role of ethnic languages in the "invention of ethnicity": see, for example, Kathleen Neils Conzen et al., "The Invention of Ethnicity: A Perspective from the U.S.A.," journal ofAmericanEthnic History, 12 (Fall 1992), 3-42; Werner Sollors, ed., The Invention ofEthnicity (New York, 1989); and Werner Sollors, BeyondEthnicity: Consentand Descent in American Culture(New York, 1986). A recent and important exception is Sollors, ed., MultilingualAmerica.

As the Polish example illustrates, meanwhile, these same languages were frequently foreign-not native-to the very foreigners who were urged to study them. Italian newcomers spoke Sicilian or Neapolitan, not the florid Italian of school textbooks; Germans used "Germerican," a combination of English and German; most Jews conversed in Yiddish, reserving Hebrew for religious services; and Norwegian immigrants developed a dialect that was so "polluted"-in the words of one critic-that recent arrivals from Norway could not comprehend it." This evidence undermines the second popular narrative about foreign-language instruction in America, which emphasizes immigrants' willful abandonment of allegedly ancestral languages." Whereas the theory of patriotic coercion imagines a unitary "Anglo" power that blotted out foreign-language communities, the theory of immigrant voluntarism presumes that these communities were themselves linguistically united. They were not. Instead, ethnic leaders promoted a single language while ethnic citizens clung to a wide variety of local and regional ones.?
