Hyperdiversity in a Modern State (California)?

How did hyperdiversity raised questions of cultural assimilation vs. cultural preservation?


California has not had a specific culture in modern times. It's original culture was wiped out by the Spanish Conquistadors. Flowing that, they were Mexican, which predominates today. Questions of cultural assimilation vs preservation are media hyped propaganda. California is even less diverse in modern times than it was in the past. The only culture that has ever predominated in California is, "Live and let live".
