Not really. We've had a lot of "groups" in America. Everybody assimilates. Even the Jews assimilated to (and in the process changed) the mainstream culture, which they never had before anywhere else. The only ones who never really assimilated were African-Americans, who (until recently) were not allowed to, and American Indians, who (some of them, anyway) did not want to (nevertheless, you probably have some Amerind ancestors in you'e tree if you're a "white" Old American).
