Consider the Latin phrase on the seal of the United States:  E Pluribus Unum.  It means "out of many, one."  American society is just that--this country is a mixture of races, creeds, and nationalities.  America is unique in world history in that all of these people have the same set of laws and opportunity is not limited to those of a particular ethnicity.  You can also say that one of the themes in American history has been Americans trying to make the motto on the great seal more of a reality to the people.  This country has dealt with slavery, segregation, internment camps, Indian reservations, and marriage issues.  American society is hard to summarize briefly, but I think your paper would be best if you looked at America's attempts to make the society fair for all of its citizens.
