The dominant culture in America is the culture that everyone believes to be superior to others. The dominant culture in current American society is English speaking white Protestants. People who fit that mold are more prone to more job opportunities or better paying jobs as well as education. And because this is "their country" everyone is expected to know English.

-- In the post war era the dominant culture in America were thought to be heroes who would fight off the new found evil. Even following through now the dominant culture has much pride and ego.
