United states is a country with a lot of diversity. This is the place where all the cultures get blended, creating even new cultures. In this country many cultures had blended, but there are some people who are ignorants. They don’t get the idea of combining their cultures with other’s culture, as they think that what their culture has made up for them is perfect and should be respected. All cultures and their people should be respected because all these traditions and cultures get there to contribute somehow to the development of the United States.
In the countries of the opportunities there is always a fight for it. People who thinks their ancestors were originally from the U.S, and don’t have any idea of how many people throughout the years came to start their life over again, claim that all the opportunities that this country offer should be for them. These racist people usually wants foreigners out of the country, without acknowledging how the arrival of these people has being determinant for built up the United States. New York is a good example of several cultures meeting each other, as italians, jews, and people from the caribbean get all together, is important to say this because New York is an important base for the economy of United States. Just as new york most of the states that are considered important for U.S have an incredible cultural blending.

America is greatly influenced and enhanced by the many versatile cultures which inhabit it. Cultural diversity has added to our economy in such a way that it brings innovated ideas and contact structures throughout the world. International cuisines have come to America through subcultures, have expanded the food industry, and have allowed English Americans to try new foods and flavors. Immigrants have brought with them religious values that greatly differ and vary from those at which were natural in the main stream American culture. The educational development through foreign nationals has led America, as a nation, to excel and be deemed one of the most intelligent nations in the world! Consequently, the subcultures have kept our
The United States of America is a perfect example of cultural diversity. Starting with the Mayflower landing in Massachusetts Bay in 1620, to the Great Migration from 1915 to 1930, to the continual immigration into our country today this country has seen its culture grow and reshape itself over the years. The culture of the United States is diverse but understanding and appreciating various cultures does not always exist within today’s classroom or in today’s society. Understanding or even defining cultural diversity , identifying the challenges cultural diversity brings, or how to face cultural diversity are all issues educators face in today’s classroom.
People are born different, and they have their own way of living. God creates us with a lot of differences, and it is not a bad thing because it creates diversity among the society. If we would like to grow as a person, we have to respect others too. When people differentiate themselves from others based on their race, unconsciously we disrespect them. In America, there are a lot of races and cultural differences.
Throughout the world social problems such as illiterate, elderly, handicapped, minority groups, and poverty have been the biggest part in our society for many years. Some of our social problems had died off, meanwhile, they’re still many problem that we are still facing as a society. One of the major social problem we face is people being illiterate. Being illiterate is meaning a person can not read nor write, and it can also mean that a person is grammatically incorrect. There is as much as 23% of the adult population that are ignorant to basic skills of the 4th grade level. In the U.S. the ethnic group that is most affected by not being able to read or write is
The presence of Latinos in the United States challenges the notion of there being only one specific type of American citizen, an English-speaking person who lives only in relation to an "Anglo" heritage. Alongside other minority groups, Latinos tend to believe in the notion that the United States must be made up of one bounded territory, within which people speak a singular language and experience one culture. So, when the Anglo groups are faced with Spanish speaking people who are in touch with their Latino heritage, they feel threatened by the people who can speak both Spanish and English. The response to this sense of threat involves marginalization and the obvious exclusion of Latino groups in the United States. At the
The United States population continues to increase in racial and ethnic diversity, therefore, it is pertinent that mental health professionals tailor their services to the needs of various cultural populations (Constantine, Kindaichi, Arorash, Donnelly, & Jung, 2002). The awareness that ethnic minorities experience negative consequences from being oppressed, resulted in the multicultural competence pedagogy and has helped counselors identify effective strategies to generate social change (Hage, 2003; Vera & Speight, 2003). Social norms that cause these injustices are identified, allowing for ethnic minorities to constitute and embrace empowerment. Moreover, this consciousness helps prevent therapists own bias’ from playing
We are currently living in era were diversity and inclusion is more important than ever. The start of the colonization of America from many different countries is what makes up the heritage of America. When asked about a person’s heritage, one always replies with a vast number of different races. In the past we welcomed these immigrants. Today, the people that were born and raised by immigrant parents and grandparents do not want more immigrants in America. Immigration laws have always been a controversial topic but with the recent rise in illegal immigration and a rise in unemployment, there has been a greater push for stricter immigration laws. America has always been offered as a safe haven or as a place for immigrants to find a better
I am currently at a placement site, where there is not much diversity when it comes to race. Many of my students consider themselves white or non hispanic with the exception of seven students. Out of those seven, two identify as African American, three identify as hispanic and the other two identify with two or more races. Besides race, I have diversity amongst gender, socioeconomic status, learning styles, accommodations, and modifications. My classes are comprised of more females than males who come from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. Some of the students come from well off families with occupations such as pastors, educators, military personnel, business owners, and doctors while others come from farmers, grocery store workers, restaurant employees and construction workers. Though there is nothing wrong with the occupations of the parents, it is obvious that there is a difference between the
The United States is one of the biggest pluralistic countries in the world. It has a large number of immigration and this for the reason that there is opportunities available. This is a country full of many different types of people with their own cultures and beliefs. People practice intolerance towards different people by cause of their culture, even their skin color. Our history has given us certain rights protected by constitution, unfortunately some people do not respect those rights. Good people like Martin L. King Jr. fought for the rights that should have been given to individuals since birth. Expressing a belief should not be a discrimination. That is the lack of respect to any human being. There should be pluralism that avoids ostracism. People should embrace people’s differences and flaws and create a more accepting nation and a better opportunity for people to prosper. Even though blacks were freed from slavery, they are still not treated equally. Everyone should be treated equally, we are all humans and must work together to share the many opportunities that have been available to
Over the past few years a great deal of controversy has emerged in relation to the question about the legacy of American diversity. Historically, America has stood out as one of the most culturally diverse places in the world. Today, mistreating and giving less favorable opportunities to an individual who is powerless as a minority in society, and belonging to a specific ethnic group, has become the order of the day. For example, since 9/11, Muslims in the United States have experienced increasing discrimination in the workplace and large segments of the Muslim community have faced isolation from fellow American citizens because of differences of faith.
America’s diversity is what flourishes the nation. Immigration is how most of the diversity in America took root. As more immigrants move to this country, more jobs become available, global competition and net exports increase, Americans become able to connect to the world in their own country, the nation’s language capacity and culture grows, and the nation begins to have more of a world-view (Kelly). According to the article “Seven Surprising Ways Immigration Helps Build a Stronger America” by Nataly Kelly- this diversity can not only strengthen the demographics of America but also “ideas that can help the American Dream to continue evolving with the times.” This quote is the heart of what this great nation is all about.
As a citizen of the United States our country consist of cultural diversity in the workplace, church, schools, and etc. It is very unique because people get the chance to meet other people learn interesting things such as food, beliefs, and their country. For instance, as a student there has been much insight learning various information on religions and their beliefs. Even if a person is a Christian and the other person is Buddhism, there should be an open mind to learn about a different religion, but not practicing unless a person is willing to do so. Having a diversity culture gives the opportunity for people to communicate and interact with one another, and also the chance to accept people’s nationality rather than discriminated. “A nation’s
For the most part I have not seen a whole lot of diversity in my community but I hear about diversity all the time on the news. I feel like we have benefited from the influence of people from different parts of the world because it helps us understand other people’s cultures and traditions. It helps us to understand the diversity in the world and to better accept it as a whole.
Cultural Diversity is the existence of a variety of cultural or ethnic groups within a society. There are many processes of Walt’s adaptation to cultural diversity. First, there is the obvious discord between Walt and the young Father of the church. This situation presents cultural differences of identity; specifically, age and religion. This eventually becomes a hindrance in Walt and his Father Janovich’s perception of each other. Walt does not think Father Janovich is credible due to his age and his religious culture of Catholicism, therefore, his dedication to his deceased wife is not anchored by any firm foundation. Father Janovich wants to keep the promises he made to Walt’s late wife Dorothy, but Walt is not convinced. This difference in cultural identity leads Walt to make numerous offensive remarks to Father Janovich, but young Janovich’s faith allows him to exercise patience and longsuffering with Walt. Another aspect of Walt’s adaptation to cultural diversity is the language barriers. Walt’s culture of offensive language creates a cultural divide within his own family. Though he and his family speak the same language, their inability to communicate inter-culturally creates dysfunction, as shown in the scene “Unhappy Birthday.” Walt’s oldest son and his wife presents birthday gifts for Walt, as they believe these are thoughtful and will make Walt’s life “easier.” Entirely out of touch with Walt’s goals and values, their gifts and suggestions are dismissed, as well
