It’s easy to look at the world through rose colored glasses and see all the wonderful and good things that have happened. Having this optimistic view of life is a beautiful thing and helps us keep improving and growing in those directions. Sadly though, the truth persists in the fact that many of our modern practices and beliefs are failing us. Our civilization seems to be growing and achieving, but with every step upward another downward spiral is revealed. Our civilizations make strives for technology, and multiculturalism, and looks forwards to peace and prosperity, even as our technology threatens our existence, racial violence runs rampant, and we have recently experienced some of the most deadly wars of our time. The first sign of how the west is failing is how we have had two of the deadliest wars in modern history. World War I and World War II brought on some of the most terrifying leaders, willing to kill their own people and maim the world simply to further their own political beliefs, as well as introducing some of the most deadly and massively destructive weapons ever seen by mankind. These wars brought rise to some of the most terrifying and deadly world leaders such as Hitler and Stalin. Hitler is a perfect example of a person who is against multiculturalism. He may have not defined himself as such, but his strong hatred for specific cultures, races, and sub-groups was the driving force behind his abhorrent efforts to cleanse the world and create the perfect

There have been more articles and books written on cultural diversity than most any other subject matter that effects modern societies in the western world, while some are pro diversity, there are many that are not, and while many in the government and most of Canada’s intellectuals tout Canada’s cultural and ethnic diversity as the reason for Canada’s great success and remarkable prosperity in this modern age. There are those who will strongly disagree with this opinion and viewpoint and believe that more time is needed to properly evaluate its outcome. Canada is ranked as the most multicultural society in the world, and a lot of Canada’s success and development has been attributed to migrants coming into Canada and becoming very successful settlers. This has rightly or wrongly, been attributed to multiculturalism and while multiculturalism can have many advantages and can contribute to national success, it does have just as many disadvantages and can lead to events with less than desirable consequences. Leading opinion is that multiculturalism has had a positive outcome on Canada due to Canada now being a country that is so diverse and rich in cultural diversity, that there are now vast amounts of ideas, opinions and lifestyles to explore all within one national identity, even though putting so many races and a varying of cultures together, all of which have vastly opposing value differences, have also lead to acts of discrimination, racism and in some cases violence, the
Multiculturalism, as a term, doesn’t only explain a society that is diverse due to immigration, but also tells ways to manage such a society. It is a marvel by which distinctive nationalities can be seen or found in one nation. This term presents locals with various societies and conventions around the globe elevating different ethnicity to the people. Sociologists believe that the concept of multiculturalism approaches the cultural diversity in a method or the opposite among the society. However, every conception has pros and cons attached to it that in itself makes it debatable. The deadly attacks that took place in Paris on Friday systematically slaughtered many people present at that time. Paris being the capital city, shootings and explosions were reported in 6 locations of that town. These attacks increased fear in Europe which eventually created exile emergencies to happen in France. Because of which certain measures were taken by the governance such as; things like expanded security at air terminals and other significant travel center points, the foundation of examination

Relative preferred standpoint is the capacity of a country to deliver the different assets that are required by its subjects for and furthermore for import to gain it income. It's a monetary wonder where diverse nations effectively contend to create quality items at low costs. Generation of value items that are extremely modest interest to numerous clients. Such a circumstance has prompted clashes between countries as one country could be delivering a given item and pitches it to their natives at a higher cost than the cost of that comparative item that has been transported in. Such a circumstance has the two favorable circumstances and inconveniences as underneath examined.
“We may have different religions, different languages, different colored skin, but we all belong to one human race.” - Kofi Annan (Ghanaian Diplomat, 7th UN Secretary General,2001 Nobel Peace Prize Winner). In 1971, Canada was the primary nation on the planet to implement multiculturalism as an official strategy. By doing so, Canada ensured the esteem and pride of every single Canadian citizen paying little mind to their racial or ethnic sources, their dialect, or their religious association. The 1971 Multiculturalism Policy of Canada likewise affirmed the privileges of Aboriginal people groups and the status of Canada's two authority dialects. Not exclusively does multiculturalism in Canada have an authoritative part, it likewise has legal foundations that administer it. While there is no "multiculturalism court" in essence, key authoritative organizations of multiculturalism do have legal structures. The Canadian Human Rights Act, for instance, is implemented by the government Human Rights Commission and Tribunal. These bodies have the specialist to parley and intercede cases of segregation secured by the Act. Likewise, the rights to uniformity and flexibility under the Charter are deciphered and upheld by the Canadian legal ― specifically, the Supreme Court of Canada. Under the Charter, the courts may strike down or change government laws and practices on the off chance that they observe them to be in opposition to natives'
Today's society is changing like a raging, red wildfire. It has drastically changed uncontrollably for the worse. Despite that, no one has attempted to extinguish this fire's ruthless flames. Instead, hatred and greed continue to fuel present-day society. Although today's society has designed impressive technology, hate and greed have also flourished greatly.
In the time since the Middle Ages, the West has experienced a number of radical shifts, both politically and ideologically. Each of these shifts has “broken the previous pattern” of cultural norms. But while some have been beneficial, others have caused injustices and suffering. Either way, each of these events has had a dramatic effect on world history, and will likely never be forgotten.
Multiculturalism is often a misleading word, but what does it mean. Does it mean a combination of all cultures into one? Or does it mean a world where all cultures thrive equally and each is respected? Unfortunately, neither is true. The true meaning is not in the word itself, but how it displays in the real world. People view multiculturalism as a controversial issue. Some people view multiculturalism as a negative, and some think it is positive. America is one of most cultural diverse countries because it is a “melting pot” of all types of ethnicities and nationalities from all over the world. This just shows that people are aware of multiculturalism because it allows a better understanding of one another. Having this awareness can create the clarity amongst different cultures, races, and ethnic groups around the world.
In America, people are born and raised to believe that this country was founded on human rights such as life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. In reality these rights were not always accessible for minorities in United States. Minorities in America have had to overcome obstacles including being treated as second class citizens. Multiculturalism has existed alongside the history of America ever since the setters migrated to the new world. People have always migrated to this country for thousands of years moving into different habitats and spreading their influences over one another the mixing of different cultures has resulted in many different outcomes depending on their situation. Multiculturalism, once a radical idea in America, has risen through time to promote peace and equal coexistence for Americans.
Multiculturalism is known as the presence of, or support for the presence of, several distinct cultural or ethnic groups within a society. In the 2001 census 7.5% of the population were people born abroad. This figure has been increasing and the 2011 census reported a figure of 13%. Certain issues however tend to arise with these ‘multicultural societies’ due to various different factors, one of them being the economy. In the UK there has been legislation on anti-racism, employment rights and equal opportunities to combat discrimination, prejudice and racism. Despite this, the cost of state benefits can cause resentment and racial intolerance. In 2002 it was calculated that the net tax contribution of migrants to the UK economy was £2.5 billion
The multicultural melting pot, as Canada has so avidly been called may not be as melded together as the leaders would like us to believe. Even though the Canadian government is actively pursuing multicultural acceptance, racist ideologies still prevail amongst the general population. The strained relationship with First Nations peoples is beginning to be redeemed through the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and there have been bills passed through the federal government that are attempting to abolish racism issues such as “islamophobia” and other fearful attitudes; however, commissions and bills only prove that the government is concerned about these issues and wants to do something, yet, does nothing to change the prevailing attitudes or shift the cultural norms of racism and fear. The broth of the pot is attempting to dissolve every other ingredient and turn it into broth but neglecting to acknowledge that the variance in flavour is what makes soup great.
My ride along I decided to do with Bakersfield Sheriff’s Department on Friday where it became later windy. Arriving at short briefing before their shift eleven to nine at night Dept.

Lately, it is nearly impossible to read a newspaper, read an article or even turn on your television without learning about the overwhelming amount of troubles that have plagued our world today. Contrary to our scientific development, it seems as though humanity has made hardly any advancements in the quest for world peace. The world as we once knew it is nearly gone and now the remnants of it can only be found in the precious reminiscences of the old, the dusted bindings of books, and the hearts of those who crave for society to return back to the way it was. Wars that use to be fought on enemy lines have now been brought home, governments that rose to power preaching democratic ideologies have grown to be totalitarian, and now more than ever,
Charles de Gaulle, quotes that "How can you govern a country which has 246 varieties of cheese?” After listening to this quote, one can quickly realise that it is quite impossible to accommodate different cultures within a country without bearing its shortfalls. Although, nearly every state promotes the concept of diversity, of the various cultural groups within a country but merely one percent of all of them are officially multicultural.Moreover, this apprises us with an illusion that accommodating distinct cultures within a country has a lot of shortcomings.
The American correctional system does have an admirable job of providing appropriate justice to the correctional clients that it serves. The perception that society has about the criminal justice profession is more complex depending on the situation. In this essay I will discuss on what can be done to remove the negative stereotypes associated within this profession. I’m going to discuss the understanding of multiculturalism and diversity in different cultures. I’m also going to discuss why it’s important for the public to know how correctional systems punish offenders, and how police self-serve the community.
