Random Topics - Multiculturalism

Multiculturalism is the acceptance or promotion of multiple ethnic cultures, applied to the demographic make-up of a specific place, usually at the organizational level, e.g. schools, businesses, neighborhoods, cities or nations. In this context, multiculturalists advocate extending equitable status to distinct ethnic and religious groups without promoting any specific ethnic, religious, and/or cultural community values as central. The policy of multiculturalism is often contrasted with the concepts assimilationism and social integration.

2 Like it or not, the United States IS a multicultural nation [yes, even in our region, DolFan] and I believe it's to every individual's benefit to know what makes other folks tick as much as possible. It's not that I think other cultures are all sweetness and light while mine is totally rotten to the core [or vice versa] but I believe trying to learn about other cultures and societies can help re understanding and understand beats ignorance any day. Even if one considers another individual an enemy or vice versa, it's better to know their background and MO than be ignorant of this. Learning other languages can be a key to and I wish I knew more than just English and being somewhat functional in Spanish because even the meanings of individual words can unlock so much of people's culture and history which can open quite a few doors. Music, art, ,cuisine, literature, history, etc. of one's own and others can inspire. I agree that following someone else's prescribed curriculum may not be one's best interest; hence I encourage anyone reading this who is interested to go to the nearest library and read the primary sources re all the above and it can't hurt to study the tenets of the world's major religions to help in one's quest. This isn't something that can happen in a single day or semester but may be a quest of a lifetime. For the record, I'm a proud Christian, native-born US citizen man but that doesn't mean I can't be inspired by learning about how others have lived in this world. -- Submitted By: () on August 12, 2012, 3:47 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 All multiculturalism means to me is having to learn how to pronounce a bunch of weird (from my POV) names, learning how to speak Spanish for no real reason since nobody I know actually speaks it and I never have to use it in any other capacity, and learning once more how evil I'm supposed to be because I'm white. That's pretty much it. I've never had an inclination for racism so multiculturalism is having the same effect on me as the Truth.com ads are having on non-smokers. It's not about everyone being treated the same--that's a big, fat lie. It's about the media actually DIVIDING people along racial lines by defining everyone by race first and foremost. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on August 6, 2012, 2:55 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
