Final Project- Week 9

Even though has its share of problems, the United States is a diverse country because it has a multitude of people in all backgrounds and it is a melting pot with lots to offer all races and ethnicities. There are so many different ethnicities and cultures that live in the United States, that there should be no reason for people to get bored with each other. Learning the ways of others is something that everyone should be open to. The United States has Whites, Blacks, Native Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanics and many ethnic groups such as; Jewish, Irish, English, and Italian among others.

These challenges include religion, language barriers, racism, and ethnocentrism. Ethnocentrism is the tendency to assume that one’s culture and way of life are superior to all others, Schaefer (2012). The United States will probably always have these problems, because there will always be someone out there who thinks that they are better than someone else. Religion is a challenge because with so many different cultures of people, no one is going to carry the same religious beliefs. It makes it harder for the schools to carry on the traditional prayer in school because we can’t make time to acknowledge the various different ways that people worship. Not only that, but because there are those who think that other religions are wrong and that theirs is not. The language barrier is a problem because with people coming from so many different places, whether they were born here or not, means that everyone does not speak the same language. There is English, French, and Spanish among others. While there is a language barrier, people do tend to use sign language as a way to express what they need or want. Racism is another problem that needs to be addressed in the United States. There is so much hate crime going on due to racism and people need to stop being so blinded by what happened in the past and start looking to the future. We need to start teaching our kids that everyone is a person, and because they look or speak differently than we do, doesn’t mean that they are really all that different. It just means that there is something new to learn. Learning about others religions and backgrounds will make a person more knowledgeable about things and knowledge is power.
While there are challenges of being a diverse society, there are also benefits. These benefits could be learning new things and teaching acceptance of and about others. Learning the ways of different cultures, such as the foods, languages and customs or traditions could be beneficial because it teaches us about our neighbors. It also teaches acceptance not only for different races and cultures, but also for the gay and lesbian community and even from the bi-racial families. We can learn so much from all of the differences of a diverse society.
We can foster a climate of acceptance and cultural pluralism in the United States by being open minded. Culture means a way of life including widespread values, beliefs, and behavior. Macionis (2012). Pluralism means a state in which people of all racial and ethnic categories have about the same overall social standing. Macionis (2012). We as a society need to be accepting of the cultures and values of others, and to realize that everyone should have the same rights and responsibilities as those around us. To foster is to promote the...
