Communicating in a Diverse Culture
"I just consider myself American. American to me means a free spirit (I guess you can call that freedom), arrogance, and enjoying the benefits of big government and big business at the same time being suspicious of government and frowning on evils of big business. It means having access to education but having displeasure over the quality of it (I of course am not talking about Kaplan). It means being entertained by reality television and dreaming of becoming famous on Dancing with the Stars or American Idol. American means I can change tomorrow if I don’t like who I am today.
I like that. "
The Above is a quote, a student in my Diversity class wrote. He was answering a question in which we were asked to describe briefly our culture and ethnicity and how it relates to us and what we believe and identify with. This is an excerpt of his post that I thought to be a great description and wanted to share.
