What does this statement mean and do you agree with it 

The consequence of the single story is this: It robs people of dignity. It makes our recognition of our equal humanity difficult. It emphasizes how we are different rather than how we are similar

The statement suggests that the single story tends to characterize individuals or groups of individuals (to include cultures or nations) by a single story.  I agree with the statement, as judging by a single story creates and perpetuates prejudicial thinking, categorizes persons unfairly, fails to recognize individuality and uniqueness, and sets a group of persons apart from others.  The danger of the single story is that it too often leads to hatred.
