Do you think the majority of people in our culture:
Respect cultural differences among groups of people.
Show indifference to cultural differences.
Lack respect for cultural differences. Explain each choice.
Compile your responses and write a brief reflections paper (two pages ) on your findings. Specifically address the following issues:
What did you discover was the general attitude toward diversity in our culture?
Is diversity more associated with one race, ethnic, or other minority group than with others? If so, explain why thus might be the case.
Compare and contrast the respondent's views with your own. How would you answer the same questions?
