Our society today is built on people from many backgrounds; they are Jewish, African American, British, Irish, German, Japanese, Chinese, Spanish, Italian, Vietnamese, French, Canadian, and many other ethnical backgrounds.
But today, we face racism because their eyes are slanted, or their lips are full; maybe it's because we just don't understand or don't desire to. But because of all these unique and special people the United States of America is a very diverse nation.
Diversity allows us to see and live with other cultures, to share in their customs and to eat their foods ... Dance to their music and enjoy their holidays.
It teaches us respect for all others and gives each of us a true meaning of acceptance...
Today, Edward Nelson, Derek Brooks, Wayne Brunner, Leroy Kyles, Jesse Parra and Richard Samuels, Say:
In order to grow from within and learn a new and better way to understand people as a whole ...

Diversity is the key To Unlocking the Doors of Racism.......
