There was a great deal of new information about diversity available during this course. There was never had much of a chance to learn about other cultures considering the current environment. Growing up in Salt Lake City Utah, which is almost entirely Caucasian, particularly in the more wealthy areas, diversity in cultural and racial systems was almost non-existent. The area is also not very mixed religiously, being almost entirely dominated by the Mormon Church. People of the catholic faith are in the minority in the area. This can give a point of view on discrimination that is not as common among Caucasian males as it is among females and people of other races in the United States. The interest in history meant that there was a great deal of familiarity with the history of discrimination, but the realization that many of those struggles still persist today was never appreciated. Learning more about the current conditions of the various races, particularly the difference in salary has helped foster the understanding that discrimination is still very present in today’s society.
The presence of discrimination has also helped with understanding the current situation. As part of the racial, cultural, and gender benefited groups, there was no real discriminatory experience related to these aspects, but struggles with disability and membership in the...

What information about diversity in the United States has helped you better understand or relate to others in ways that you may not have in the past?
The information I learned about diversity may not fit into the intended point of the class. Thinking back as far as I can remember the way I related to others was and still is decided on the way the mutual consideration for respect for whatever the purpose for the need to relate. At a point in my life I would have had no problem saying ‘’I Steven Hodges am proud to have a divers mindset in regard to being open to everything, and everyone imaginable under the sun’’. It is unfortunate that the word diversity seems to have been tainted and used like a tool to cloud and impede the accomplishments made, or at least started by people like Martin Luther King JR. The information I have gathered about diversity in the US is that so many people are too worried about other people and how diverse they are; but they them self-need to ask themselves how divers they truly are. I feel that too many people have a sense of entitlement and these same people freely point out the differences of other people who may not share the same opinion as them. Yet if they are so divers why can they not accept that people are different and we all do not have to think and feel the way the next person does.

Historical Report on Race
* What have been the experiences of this racial group throughout U.S. history?
In the 17th century African Americans were introduced to the world to benefit society as slaves but it produced a problem within the years to come. By the end of this century slavery had been proved to be less useful for the North and South. By the 1800’s there was an argument in where “white” people thought that black people including children couldn’t handle society on their own thinking that they needed shelter, clothing, food in order to function or be part of society and being slaves kept them occupied. As a part of society, African Americans organized movement throughout the United States in which they called it the Underground Railroad to seek a better life for themselves. With the help of Abraham Lincoln (Emancipation of Proclamation) African Americans were able to see somewhat of a change on their roll from slaves to being free.
On December 6, 1865, eight months after the end of the Civil War, the United States adopted the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which outlawed the practice of slavery.

Final Project – Cultural Diversity
Developing an understanding about the diversity of the population in the United States of America is paramount when interacting with demographics different from my own. I fell that the information that I received about others during the Cultural Diversity course has assisted in understanding and relations between those I interact with on a daily basis. One of the subjects covered during the course that stands out in my mind is the discussion of stereotypes. The discussion of stereotypes has made me conscience of my own misunderstanding of other cultures. The Jewish community was one of my most misunderstood cultures. My main misunderstanding about the Jewish community was anchored in religion. Being of Christian faith the Jewish people were like villains. After reading and reviewing about Jewish people I have more understanding and realize that their beliefs are very similar to my own (except for the obvious difference). In addition to learning about other racial, ethnic, and cultural history groups I learned some new information about my own. I was not aware of the vast cultural influence African Americans have in the United States of America. Of course I am aware of African American influence in agriculture, literature, and music. What I was not aware of was African American contribution to the sciences. Some...

Write a 100- to 150 word response to each of the following questions:
What are causes of discrimination?
Discrimination can come in all shapes and sizes. It can happen in everyday life and also in the work place. A lot of discrimination comes from ignorance, uneducated, stereotypes, and fear. These things do not excuse the behavior but are clearly things that can be changed. Some of these behaviors come from learned traits as a child and embedded in us in our upbringing. The community and media play a big part as well. The peers we surround ourselves with also influence us more then we may think. When something is different then what we are used to, the unknown scares us and placing prejudice in the place of the fear makes it easier to cope with. At which point this leads to discrimination to different degrees.
How is discrimination faced by one identity group (race, ethnicity, religious beliefs, gender, sexual...
