I recently wrote a piece on multiculturalism at Hot Air. It’s an interesting subject which has a lot of definitions. Here’s an excerpt of the piece.
I was brought up by my parents in Texas to acknowledge and honor other people, regardless of their race, religion, sex, or political ideology. Every human I meet is a potential friend, not a probable enemy. There are certainly differences, but most of those get thrown in the garbage dump, even if a friend would prefer to listen to, say, Katy Perry or Britney Spears versus my own preferred musical tastes of Amon Amarth and Coheed and Cambria. It’s certainly an easier match with a potential girlfriend to share (or at least accept) my own political and religious beliefs, and share a like or four, but romantic relationships are give and take. Friendships are give and take, as well, which is a good thing because it allows me to learn more about others, and vice versa.
