There are those who say that American diversity is strength. Others who say American diversity is a weakness. Does the United States of America thrive on diversity? America is a mixture of races, religions, and cultures. However, is America home to all? And, is this home such that no one group can call itself more “American” than another? Do we see each other as equally American; or, are some by mere perception, more American than others? Do we know and understand what it means to be American? In being a diverse, American population, are we weaker; or, are we stronger? Is a chain only as strong as its weakest link? If so, who or what do you see as the weakest link? Diverity is not just races or colors, it is gender, age, diabilities, and sexual preferences. The battle for true diversity is not a battle of the tangible. It is the battle of the intangible…of what is in your heart and what is in your mind. Your opinions, perceptions, and realities may determine one’s level of success.
