ETH 125: Cultural Diversity


In my community in which I live there are a variety of many ethnic groups. When I go outside, and sit on my front porch I can see many ethnic groups communicating with each other. I was born and raised in Inglewood, CA for a while but I moved to Atlanta, GA with my father. I have not live in many cities but the one in which I live are quite different from the one I grew up. Atlanta, GA is the city where I live now. “Atlanta is the capital and most populous city in the state of Georgia as well as the urban core of one of the fastest-growing metropolitan area in the United ...view middle of the document...

Atlanta is the place where they have many Africans Americans thinking that they can make a better living, but in the outlook of element this city is a very expensive city to live. Especially how the economic is not increasing and employment are hard to find. Because I have been living in Atlanta, I would not think any African Americans look alike. We all may have similar ways but when it come to look there is a big difference. I can just sit back and look around my community and noticed that we all have many different similarities such as skin color, hair, religion, and traditions. In my community no one judges him or her on what ethnic group he or she belongs in. Everybody just usually able to along with each other no matter what type of skin color they are. Simply an African American religious have many different people who have certain religion. Some are Baptist, Muslims, Methodist, and Presbyterian. Many of them take exceptional pride in their beliefs. When I was growing up as a child my parents always made us go to church but as I gotten older it seems like I do not go like I use. Many have their own beliefs and religion. Just like I said everybody have their own opinion about going to church.
In the community in which, I live we have a few leaders who seem to take care of our community. Mayor Kasim Reed who, was inaugurated as the Atlanta’s 59th Mayor on January 4, 2010. Mayor Reed is striving to improve our city by creating new youth centers, public safety, ensuring all around responsibility, and providing good service to the residents. Because I have been living in the city of Atlanta, I have notice that some African Americans do treat Caucasians different. Especially in Atlanta the African Americans do outnumber the Caucasians so much. I believe it is putting pressure on many Caucasians Americans. Just like I noticed many African Americans feel like Caucasians are trying to take over their jobs, homes, and lifestyle. That is why I think some of them do not get along. For example, just like the story of Micheal Vick some people think what he did was wrong, but many believe it goes on in the South. “It is not a black or white issue but an issue of animal cruelty. Blacks, whites, Hispanics, it does not matter. Vick should not get any special treatment because he is a football player. People need to stop using race as an excuse.”
The text use for this course contains very much about African Americans. Many African Americans throughout this century have been through a rough time or situation. Where I live the local media has nothing but African American who working for him or her. When they see some of the citizens they always greet them with good words. In the media, women stay well-dress and the men also. I think that all African Americans who work at local station always set good examples for their own races. Because I think that they say if they can do, it so can us. Our local media explains everything of what is going on...
