Cultural Diversity
By: Casey Dillon, Lindsay Riley, Olivia Campbell, Kellie Martin, Stephanie Brown, and Emily Holzman

What Does The Theme Cultural Diversity Mean?
Cultural Diversity means the cultural variety and cultural differences that exist in the world, a society, or an institution. Cultural Diversity includes groups that were born into, such race, national origin, gender, class, or religion. Cultural Diversity is a group we or people join to become part of. Culture is a strong part of people’s lives. Religion is a belief that people think is true. "This influences their views, values, humor, hopes, loyalties, worries, and fears." If you’re in a mixture of cultures your culture can help make the other Culture more stronger. This will help to have some perspective and understanding of other cultures, getting new ideas and getting along. People can’t pretend that your culture and differences don't matter. If people don’t learn about the influences that cultural groups have had on our mainstream history and culture, they are all missing out on an accurate view of society and our Communities.
How Does Cultural Diversity Relate To The Community In
The Giver
Everything in the Community appeared the same, so that no one would feel inferior or superior towards one another. Sameness made sure that there was no jealousy in the Community, and everything was fair. Cultural Diversity has no sameness and everyone is their own person, which can include religion, skin color, eye color, etc. In
The Giver
, Sameness was also created so there wern’t any bad choices. In the real world, in places such as the United States, Great Britain, and Chad, there is freedom of choice so that you can truly be who you want to be.The lack of Cultural Diversity in
The Giver
taught readers the meaning and importance of the subject.

Where is Cultural Diversity practiced?
Cultural Diversity is practiced mostly throughout the whole world. In countries such as the U.S, Great Britain, and Chad, they accept Cultural Diversity the most. Cultural Diversity is practiced in these countries because it helps people bond and unite. If Cultural Diversity wasn’t practiced, there wouldn’t be different races and or religions. Most countries allow and encourage Cultural Diversity, however many do not. If you look at the map to the right, it shows the most diverse cultures you'll see around the country, and whom encourage Cultural Diversity.

Most governments around the world allow and welcome Cultural Diversity to their country. The United States invites cultures from all around the world and so does Canada, multiple countries in Africa, and Europe along with Asia. Cultural Diversity is almost impossible to avoid, people migrate from other areas constantly so government can not have much control over this. A lot of governments encourage the mix of cultures to prosper their own country, to spread new ideas throughout its country. “By the turn of the century one out of every three americans will be a person of color,” according to http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2013/07/18/the-most-and-least-culturally-diverse-countries-in-the-world/. Although some countries do not encourage this very much like Chile and Argentina think everyone in their country should have the same culture. These South American countries want everyone to believe, act, and behave like everyone else not wanting other cultures to mix with them. The governments here want to isolate other cultures besides their main one and keep the religion, food, and clothing alike.
Why Have Governments Allowed These Practices And When
This video shows how different cultures mix.
How Does Cultural Diversity Relate To The Community In
The Giver
Cultural Diversity relates to the Community in
The Giver
because in the book there is lack of Cultural Diversity, meaning everyone is the same. The lack of Cultural Diversity was shown throughout the book such as when the characters were being described. Throughout the book, however, there were times when one character named Jonas saw differences. For example, in a memory Jonas received, there were men with different skin colors. Jonas had never experienced that color of skin before, other than the skin color of his Community, which was all the same.

These pictures show different races and religions being spread throughout the world.
This video summarizes all of the questions and explains how amazing Cultural Diversity is and how lucky we are to have it.
