Summary
Exclusion or inclusion, discord or harmony hinge on hating or appreciating cultural differences. This book is very relevant today because school shootings and teen suicides often relate to being left out, laughed at, and bullied because of cultural differences.Teens - Accept and Embrace Diversity capitalizes on what comes naturally – cohesion not cruelty. Teens can un-learn bigotry and become broad-minded, experience empathy for people they previously judged and replace criticism with compassion. To welcome diversity reduces and/or diminishes prejudice and nurtures respect for one’s own and others’ cultures. The activities in this book will encourage teens to accept other cultures' various views and to become aware of the influences of their own home life, environment, friends, community, and media. They will be encouraged to think for themselves.To embrace diversity is a giant step toward life, and a better quality of life, for potentially marginalized people and for possible perpetrators of prejudice, who focus on becoming promoters of peace.The seven chapters include: Accepting Diversity. Diversity definitions and cheers, cultural considerations, assimilation and multiculturalism, chess game and animal analogies, commonalities and closed-minded versus open-minded reactions. Physical Diversity. Prejudice or preference based on appearance, sensitivity toward people with disabilities, disease conditions or sensory impairments. Refute misleading media messages about a perfect body. Mental Diversity Ways to diminish stigmas against people with mental health issues or learning difficulties, to overcome cultural barriers to expressing feelings and seeking help, to dispel myths about mental illness and to recognize everybody has strengths. Social Diversity. Hate and hope, socioeconomic status, gender stereotypes, being an ally – not a bystander, sexual orientation issues, motives underlying bullying and bigotry, and viewing people as multi-dimensional – learning not to pigeonhole them based on one trait. Exceptions to Acceptance. To reject media messages that glamorize aggression and to promote a culture of non-violence through song lyrics, posters, debates, bumper stickers, mock videos, panel discussions, etc. Avoiding Stereotypes and Prejudice. Self-segregation versus inclusion, non-judgmental attitudes, unlearning hate and learning to love, identifying dangers of labels, scapegoating, making false assumptions about fame and failure, facing mob mentality versus individualism, seeking people, places and things that define one’s roots, defining reasons not to bully, and studying civil rights quotations and depictions. Advocacy in Action. The difference one person can make, the value of collaborative efforts at home, school, the community and world, personal attributes of an advocate, and ways to use one’s talents to give back to the universe
