FosteringTolerance for Diversity
FosteringTolerance for Diversity
Thegovernment should take charge and authorize policies on tolerance fordiversity within and beyond its boundaries. For instance, the recentmove by President Obama to amend the immigration policies is an idealremedy for fostering tolerance for diversity. He did not have tonecessarily provide citizenship to the immigrants who were illegallyliving in America, but rather made it easier for them to acquire workpermits and deportation reliefs. In so doing, the immigrants wouldfeel welcome in the United States of America.
The regimecan also make a worthwhile contribution to the issue by introducingglobal innovative programs. The plans act as forums where people ofdiverse cultures can meet and interact. Moreover, worldwide eventsfoster economic diversity as they entail the assembling of globalskills to come up with essential commodities (Lichter, 2013).
On the otherhand, the media is also a key player in the battle as it commands asubstantial part in advocating for tolerance and acceptability ofdiversity (Young etal.2015). Strikingly, the images released by the various groups of mediasuch as the press have a significant influence on the individualattributes of the Americans and other citizens as well towardsdiversity. Therefore, a combination of the efforts by the media andthe government could be quite useful in ensuring tolerance fordiversity in the USA. As the government makes favorable policies, themedia takes up the role of educating the general public on theimportance of the move.
Moreover, thecentral function of the press in supporting the intents of thegovernment is to publicize the proposed rules and regulations (Youngetal.2015). The persistent exposure of individuals to positive informationon other cultures results to an environment with people who findfewer faults among themselves. The media could be an ideal solutionfor the marginalized communities or rather the groups with limitedaccess to the outside world. The communities are vulnerable andgreatly influenced by the information they obtain from the media.
Strikingly,the promotion of tolerance and diversity within the United States isa joint effort that calls for the contribution of various groups ofthe society. The fact that America is a multiracial society meansthat its economy is entirely dependent on diverse elements. Ascitizens of the country, the Americans should take part in protestingagainst the oppressive rules that discourage interaction in a propermanner. It is also advisable that they confront the perpetrators ofthe discriminatory acts as the failure to do so serves as a forum forsending a message that the behavior is tolerable within the society(Wates, 2014).
Consequently,the citizens of USA can change their perception to the other culturalgroups living within the boundaries of the United States. Creating afavorable environment enhances the efforts of the government tocreate a favorable environment for the diverse groups to feelwelcomed. Creating a society that is willing to socialize is acritical issue that helps to form the core framework for gettingfamiliar with others and acknowledging their differences. Here, it ispossible to learn about the concerns and issues of other people andtheir views on multicultural differences.
Inconclusion, people can combine their skills as they possess distincttalents to create an enhanced economic environment that can supporttheir existence. The efforts are crucial in performing and economicreevaluation to ensure that the minorities have some degree ofcontrol over the economy, unlike the current situation where theCaucasian have control over most of the resources in the country.
