I believe that anyone can be teachable if they are open-minded and willing to accept help.I have worked in many different types jobs with a lot of diversity and I have built strong, healthy,friendly relationships with these people no matter their race, creed, or religion and I feel that if you would ask them if they felt the same way they would agree. This course has taught me a lot about different minority groups and what they have had to overcome through out their lives to flourish. Before taking this course, I was only aware of blacks and whites and their discrimination between one another but what I have learned during
5my time in class that many others have struggled to survive in this world. While doing research for my presentation on Cherokee Indians, it opened my eyes to a world that I was not familiar with. The struggle that the Cherokee had to over-come was devastating, being pushed out of theirland, killed, and raped was a wrenching experience of mine learning of this. My views on minority groups have not changed after taking this course. I have always believed that all people should be treated equally and that everyone should have a fair shot at prospering in America no matter their sex, race, culture or religion. America allows people to follow their dreams and allows them to have hope for a better life. Without hope and or faith we have nothing. I believe everyone has something to offer and I am willing to learn more about someone because it will make me a stronger person mentally and spiritually. Resources
