Understanding Diversity
Most of the information that I have learned about in the past nine weeks have shown me that I really did not know much about the issues of different minority groups. I have learned that many people are still very ignorant by stereotyping, prejudicing and discriminating against minorities, and the minority groups still having to fight for their rights that have been given to the majority group without questions. Minorities are misunderstood because many people are just not willing to learn about them and rather avoid them. In a study conducted with 434 college students showed ...view middle of the document...

I have felt some of the hatred that has been held toward Germans, although we are not the only ones acting hostile specifically toward the Jewish (n/a, 2000). Germans have changed throughout the past 50 years, looking back onto the despair and anguish that they have caused others, specifically the Jewish, but not limited to, and have managed to grow into a caring, supporting nation. I have also learned that people like to hold on to resentment for past situations; anyone against the Germans for the holocaust, just like many hold resentment against the Americans for treating the Native American Tribes the way they do. Many changes have been made throughout the past, but it will never be forgotten, no matter how many changes will be made.

Trends in Immigration
The United States is going to change its face within the next 30 years. Immigration is not going to slow down because America is still the country of the endless possibilities. It is to expect that many of the today minorities are soon going to be the majority group in the U.S. The 2008 Census predicted that by 2050 the number of residents older than 65 will be more than double from what it was in 2008. Current minorities, every race other than non-Hispanic, single-race whites, which account of about one third of the U.S. population, are anticipated to become the majority with more than half of the population by 2042. The biggest minority group in 2008 will present the biggest growth through 2050, nearly tripling from 46.7 million to an astonishing 132.8 million in 42 years timespan (n/a, CNN U.S.: Minorities to be expected to be majority in 2050, 2008). Immigrants have built this country and there will be always immigrants that are trying to start a new live here. There is an expected population growth of about 142 million people, from a 269 million in 2005 to about 438 million in 2050. Of the 142 million people 117 million are expected to be immigrants, which divides again into 67 million people who immigrate into the U.S. and 50 million will be the count of their children and grandchildren born on U.S. soil (Passel & Cohn, 2008).

Challenges Due to Diversity
In the U.S. diversity is so big that the country is faced with several issues, some of them more obvious than others. The more people migrate to the U.S. the more financial issues might occur for welfare and other government institutions, but at the same time, new people means new ideas, new views and perspectives, and new ways of doing things. We tend to get lost in out ways because we are so used to doing things the way we have learned them from our families and ancestors, but there are ways out there in this world that could work even better for us, if we would open us up and let them in. Diversity means being colorful, rich on differences, maybe unusual, but interesting. All of these attributes is something we would want for this country. Diversity does have its positive sides, but they do create turmoil as well....
