Ethnic & Cultural Diversity

Ethnic & Cultural Diversity
When I think of growing up as a young man in Las Vegas, I have nothing but contempt for the people that I interacted with. As a white middle class male in an almost exclusively ethnic neighborhood, I didn?t exactly fit in. It was a reverse discrimination of the worst kind. I got beat up everyday for about the first six months that I lived there, and had only a single friend. Just because your not of a stereotypical ethnicity, doesn?t mean that you can?t be a victim of racism. In an extremely ethnically diverse area, I was looked down upon simply for being different, not better or worse just different. Ethnicity can be defined as, relating to or of a culture or racial group. It is not specific to any one color or nationality, and by itself cannot cause harm, but when you enter a region that is ethnically diverse?tensions begin to rise.
For the purpose of this essay, I would like to define term ethnicity using the definition given in 1998 by the Sociology department of Hunter College:
?The word ethnicity derives from the Greek ethnos, a
