2. What is ethnocentrism? In what ways can ethnocentrism be detrimental to a society?
The ethnocentric perspective, on a certain level, can lead to a positive group identity, which in turn enhances one?s affiliation with others within the same group, personal identity, confidence, self-esteem, understanding of self, [ and a psychological sense of well-being. It would be wrong, therefore, to automatically assume any form of ethnocentrism as having negative effects on the
society. The negative effects do clearly exist, although the highly excessive forms of ethnocentrism prevalent in the early twentieth century ? which is when William Graham Sumner coined the term ? are not equally relevant today in the twenty-first century. Having coined the term, Graham went on to state that an ethnocentric viewpoint of the world only leads to pride and vanity... ]

User: 1. What is diversity? Why is diversity valued?

Weegy: These are the some of the Diversity Quotes in classroom: My school is holding a diversity parade at the end of the month, and all the classrooms are decorating their doors for the event. [ I spent a couple hours today compiling a list of quotes on the subject. I could only fit 4 quotes on the poster, but found many more. I thought I'd share them in case anyone else is doing something similar... We may have different religions, different languages, different colored skin, but we all belong to one human race - Kofi Annan If you judge people, you have no time to love them - Mother Teresa Love is the only force capable of turning an enemy into a friend - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Peace can not be kept by force, it can only be achieved by understanding - Albert Einstein The highest result of education is tolerance - Helen Keller Although we are in different boats, you in your boat and we in our canoe, we share the same river of life - Oren Lyons, Onandaga Nation Chief We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same - Anne Frank We have become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams - Jimmy Carter If we can not end now our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity - John F. Kennedy Prejudice is a burden that confuses the past, threatens the future and renders the present inaccessible - Maya Angelou ]
