A Kaleidoscope Of Color

The changing image of diversity in the United States is attributed to the different cultures, races, and backgrounds of the nation’s people.

Americans are diverse in regards to cultures, beliefs, and religion. Yet the U.S. is a kaleidoscope of colors and its diversity is one of the things that make this country so great.

The shift in diversity is “so profound that it reveals an America that seemed unlikely a mere 20 years ago — one that will influence the nation for years to come in everything from who is elected to run the country, states and cities to what type of houses will be built and where” (El Nasser & Overberg, 2011).
