Dr. James Johnson
The word diversity has become a cliché in the United States today. It seems to me that nowadays Americans cannot turn on the television or read a newspaper without seeing the word pop up somewhere as description of the American demographic. Then what is this diversity in the US? Today, we are very pleased to have Dr. James Johnson here on our talk show. Welcome, Johnson. Thanks. Dr. Johnson, we know you have done extensive research on diversity. So, what is, how do you define diversity in the American context? Well, at one time the US was called a melting pot, you know, which means that people of many different religions, cultures, and races could shed their traditional cultural identities and blend into one homogeneous nation. Am I right in saying that a melting pot would emphasize the idea of all in one or being the same?
