Living in a multicultural society helps one understand the behavior of

different people, the diversities within these people, the historical and
geographical contexts of these differences, the social norms and
prejudices towards these people, and in a more complicated sense, racial
issues. This knowledge can give one a wider perception of the evolution of
culture in different countries, making one more knowledgeable and wellread in the context of cultural differences. Bringing the fascination of the
mlange of religious activities, way of living, traditions, arts, music, food,
practices, and clothing of the different tribes, a multicultural society
expands the intellectual knowledge of an individual about the complexity
of the world and its people. With the modern changes the world is
experiencing now, it is important that the values and beliefs of the
different cultural groups are not disregarded.
However, living in a multicultural society can influence your identity,
forging the patronization of an individual to other culture where one is
interested. Sometimes, this puts the original culture of a person at stake,
resulting in the degradation of different tribes and worse, absolute
negligence of it. Living in a multicultural society is also difficult because of
social inequalities. The tough part is seeing a group of people being
marginalized or being subordinated by other groups. It would, at rare
cases, cause the psychological negation of ones mind towards social
norms which, when this transforms into a more passionate conviction,
could lead to one defensing and helping in protecting peoples rights
through outrageous activism.
2. I do see myself as a multicultural person simply because I like the idea of
conversing with different type of people. When given the opportunity, I
would love to travel places and know the different traditions and activities
in which the people of the world, most especially in Asia, have been
practicing. I love to try different foods from the different countries or
places in particular countries, most especially those with a truly salient
cultural meaning. I would also like to hear different languages spoken by
different people and learn about them because I love to comprehend what
people who do not know how to speak English say.
3. I came from the Philippines, and I must admit that there are really
different ethnic groups in the country. We have Igorots, Lumads, Tausug,
Muslims, and others. (Hindi ko alam kung the place where you live na
tinutukoy ay Canada. Kung oo man, wala akong alam dun. XD)
4. Majority of these ethnic groups in the Philippines are not civilized. They
often live in places not commonly reached by government aids or not
technologically advanced. These are the people who used to live in
environmentally friendly locations, like near the river, mountain areas, and
others. These ethnic tribes are also the people who have strictly kept their
cultural activities and other religious activities with them. The value of
their cultural tribe die with them.
