6. DIVERSITY & INCLUSION IN TODAY'S CULTURES IN AMERICA
The theme of the Republican & Democratic conventions in the year 2000 stressed the total acceptance of all peoples regardless of race, color, or creed. This is the first time in the history of this country that our two major parties accept all minorities under our flag, regardless of race, color, or creed. Our pulpits are now accepting Jews, blacks, Hispanics, Catholics, gays, and even the handicapped, like in no time in our history. This is a big breakthrough in our historical development. America now practices what it preaches as a special icon to the world. Listen to Dr. Woznicki expound on this new renewal of the American spirit. His book, An Analysis of International Education, develops this theme succinctly.
