True Diversity

This weekend gone,my girlfriend who is 1st generation British of Afro-Caribbean heritage, her best mate who is White British and her best mate`s fiancé who is 1st generation British of Asian heritage were out and about in London having a swell time doing everything from bowling to dining and got the best smiles from people we did not even know. It later struck me that we represented the real 21st century Britannia irrespective of colour, family history or background. We represented the minoroty to the majority, and showed(unconsciously) how easy it was to relate with each other irrespective of our different backgrounds or heritage.

We all grew up in almost similar types of environment, watched the same children programmes as kids, have similar(or almost similar) interests, discussed familiar topics ranging from politics to fashion and entertainment with each person having their own opinion.

If the society at large can live in harmony, with everyone understanding the fact that diversity does have its pros in terms of education about other cultures, similarities with other cultures, differences and cohesiveness, then the society at large will be more peaceful and dispute-free!

Just a thought 🙂
