“I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”- Stephen Grellet.
Discrimination by definition is any distinction, exclusion, restriction or preference based on race, gender, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Issues of racism, cultural discrimination and religionism are still omnipresent in the world, yet there are few logical and consistent explanations for the presence of these problems. But What if planet earth consisted of humans with one color, one race, one nation, one religion, and one language? Would the world be a better place?
In my opinion, loss of diversity will make the world a dull place to live in. Being of the same color, sharing one culture and religion will make no difference because even people from the same backgrounds, culture, race, religion and beliefs fight one another. I suppose there might be less conflict based on racial and cultural differences, but hatred and jealousy are matters of the heart therefore, they will exist whether we are a one world planet or not. Human nature dictates that we would find some other reason to divide and dislike one another. Examples are oppression due to socio economic class, physical imperfections, sexual orientations, etc.
It is the differences between individuals that motivate us to keep learning and growing; it is the differences that makes life on this planet beautiful. I do not believe that we would like to discover other things if we all the same color and shared the same language and culture. It is true that diversity has created a series of problems between nations, but one thing I know for sure is that living in a world of the same people will be boring and unexciting. “If we cannot end now our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity.”- John F. Kennedy
