Media Influence on Cultural Diversity

Written by Erik Hinch.

I would describe cultural diversity somewhere along the lines of all the different societies and cultures that exist on this planet.  These different regions and groups of people may hold different traditions. There may be very noticeable differences such as the languages spoken, what certain gestures mean, the traditions that are kept in these different cultures, etc. The expansion of media and being able to see more of the world has led to a broader understanding of the vastly different cultures that appear on this planet.

This video, found on YouTube but originally broadcast on a local New York news station, shows the different cultures that are found in the New York area from immigrants from many different reaches of the globe. It is an excellent representation of cultural diversity found in our nation.
