Our ethnicity is as much a part of each of us as is our DNA. To refuse to help each other understand our many ethnic heritages, our traditions and values that have evolved over generations is to deny us learning about a part of that which makes us human.
Dr. Watson is right. Appreciating and understanding each other’s ethnicity can make us all better, more concerned and empathetic citizens. To deny the importance of such understanding robs all of us from really understanding the mosaic which is the United States.. Remember: “E Pluribus Unum.” Out of many we become one.
