    Cultural diversity refers to beliefs and practices in cultures, not race, Trudy. Like the Oaxacans I mentioned, and the Asians brought up by another poster. Even whites in European countries have different cultural beliefs than whites here in the US. It's about respecting cultures and understanding them. Absolutely nothing to do with race at all.

    My Cultural Anthropology textbook takes a nonjudgmental approach towards cultural diversity. Reading between the lines, though, the textbook seems to be a little bit more accepting of other cultures than it is of our American culture.

    They do question this nonjudgmental approach at one point, when they discuss female genital mutilation.
