I am sure
you will all agree that there is a great need for cultural understanding
in today's multi-cultural Britain. We all tend to think, that the norms
we follow, represent the "NATURAL" way human beings do things
and those who behave otherwise are judged morally wrong. People think
their own culture is the best and the most appropriate way to live.
Cultures are modified in the face of changes of environment but alterations
tend to be grudging and reluctant. The differentiation, which usually
applied to immigrants, is not only cultural, but also is seen in terms
of COLOUR. Colour is the greatest single factor, which governs society's
attitude to members of minority group and influences their own self-image,
and it is inescapable. So there are lots of social and emotional problems
associated with being "black".
