Cultural diversity

Cultural diversity is the quality of diverse or different cultures, as opposed to monoculture, the global monoculture, or a homogenization of cultures, akin to cultural decay. The phrase cultural diversity can also refer to having different cultures respect each other's differences. The phrase "cultural diversity" is also sometimes used to mean the variety of human societies or cultures in a specific region, or in the world as a whole. Globalization is often said to have a negative effect on the world's cultural diversity.

Maya Angelou on Diversity

This is one of the most powerful quotations about diversity I have ever come across. RIP Maya Angelou.

Contributed by Tony Hart

Today bigotry in America and other western countries is at an all time high and it is absolutely ridiculous. People too uninformed and obviously afraid of the unknown. I hate to hear people belittling others just because they think they know so much about their "lower" status. If you don't know, you should not speak. It's even to the point where cultures that were once greatly discriminated against, are now discriminating themselves, intensifying the presence of bigotry. Something has to be done... and now.

What is Sussle?

Sussle is the first, open visual encyclopedia. Anyone can use it.

What's a visual encylopedia?

It has beautiful images and viral videos that are way more fun than reading all the text in traditional encyclopedias.

5 reasons you should add your own images and videos:

  1. If you found Sussle interesting, then give back by adding something interesting for others.
  2. Help others learn in a fun way.
  3. Make someone else interested in this topic laugh or say wow!
  4. Become internet-famous as people like and share your post.
  5. It's super easy, so it won't take more than a minute.
