Iam always in contact with people from different cultures including byschoolmates and friends. Consequently, it is critical to accept that myperspectives about others should not misguide me into being biased and treatingother cultures in a manner that might lead to discrimination and stereotyping.If I have to base a specific action on my culture, it does not mean that theaction is right or wrong in regards to another culture.
