SHARE – Let’s Take A World Tour Together – Just To Get To Know Each Other – Around The World In A Post!

I’ve preached like a preacher that We Are One, and that we must extend the beauty of our cultures to each other, as well as, reciprocate with others.

But, I never told you how.

I have my own way of learning about people who look different than I do, and I will share my ideas with you. I have also provided tips from others.

First, here is how I get exposure to other cultures and races:

  • Attend International Festivals
  • Try different dishes and cuisines
  • Offer traditional recipes from your culture to someone from another culture.
  • Travel if you have the means. I have traveled internationally, but don’t have the means, nor the frequent flyer miles, that I once did.
  • Volunteer for International charitable and entertaining events
  • Attend plays, ballets, operas, and other theater productions themed in alternative cultures.
  • Welcome an international person to your home
  • Stop calling ‘International People’ ‘Foreign’ or ‘Foreigners’. Interestingly, when I worked for CNN, the word ‘Foreign’ was replaced company-wide by the word ‘International’. That was over 15 years ago!

13 creative and fun ways to develop cultural diversity

Here are 13 ways to celebrate the day and develop your own understanding of cultural diversity:

  1. Rent a movie or read a book from another country or religion than your own.
  2. Explore the music of a different culture.
  3. Invite people from different cultures to share your customs.
  4. Go to a restaurant serving a type of cuisine you’ve never tasted before.
  5. Visit an art exhibit or a museum dedicated to other cultures.
  6. Invite a family or people in your neighborhood from another culture or religion to share a meal with you and exchange views on life.
  7. Read about the great thinkers of other cultures than yours (e.g. Confucius, Socrates, Avicenna, Ibn Khaldun, Aristotle, Ganesh, and Rumi).
  8. Visit a place of worship different than yours and participate in the celebration.
  9. Book a city break to explore foreign culture and customs.
  10. Play the “stereotypes game”. Stick a post-it on your forehead with the name of a country. Ask people to tell you stereotypes associated with people from that country. You win if you find out where you are from.
  11. Learn about traditional celebrations from other cultures; learn more about Hanukkah or Ramadan or about amazing celebrations of New Year’s Eve in Spain or Qingming festival in China. Why not throw a party to celebrate a holiday for a foreign friend?
  12. Go to a comedy club, assuming you speak some of the languages. See what people laugh at. Talk to them – laughter is a great leveler.
  13. Attend a sporting event and support the local team.

Videos On Kevy’s Journey to The World’s Cultures YouTube playlist

I Just Took A Trip Around The World – You Can Too!

I just completed a trip around the world. I returned today. That is why this post comes late.

But I am anxious to tell you about my journey. I was introduced to many of the cultures of the world. I could not spend too much time in Ethiopia, because it has over 80 cultures in that one country alone! I could never cover them all in a lifetime but covered many.

I am lying again, sort of. Well, not exactly. I did travel the world to observe its horn of plenty of cultures. But, I did it on YouTube.

I compiled the videos just for you below.


As I watched them all back to back, I gained a greater appreciation for others differences and the similarities.

It’s actually better to ‘marinade on’ the unity concept that I’ve discussed so far. Review these posts carefully:

· Culture – Each Is Individually Beautiful – Together …A Masterpiece – Come Together, Right Now! – U.N.I.T.Y. Y’all!
· SHARE – 9/11 – Let’s Talk About Racism! – Not To Heighten Pisstivity – We Need ‘Real Talk’ To Figure This Out!
· We Are One, Yawl – Kevy’s Hood-Zen River Rat Understanding – I Think I Might Jus’ Git, Git Git It!

Then, proceed back to watching the videos back-to-back. Please take time to do so. It will be a first step in uniting us all.

If it takes days to complete everyone, do so. You will finish this exercise enlightened, as I was.

I was so blunt in my recommendations on racism, simply because I feel deeply that God wants us united. And, I know that we all, me included, can do so much better, and make our world as beautiful as we all desire.
