Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

The holiday season is a very busy time for many of us, with the shopping, the gift wrapping, the parties, and so on. It can be quite easy to just get so wrapped up with the stress of this time of the year, and completely forget about what Christmas is really all about. Therefore, my sincerest holiday wishes goes out to everyone at home, because really when it comes down to it, nothing is more special than spending time with our family and friends during the celebration of the birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Once again, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all!

Three Perspectives: The World in a Minority’s Eyes

The World in a Minoritys Eyes

Three Perspectives: The World in a Minority's Eyes

In the Western world, with its diversifications and superabundance most likely giving this corner of the earth the status of being its own planet, people of a visible ethnic minority typically concern themselves with the following questions constantly: Am I presenting myself in a way that provides me with personal satisfaction, considering my praiseworthy, individual aptitudes and the derogatory, cultural stereotypes of society? Am I a good representative of my racial and ethnic background? Am I fitting in with the North American culture while maintaining a sense of the problems that my homeland’s population are facing, due to the corruptive conditions given from commanding movements? Thus, visible ethnic minorities living in the considerable, comfortable surroundings of Canada or the United States of America, concern themselves not only with the characteristics that make them human, but with the signs of ignorance that make them belittled, degraded, and ultimately, dehumanized subordinates of the human race.
