Are we really practicing diversity?

Black Panther was a successful and positive example of instilling a sense of diversity in the youth. But this raises the question of whether we are truly practising diversity. We are not practising diversity simply by putting it in the film industries, giving the oppressed classes a chance, and "trying" to consider them equals. We'd be practising diversity the day we learned that a character depicted as blonde was played by a brown girl, and we'd be perfectly fine, no questions asked. We'll be practising diversity when we go talk to a marginalised group or a foreigner simply because we want to, not because for the sake of including them. Diversity is not real when we have to remind ourselves to practise it; it becomes real when it becomes second nature to us. When we start hinking of people as "humans," when we begin to see beneath the skin. But we can always keep trying, taking small steps toward diversity. We must achieve a sense of belonging and togetherness.

"We must learn to live as brothers and sisters or perish as fools together."

~King, Martin Luther, Jr.
