The understanding of prejudice can lead to us removing of racism and discrimination in our country. Stereotyping, or forming a set of characteristics thought to be common to all members of a certain group, leads to prejudice influencing the observer to be part of a group rather than an individual. Traits that go against the stereotype that could bring an end to prejudices, are ignored. The diversity movement claims that its goal is to halt racism and build acceptance of differences.

But, someone cannot teach students that their identity is determined by skin color and expect them to become colorblind. Someone cannot be exposed to multiculturalism and expect students to see each other as individual human beings. Someone cannot teach the need for self-esteem while destroying the staff that makes it possible. Basically, the diversity movement is a complete contradiction of itself, because after all is said and done, were back to where we started.
