See, that’s the great thing about America – our diversity. It gives us a depth that the old world doesn’t quite have yet. While they have centuries of history on us, we have this wide spectrum of what it means to be an American. So you are required to take a human diversity class. And in that class you’re required to do some library research. We have got this totally covered – some of these resources are really unique and interesting, so even if you’ve already fulfilled this requirement, you still might wanna check out:
