Multicultural Etiquette


Living in the U.S. I've said and done offensive things that I didn't know where offensive until I got in trouble. Here are a few things I've learned.

  1. It's okay to speak the language of another culture.
  2. It's okay to eat the food of another culture.
  3. It's okay to use the technology of another culture. 
  4. It's okay for actors to dress in the clothes of another culture.
  5. It's NOT okay for you to dress in the clothes of another culture on Halloween. 
  6. It's NOT okay to tell an African American that they sound like a 'White' person - even if you're joking.
