Race, Ethnicity and Cultural Diversity Research Paper

Excerpt from Research Paper :

And there are always a few racists in any town. But I believe we have a great, open, accepting community. We entertain tourists from all over the planet, and many of them are from ethnic cultures different from ours. They say they feel welcomed here.

Q: What use does the community foundation make of the local AM station KMHS-AM?

M: I'm glad you asked. We have learning programs for parents and students. And students make up their own little reports and broadcasts. Topics range from the environment, world news, California news and Coos Bay news.

Q: Typically what news items from Coos Bay do you use on KMHS?

M: We interview people who are doing interesting things in town and with businesses. Biologists from the college and local fishermen. The news in this town isn't really very earth shaking. Look at the list of news items on the World's Website today: "Wheel falls off vehicle," "Gun is found in dead man's abandoned van," and "Sex offender."

Q: I understand there are about 16% of people in Coos Bay living below the poverty line. Are the schools involved helping these people at all?

M: We have Head Start for low-income children, and school lunches are free for kids under the poverty line. Also, our college students reach out to those in need, not just at Christmas time but year around. I'm proud of the caring side of our community.

Q: There are several registered sex offenders in Coos Bay. Does that concern the schools?

M: Certainly it does, but their address are published and we make them public. All of our parents have been notified in writing of the exact addresses of these offenders. Good communication is so important in matters like this.

Q: What changes would you make to this town to improve it culturally or in any other way?

M: I like it just the way it is. We do have problems, mainly due to the economy, but the city council and other leaders -- clergy included -- are very accessible for anyone who has problems or issues to resolve. We have school psychologists who work with kids when there is a death in the family or other traumatic events. Now if we can avoid a big earthquake or tsunami
