Roman M's curator insight, April 16, 2015 12:11 PM

This article makes a lot of sense because if the kids grow up knowing different ethnic groups in school. Then they will not be so hateful or mind immigrants nearly as much as someone who hasn't been with those kids growing up. Some of the kids might have their best friends being a different ethnic group than them.

bobby isham's curator insight, April 20, 2015 5:50 PM

People believe that classrooms with mixed ethnicities boost tolerance for immigrants. They did a study on countries doing this and found it to be a successful way to get people to accept immigrants from other countries better

breanna mae johnson's curator insight, April 7, 9:55 AM
My opinion is that, emotions another human being isn't based on ethnicity. Just because another person is an immigrant does not mean  someone of a diffrent race will get along. It's all decided on those human beings. Therefore, people of diffrent races may Or may not be filled with hatred.
