The United States is a nation comprised of many ethnic, racial, religious, and cultural groups. Yet despite this increased attention to diversity, there are no clear guidelines for moving us from a society that "tolerates" differences to one that "honors them. What has created these differences in society, in part is the immigration policies that the United States had and currently has, and the continuous change of clusters of peoples emigrating from different countries. What this book will examine is the social problem of the cultural sensitivity towards new immigrants by society through the lense of Orientalist theory, and how this understanding can be utilized in making us more culturally sensitive society and useful for social work pratice.
