Multiculturalism English Assessment

Published on

This is my English assessment that I had made with one friend from high school about the theme of multiculturism. This is a somewhat lesson about, for example, how we can be very patient with some people, like Muslims, either that they had made terrible and bad things. I had nothing against the Muslims or any other race, culture or religion beyond ours.
