According to there are three definitions for the word diversity. The first one is the state or fact of being diverse; difference; unlikeness. The second one is variety or mutiformity. The last and third one is a point of difference. To get an even better perspective on the word diversity  I decided to also look up its root word, diverse. According to diverse means of a different kind, form, character, etc. and it also means of various kinds or forms. Based on these definitions I can conclude that diversity means a variety or wide range of one thing. One example of this would be race. When I hear the word diversity the first thing that comes to my mind is color or race. One thinks of Hispanics or Latinos, African Americans, Caucasians, Asians, etc. However diversity is not only limited to race or color. Diversity can also be used to describe music. There is a wide range or variety of music and music classifications that would make diversity appropriate for describing music. There is rock music, classical music, pop music, rap music, techno music and much more. You could also use diversity to describe a specific section of issues. What I mean by this is that you could classify Latino Community issues or perhaps Asian community issues as diverse. There are many different issues that the Latino or Asian community can deal with or discuss. Diversity is all around us. One just has to open their eyes and see it.
