"The fear of diversity"
corresponds to a sort of defensive modality for what is unknown and which initiates a perceptive path of danger, since it could change the balance of one's personal identity. However, the fact that our mental mechanisms lead us to fear and avoid diversity must not be a justification for discrimination and contempt for what we do not know. In reality, the trump card must be represented by the meeting with others, by constructive confrontation and by overcoming one's own mental fears, containing any negative implications as much as possible.

The evolution of the species and human cultural development have made humanity understand that diversity represents WEALTH. Exchanges with different peoples and cultures have become flourishing trade, alliances between groups and civilizations, genetic, social and cultural enrichment.

Will we stop talking about "diversity" when it will always be present.
