The point is, that if they weren't telling you what they were doing or who they are, you wouldn't know. And that's ok in the sense of 'hurray for multi-culturalism!', but if it's relevent to the story that you need to know who they are, then the story is going to have a hard time succeeding. Plus it's good to be proud of who you are, so long as you recognize everyone else for who they are and accept them. There. You learned something. Unless you alread knew this. In which case you learned NOTHING and i'm not sorry!
