effects of living in multicultural societies

  Trifles is a multicultural novel you'll find relevant in your daily life; especially those who live in multicultural societies. It tells  a story of how good-intentioned and naive young ones are. Young ones see the world in black and white; no gray area. However, as they grow up, they tend to see that life is not that clear cut. They realize that there are things that are regarded highly without explanations. There are also things that are churned without reason as to why. They also come to learn that being good goes so far.
Those who try to be good, especially the privileged in multicutlural societies, realize also that it comes at a cost, minimum it might be.

However, trying to be different in a way the majority doesn't understand is akin to being insane. That is why social evangelism of who others are should be emphasized. No one should be forced to get along with people one doesn't know or doesn't understand. However, one has to be urged to put in efforts to make sure that people one doesn't understand are understood.
If one is to stay away from people of different characters, social inclinations and races, then one has to have a good, unbiased reason for doing so.
 
As much as one would want to believe that the mainstream is to blame for most of the problems faced by the minority in multicultural societies, the minority has to also make sure that they are understood (in a good way). Taking things at face-value should be controled.
I can't fault an old 'white' lady who is afraid of me because she'd seen someone like me on TV doing something bad. However, I have to get rid of her innocence by making sure she understands who I am. I can't simply ran with the mantra of racism when she might be swimming in innocent subconsciousness.
 
Trifles tells you some problems faced by immigrants (Sudanese in this case) and their good friends; those who've embraced them wholeheartedly. You'll be introduced to Adut and Angelina. They're young girls who think they can change the world by making sure that everyone says exactly what is in their hearts. They soon realize that their viewpoint will take their parents; Ayen, Jacqueline and Oliver, on a social ride of inter-racial uneasiness that nearly destroyed their families.
 
Trifles  includes the effect of  being too discreet, the relationship of immigrants with the police, and the relationship of the rich and the poor. How young men of African origin are perceived by Canadian meanstream is presented with both begrudging and ungrudging simplistic straightforwardness.
