The text is focused on Alfonso Reyes’s statement on the race question and racial prejuidice. In Hispanic America, people from different worlds, with habits and traditions that diverge, coexist. This fact does not consitute an obstacle, on the contrary, the multicultural society is considered by Alfonso Reyes to be fundamental for the cultural identity of the area. Hispanic America, in comparison with other parts of the world, adopted a more tolerant approach to the diverseness. Their knowledge based on hundreds of years of experience with cultural diversity can be a valuable source of inspiration for the European culture that felt into crisis in the twentieth century.
