Take the cultural competency quiz

by Los Angeles Magazine

March 30, 2012 | 4:23 pm

The April issue of Los Angeles magazine offers a compelling look into the ethnic mosaic that makes up LA.  The problem is, in a city whose residents speak over 100 languages, belong to dozens of religions and hail from a UN of nations, few of us really get to know our neighbors in all their diversity.  The reasons are varied—traffic, settlement patterns, legacies of redlining, weak public transportation—but enough with the excuses.  You can travel the world in Los Angeles, and it’s time to start.

To test your baseline knowledge of LA’s diversity, the magazine provided a very challenging quiz. With the permission of Los Angeles magazine editor Mary Melton—the hardest working woman in publishing—we’re reposting below.  Try it yourself, try it on your friends, and add your own questions to the comments section below.
