Multicultural society A multicultural society is a society of people from different religions and backgrounds living in an area. These people many be different skin colours or from a different country. Race Race is a group of people with a similar biological background, similar beliefs in their community and in most cases similar skin colour, with additional similar features. They are ethnic groups that are defines on the basis of both physical and cultural characteristics. Comparing the two These two are similar to each other because they live in the same area and have the same reason for living in the area as everyone else that lives there.
