It is not rude to ask a person from a diverse background about their home country if you do so in a respectful way. In fact it helps you to be culturally competent and to LEARN more about diversity if you don’t make assumptions but ASK.
For Cultural Competence
- Know and understand your own world and the worldviews of people from other cultures;
- Have professional attitude towards, and knowledge of, cultural differences;
- Have communication skills
