This study explores the theme of diversity in Mexico through the experiences of 8 subjects who perceive their lives in a country that denies their situation, emphasizing their equality as human beings. The researcher's interest emerges from the perception that exists internally as well as externally in a country where diversity problems do not exist because of the connotation that it is given by focusing only on the racial issues and the scope of the concept is forgotten. The researcher found that there is a dual discourse in Mexico. On the one hand, the Mexican constitution protects the rights of all citizens; yet in the day to day life, there is a marked difference in the application of laws which leave individuals unprotected.
