Well, it’s about time. I’ve been trying to wrap my head around this idea that no culture has any more intrinsic worth than any other culture, but I just haven’t had any luck. Maybe Andrew Klavan can finally explain it to me:

Yep. I’d say that about clears it up.

    Today my high school sophmore son is participating in “diversity day” at school. It’s purpose is to sing the praises of everyone else’s culture EXCEPT OURS! How does this teach how wonderful our own country is? Exactly!

    When I was growing up, back in the days just after the last of the dinosaurs, there were many kids from minority cultures around our tiny little town (pop. >10,000).

    But we all knew each others’ cultures, and all the minority kids were expected to assimilate into the dominant culture.

    That assimilation was not real easy in some cases, but each of the kids was able to maintain their own traditions within their families while still chasing “the dream.”

    Now it is a sin to think that individuals can be “multi-cultural”. The demand for “multi-culturalism” isn’t a demand for acceptance, it’s merely a demand for fragmentation of our society.

    Post-racial my behind! It’s all racial to the pigsty Democraps and statists.
