Im writing this from a European perspective, I dont know how the climate is in the US.
Anyway there is almost dogma in Europe (especially in the mass-media) that multiculturalism is something everybody should strive for. Personally I am not convinced of this, at all. Now my question is ,not so much if it is a good thing or not. But why is it so controversial to be against this ideal? It is almost that you are labeled a racist if you think otherwise. Is this based on anything, is there any evidence that multicultural societies work better? What is this notion based on.
For the record: Nothing against immigration in principle, I am myself an immigrant. Still I dont think multiculturalism is the solution. Assimilation I think is they key where a homogenous society is something to work for.
Key question: Where is the evidence that an MC society works better than a homogenous society? to me it seems purely emotionally based. What are the pros, really? you can still let people immigrate into a country, but they would have to assimilate (sorry if my english sucks)
