Sample text

Suppose a mother from a nonwhite low-SES minority group has a chronic tendency to show up late for school appointments, if she shows up at all. The school psychologist knows that the mother has no competing demands on her time, and quite naturally concludes that this mother is irresponsible or unreliable. , see Sue & Sue, 2003, p. 169). Thus, with facile words, irresponsibility is magically transformed into a legitimate cultural trait that is to be accepted as normal. Thus, the blame has shifted from the mother’s behavior to the “Eurocentric” attitudes of the school psychologist, who can now be criticized as woefully ignorant and insensitive to the mother’s culture.

Opposing Arguments Are Simply Ignored. Criticisms cannot hurt multiculturalism if they are not even acknowledged to exist. The implicit worth and virtue of multiculturalism is seen as so profound that critics’ appeal to data, logic, and evidence is largely irrelevant—and not worthy of the effort required to respond seriously. When multicultural activists surround themselves only with likeminded individuals, and insulate themselves socially and professionally against exposure to legitimate criticism, then it becomes easier to simply convince themselves that their positions have no fatal weaknesses.

In reality, however, culture includes variables that are not easily visible to the naked eye, which are associated with socioeconomic status, the child-rearing philosophy of parents and caregivers, as well as a host of other religious, regional, subcultural, and school context variables (see Frisby, 2005b). Multiculturalism Degenerates Into Racialism. For all practical purposes, politicized multiculturalism equates culture with racial/ethnic group membership. As an example, consider the case of a second-generation Japanese American child from a hard-working Christian fishing family who grows up in the Pacific Northwest.
