What he said

I am going to include the word "multiculturalism" in this post for easy-to-find future googling. For the record, I agree with everything The Tiger in Winter has to say about racism and immigration policy. I am a child of immigrants myself.

I do not like official multiculturalism. I think that encouraging the formation of "community" groups is divisive, as is treating someone as part of a given "community" because of a shared ethnic background. I think that such programmes are patronizing at best, blatantly racist at worst.

I do not get along with racists. For one thing, they get a bad first impression of me, given that I'm brown. For another, I get a bad first (second, third, etc.) impression of them, given that they are idiots.
