The multiculturalists among us are often dissatisfied with America, and want us to be like other countries. Have you noticed that the countries we should be most like - Sweden, France, Switzerland, Belgium - are the whitest countries in the world? There used to be a lot of admiration for Far Eastern attitudes, in religion, culture, or medicine, but now that India and China are gearing up as high-polluting capitalists that is fading, leaving only the other "advanced" industrial nations, which have state-sponsored medicine, premarital sex, and condescension, all greatly to be desired. Unfortunately, that's also the list of nations that were either colonial oppressors or made money selling arms to both sides during wars. And very, very, white.
You'd think that would be a lot to swallow, but apparently not.
Even at a national level, there is an admiration for Northeast, Upper Midwest, and Pacific Northwest attitudes, with the rest being Jesusland. California looks like an exception at first, but examining what people actually go to see in CA doesn't seem to be all that ethnic, nor all that joyful a mix for those there. No, those most in favor of multiculturalism in theory seem to like it least in practice. The places they wince at discussing - Texas, Mississippi, Georgia, Arkansas - have the highest nonwhite percentages. The shell game is that they tell themselves it's the Bad White people in those places that tick them off, the Red-White people.
At one level, it's true. They do dislike those people. Or pity them, or feel frustrated at them, or whatever. In fact, the Blue-White people seem fixated on that. They can't look away. They keep coming back to how terrible those folks are.
Because, what would they see if they had to look anywhere else, either inward or outward?
